Off The Grid
Off the Grid (OTG) is a funk/rock band based out of Southern Maryland. OTG was founded by lead guitarist and vocalist Steve Leads who originates from northwestern NC. OTG’s genre is based from classic rock, rock, and funk. The blend of all of Leads past musical experiences is what makes OTG an anomaly. Leads first move from N.C. was to Atlanta where he played mostly at the Atlanta Underground.
Atlanta is where he had his first of three opportunities to be an opening act for Mother’s Finest at Alex Cooley’s Electric Ballroom. Mother’s Finest was a local Atlanta band that was on the way to becoming a nationally known funk/rock act. They are still touring internationally. Leads later moved to the Virginia tidewater area where he became a full time professional musician. He made his living playing six to seven nights a week in night clubs and upscale hotels on the east coast.
The original material performed by OTG is written by Leads. The band will be releasing an EP in early 2019. “Tick Tock”, “I Know”, “OTG”, and “If Ya Lookin” are some of the original songs you will hear OTG perform live. OTG’s mission is to attract a diverse following of people who are looking for something different that will satisfy more than one musical genre interest!
