Featured Artist – Griffin and the Gargoyles

For this installment of our Featured Artist series, we sat down with Garland Griffin, better known as “Griff”, to learn a bit more about his band, Griffin and the Gargoyles.

If unfamiliar with Griffin and the Gargoyles, they are one of the most in-demand bands in the entire Midwest. Playing well over fifty weddings, corporate events and galas each year in addition to weekly club and festival performances, Griffin knows how to get any crowd on its feet. Griffin also heads up Griffin Events, a professional DJ and production service which can handle everything from a DJ to staging, lighting and more.


Who is your favorite band?

My favorite band of all time? I grew up listening to Elvis but I really love Rod Stewart.

What is your favorite song to perform? 

Any song that people dance to. If people are up dancing having fun, that’s the one I like.

What should people know about you?

I love what I do! I have a great time. I love singing, I love performing, I love when people have a great time.

What’s the craziest thing that ever happened at a performance ?

So we were playing a party for Whitfield High School and Nelly was there with his daughter, who went to the school. We started playing “Shake Ya Tailfeather” and Nelly got up and rapped with us. He had Ashanti with him that night as his date.
