When LouderSounds preaches “Let Beaux Gris Gris & The Apocalypse twist yer melons and remind you of the wonder of life” it might be because the bands vibe is easier to pin down than their unique take on the roots genre.

To fully understand Beaux Gris Gris & The Apocalypse is to experience the band live, a mix of soulful songs, intense energy, and world class award-winning musicianship. Having headlined festivals across Europe, including Upton Blues Festival (UK), The Great British R&B Festival (UK), Moulin Blues (Netherlands) and Blues Alive (Czech Republic), the band were nominated for Band of the Year at the European Blues Awards.

Multi-award-winning vocalist and songwriter Greta Valenti is a New Orleans Native. Her rock outfit Well Hung Heart (OCMA’s Best Live Band) toured the USA opening for the likes of Foreigner and Offspring. With Beaux Gris Gris, Valenti taps into her Louisiana roots and is able to show the full range of her vocal prowess. Classic Rock Magazine singles out album track Have Mercy as an example - “A soul belter on the tightrope between Aretha’s Respect and the Stones You Can’t Always Get What You Want”.

Guitarist Robin Davey was the youngest ever inductee into the British Blues Hall of Fame as a founder member of cult British Blues band, The Hoax. As a producer he achieved a Top 5 hit on the Billboard Blues Charts, and has recorded with a wide spectrum of artists from Mick Jagger to Katy Perry.

Bungalow Paradise is the first single from their forthcoming second album. It immediately hit #2 in the French blues charts and top 20 in the UK blues charts. In the USA it was play-listed on radio across the country (including KHUM & KCSN California, KJAC & KVNF Colorado, WYCE Michigan and WCLX New Hampshire). The new album is set for worldwide release in September 2021.
