Combining their many talents as singers, songwriters and multi-instrumentalists, The Sidleys are a family that is creating a rich musical tradition in the Washington DC area.
From a very early age, music was an integral part of Wil Gravatt's life. Wil’s mother worked for the legendary Capitol Records; and he was exposed to the sounds of the Beatles, Janis Joplin, Buck Owens, and Waylon Jennings to name a few.
When Wil is not performing with the full Wil Gravatt Band he often does solo/duo and trio performances. These shows are ideal for events where the size of the venue or smaller budgets require a scaled back performance.
A long time ago (well, 1992), in a basement far, far away (Fredericksburg, VA to be exact), three guys got together to learn a couple dixieland tunes for a club date. It was during this rehearsal that the idea for the Dixie Power Trio was born. A dixieland band that played rock and roll!
