(Nov. 24, 2017) Local musician Otto Grundman will have a party at Burley Oak in Berlin this Saturday to celebrate the release of his new eight-track CD, “Perpetual Motion,” from 8-11 p.m.

“Every song is different. There is rock, funk and folk. All the songs are original,” Grundman said. “I wrote, sing and produced the CD with a full band [including the leads, tracks and harmonies with a guitar, drums and a mandolin.]”

Snacks will be offered during the event and Grundman is slated to perform some of his new songs for the crowd. A limited number of posters, stickers and CDs will also be available for purchase.

“It is a celebration of the CD getting done,” Grundman said. “I categorize myself in the jam band genre since I play a mix of everything. It is an interesting CD and every song has a different sound. I’ve received good feedback from family and friends.”

The Bishopville native has been playing guitar for approximately 10 years as well as singing and playing lead guitar for various bands. The 29-year-old started performing on his own about two years ago. He also plays alongside his father, Dave Grundman, in the band G-Men and is a member of the local group, Muskrat Lightning.

“Muskrat Lightning is formally known as G-13,” Grundman said. “A couple of members were added. It’s had a good reputation for 20 years around here.”

Catch a G-Men performance at Hooked Up Ale House in Millville, Delaware, every Tuesday from 4-7 p.m., or Grundman performing solo at 99 Sea Level in Bethany Beach on Wednesdays from 3-6 p.m.

“I feel good listening to the CD and I am critical,” Grundman said. “I know people will like it. The music is sending out good vibrations.”

“Perpetual Motion” was recorded in March and April at John Lofton’s recording studio in Ocean City.

CDs can be purchased during any of Grundman’s area gigs, or contact him through “Otto Grundman Music” on Facebook and www.ottogrundmanmusic.com.
