In the spirit of the great power trios of rock history Max Gross Weight drops a heavy sound on the listener. Inspired by rock giants like Jimi Hendrix Experience, Rush, Nirvana, and Cream, Max Gross Weight is chasing a decidedly rock and roll aesthetic but they draw their influences and inspiration from sources outside of a typical rock sound. The band plays a driving and energetic mix of covers and originals. One minute the band will play a high tech instrumental and the next cover a straight rocker. Blues influences are felt throughout as well as a deeply funky grooves. Covers come from artists as diverse as Soundgarden, Led Zeppelin, David Grisman, Rush, Danny Gatton, Sam Bush, and ZZ Top. MGW is led by lead singer and guitarist Bradley "Chum" Carter, with Dakota Waddell on bass, and Cody Britton on drums.
