All Cows Eat Grass, formed in 2011, is named after the mnemonic device used to remember the A, C, E and G notes related to the bass clef of the musical staff.
However, there's another layer to their name, which metaphorically means that even as individuals we are all the same.
Terrence "T. Brown" from North Memphis, Jeff "iamjeffcohran" from South Memphis and Reneeka Rae from Clarksville, Tenn., became a trio through their work relationship, as they are all part of Janelle Monae's tour production team. It was a natural progression from creating Monae's live experience to living together to now creating their own music together.
All Cows Eat Grass will be in concert at 7 o'clock tonight at the Bessie Smith Cultural Center, the next headliner in the Levitt AMP concert series. Seaux Chill will open.
Their travels with Monae have resulted in the creation of tribal, funky, electro-trap tunes that express a cultivated world sound.
"When we perform, it's important for us to give the crowd smiling faces, great entertainment and showmanship, and jamming, danceable music," ACEG says in a news release.
