Come join us for the 3rd Annual Holiday Gritz on 3rd Street event featuring Atlanta's most in-demand Live Band, Gritz & Jelly Butter!

This year's event features Gritz performing their latest material plus.. the Holiday Gritz veteran and Ladies Choice, Ken J Martin, the unique musical stylings of Atlanta's 'Born Star' theDOLLDAZE, Live Painting by Alan Grimes, beauty, essence, & skincare by honeysuckle Moon & more! Rumor has the new Gritz & Jelly Butter CD will also be on sale hot off the presses! Don't miss this now classic Atlanta event!

Just one listen to the new and explosive Atlanta-based band, Gritz & Jelly Butter and you too will become a believer in 'the Revolution'. The musical revolution, that is. The 4 piece collective of musicians and vocalists was formed by what they refer to as the 'natural mystic' and is committed to sending a message of personal freedom through their unique style of music and creative expression.

Best consumed live, a standard serving of Gritz & Jelly Butter includes an eclectic mix of Soul, R&B, Jazz, Hip Hop, Reggae, and Rock vibes that more often than not... are simply cataclysmic. At one moment, a sultry, well-formed ballad, delivered with gentle precision by the soulful crooner J. Winston. Moments later your mood is suddenly and abruptly interrupted by a raw and captivating jam session joint, unashamed of its nakedness. Be assured that the rhythmic combination of Winston , David 'Sho-Tyme' Holmes on Drums, and Wayne 'Mister' James on Bass will down right pimp slap you into a new awakedeness. And just as you begin to think you've figured them out, the rhythm drops into an unfamiliar 7 count and you are introduced to yet another vocal weapon of mass disruption, in the form of original artist Chocolate Thaii. Cover songs old and new gain new identities... while the band's impressive list of originals paves the way for a new brand of soul/funk music.

Ken j.’s notable lyrics range from heartfelt love ballads to revolutionary anthems evoking memories of music legends Marvin Gaye and Bob Marley. In an industry of superficial love, Ken j. captures audiences by composing songs that identify blissfully indescribable feelings. His caviar voice and guy next door personality melts hearts and enamors listeners. Whether expressing the innocence of new love or highlighting the ills of societal confines, the world consciousness and emotional harmonies woven into his songs make his performances an experience.

Ascending towards international regard for his vocal flair and songwriting prowess, Ken j. is the next male sensation. Maintaining his entrepreneurial savvy through creative business ventures, he hosts The Rent Show, a monthly artist showcase and Ken j. and Friends, an annual fundraising event aimed at creating seasonal plays featuring bands and artists in the Atlanta area. His ultimate objective is to be a great writer and composer so that he can develop an Outreach Program for Youth. Whether original or cover Ken j. is bound to send the crowd into a frenzy.

In constant inspiration from life, Ken j. has began work on his third album. After numerous television appearances, collaborations and being on the road, he patiently awaits the opportunity to share feelings of peace, love and inspiration. On this upcoming release, he will not only display his growth, but will present a platform for a new stage in acoustic soul music.
