Trae Pierce & The T-Stones – Grammy Award-winning bassist Trae Pierce is leading a wild new musical experience known as Trae Pierce & the T-Stones (TPTS). Defined by hard-edged funk and hip-hop mixed with rock and blues, TPTS has developed a high-energy live show with a modern feel that also recalls the unstoppable grooves of Bootsy Collins: they “wants to funk you up!” Trae is a world-class bassist and four-time Grammy Award-winner (with the legendary Blind Boys of Alabama) who cut his bass chops as a member of The Ohio Players.
From his Florida home, this bass “monster” has hand-picked a vibrant young group of musicians with limitless energy and extreme talent, and together they’ve been tearing up dance floors throughout the Southeast with a genre-blending twist of funk-rock rhythms that bring out the best in every beat. After sharing the stage with funk powerhouses George Clinton, Parliament Funkadelic, The Revivalists, Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, and The Main Squeeze among others, TPTS is ready to take their party nationwide, so get ready to experience a night of fun-and-funk, coming soon to a club, college or festival near you.
