Papa Grows Funk
In Japan, they’ve sold 3,000 copies of their two CDs. In early 2004, several hundred enthusiastic Japanese fans grooved to PGF at Club Quattro in Tokyo and also at the Fuji Rock Festival in summer of 2005. “It was like the Beatles,” Gros said. “In the first song, when we went into June’s solo, whoever was sitting down was screaming and jumping up and down. It was wild.”
New York, San Francisco and Colorado have long embraced Papa Grows Funk. But plenty of markets remained untapped, as recent forays into Texas, the Northwest, Chicago and south Florida made clear.
“Five years into it, I’ve learned there are people that want to hear us,” Gros said. "And they’re excited when we show up. And it’s not just here. That gives us the momentum to keep going forward.”
