      Bio

      During the early 90s, a Philadelphia band called G. Love & Special Sauce combined east coast blues and R&B with the laid back attitude of the west coast, adding just little bit of hip hop, to create a totally unique sound. The sound brought them critical acclaim as well as tour dates full of supportive and appreciative fans. G. Love and Special Sauce's 1999 album, Philadelphonic, brought them into the mainstream and the band has been working diligently to keep their fans happy ever since.

      Guitarist, harmonicist, and lead singer Garrett Dutton (aka G. Love) and drummer Jeffrey Clemens formed G. Love and Special Sauce in 1993. The next year, they released their eponymous debut album, which featured the hit single "Cold Beverage." The album's success led to nearly a year of performing tour dates that showcased G. Love and Special Sauce's lazy musical style. The group's next hit came in 1999 with the release of Philadelphonic, which reached #1 on the Heatseekers chart and featured special guest Jack Johnson. By the release of 2008's Superhero Brother, G. Love and Special Sauce were incorporating musical styles beyond just blues and R&B, including soul and classic rock.

      The album received positive reviews and things were looking up for the band, until a year later when Jimi Prescott announced his departure from the group. They were largely under the radar for the next five years, rigorously touring while G. Love completed his solo album, Fixin' To Die. Then, in 2014, good news arrived for fans in the form of a new album announcement, and the return of Jimi Prescott. G. Love & Special Sauce's seventh studio album, Sugar, proved to be one of their best, reaching number 43 on the Billboard charts. It was also the first album that the band released on Jack Johnson's Bushfire Records, followed by Love Saves the Day just a year later.

      As always, G. Love & Special Sauce have been touring non-stop in between studio albums; so much so that their limited edition, two disc live album Live at Boulder Theatre, in 2019 became a testament to their cultivated and seasoned live performances.
