A Toast To Geto Gala

By: Laurie Gallardo

Considering the dynamos behind the synergy of Geto Gala, perhaps the whole might be greater than the sum of its parts. But tap on the breaks there, Aristotle. Both are great artists in their own right. Bastrop-born and raised Deezie Brown enchants and intrigues with the autobiographical stories of 5th Wheel Fairytale, where funk, gospel, roots and twang intertwine; while the multi-faceted Jake Lloyd leads the pack with instant classics “Sweat,” “Cold Summer” and “Crossroading.” The BreaksFresh Knight put it best when describing Lloyd as “…not all R&B, not all Soul, not entirely Rock, or Country, he’s just Jake.” Therefore, Geto Gala equals badass, times ten.

Today, Geto Gala grants you “Champagne Wishes,” a new single to further entice your thirst, featuring tantalizing synth-bass by fellow eternal badass JaRon Marshal. And it encapsulates the Geto Gala essence perfectly, in Lloyd’s own words when talking about their creations in general: “…southern-centric with luxury and sports undertones. Imagine if baseball cards could rap.”

Best. Description. Ever. Join Geto Gala at their single release show tonight, Friday Dec. 9, at Firehouse Lounge, 605 Brazos. Doors at 8 p.m. Clink those crystal flutes. Salud.
