Part Bear

Part Bear


Infectious Rock...nothing more nothing less


In 2006, Gray Griggs met up with Will Begnaud, drummer for Rhythm Token. Begnaud, who had played with a mixture of local bands, and Griggs who had previously played everything from jazz to singer/songwriter, hit it off after playing together. What seemed like an unlikely pair became the band Part Bear. In the summer of 2007, Robin Cofer, a scene vet who had played for various other local bands, completed the three piece on bass just in time to play with The Marshall Tucker Band at the Georgia Theatre in Athens, Ga.

Since then, Part Bear has played around the Southeast and has gained a devoted following. Their sound can't be pigeonholed into any particular genre, but never fails to overwhelm venues with what Griggs calls, "just straight rock." They draw from an eclectic source of influences old and new, raw and polished, hectic and easy-going. Whatever they sound like, their shows are always entertaining from Cofer's wild crowd interaction to their infectious beat that makes even the most reserved concert-goer move their feet.
