"The Funk Show of the Year went down the other weekend at Tractor Tavern. Eldridge Gravy & the Court Supreme cranked the heat way up, revealing the grittiest get-down side to their electro disco beats yet."
Johannah Juarez - SSG Music
"If there's doubt that funk is anything but alive, well and ass-kicking, critics need look no further"
Erin Thompson - Seattle Weekly
"...The backup singers and horns are tight, and the baby-faced, curly-maned Mr. Gravy can wail, shout and moan with sweaty force...When the Court was in session, they got people moving."
Misha Berson - Seattle Times
"Eldridge Gravy & the Court Supreme: Sly Stone, James Brown and George Clinton rolled into one. Get "Us Is What Time It Is" and play it loud. You will no longer need your gym membership."
John Fossett - Kitsap Sun
"There's so much brassy fun and lubricious groove science packed into each cut, you pretty much have to go out of your way not to sweat (and get laid) to [Party Hard]."
"Eldridge Gravy & the Court Supreme's shows flamboyantly accentuate the positive with mostly up-tempo, tried-and-true maneuvers: dynamic horn charts; intricate, rousing vocal interplay; "Good god!"–inducing rhythms; and inspirational keyboard swells. Unless you're an industrial-grade curmudgeon, Eldridge Gravy's bold, brassy attack wipes out glumness within seconds."
Dave Segal - The Stranger
"The Cult of Cthulhu conspired to abduct the artist Prince and by dark, arcane ritual conceived the accursed soul man: Eldridge Gravy. Granted his freedom, Eldridge assembled his Court Supreme. This hand-picked squadron of funksters proceeded to purge the Northwest from the doldrums. Their high-energy, tight arrangements and massive stage presence has the power to convince any crowd that funk ain’t dead. Eldridge Gravy and the Court Supreme’s sophomore album, “Party Hard”, finds the Seattle ensemble delving further into the raw soul and funk sounds they explored on their debut album “Us Is What Time It Is.” Get Down!"
"Anyone that has heard the group on record knows that they are a brilliant funk and R&B unit."
"Eldridge Gravy and the Court Supreme is one of the tightest, funkiest bands east of the Mississippi. These cats don't sample hip hop beats or loops; they build their grooves organically from scratch - from the ground up." "This outfit takes a little bit of Prince, P-Funk, Otis Redding, Temptations, Sly and the Family Stone, Stevie Wonder and throws it in the musical pot to create a tasty and sexy musical gravy, if you will."
Greg Roth - Examiner
"The verdict is final: "Party Hard" is by Eldridge Gravy & The Court Supreme, the radio disc of the summer"
Nathan nagging - Wasser-Prawda
"Eldridge Gravy’s vocals soar out above the mix and are nicely followed by a barrage of backup vocals with no shortage of “ooohh”s and “aaahh”s, while the instrumental section provides a nice backing to the soulful lyrics."
