A quick chat with Grassy Spark

Cape Town based band Grassy Spark are one of the acts who will be performing at Park Acoustics this coming weekend in Pretoria. These boytjies have been making waves in the SA Music scene over the last few years and have played at almost every music festival in the country.

A quick chat with Grassy Spark 1

Grassy Spark is a collection of musicians with a passion for groove. They blend ska with rock, funk, reggae, latin and more all coming together to form a unique sound that is fueled by the love they have for music and the diversity of tastes and culture that cooks in the Mother City. They’ve been around since April 2012 and it doesn’t look like they are slowing down.

I recently had a chat to Josh Riley (the lead vocalist of Grassy Spark) – this is what he had to say:

What have you guys been up to lately? 

Strategising our next moves and writing A LOT! Times are changing and an evolution of the music is happening – very exciting but at the same time scary.

Who would win in a fight between Marvel and DC characters and why?

DC, because Superman (I think he’s DC haha). Otherwise the Hulk will destroy everyone haha. Anyone or thing that’s indestructible wins – hypothetically speaking; Superman even beats Goku…

What is the funniest thing you guys have ever experienced during a live show?

Yanick has either fallen through or fallen on stage multiple times. In Zambia he broke the stage. At Assembly Smooth Mike was too wild for him and bumped him over, and at the Hogs Tribute he tried to mosh me over and just fell – he is a clumsy one haha

What can we expect from you guys at Park Acoustics on the 26th of November?

Mense musn’t over think what to expect, they must just come ready and limber – its going to be wild 😉

I’d like to thank Josh and Grassy Spark for this interview and I wish them all of the best with their set at Park Acoustics this weekend and their future musical endeavors.
