Grace & the Grit

Aug 10, Saturday - 1:30pm
Blues/Big Easy Stage

Embodying both elegance and raw passion, Grace and The Grit are dedicated to keeping the spirit of blues alive. They bring together an exhilarating blend of soulful melodies and old school grittiness, performing with high energy and joy!

Founded by soul-stirring vocalist Nehal Abuelata and charismatic blues guitarist Austin Geiger, this San José-based band has quickly carved out a niche in the blues scene, featuring powerhouse harmonica player Ryan Walker, funky drummer Matt Condino, and smooth bass man Adam Martinez.

Their fresh original take on classic soul and blues has captivated local audiences and brought them to notable venues such as the San José Fountain Blues Festival and the Mountain Winery — setting the scene for legends like Diana Ross and Gladys Knight.
