Graham Central Station was a funk band named after founder Larry Graham (formerly of Sly & the Family Stone). The name is a pun on New York Citymarker's Grand Central Stationmarker.

The band's origins date from when Santana guitarist Neal Schon formed the band Azteca along with Larry Graham (bass guitar) and Gregg Errico (drums), both from Sly & the Family Stone, and Pete Sears (keyboards), from Hot Tuna and Jefferson Starship. Santana bass guitar player Tom Rutley would move into to the bass spot with Azteca. That band, like Santana with heavy Latin influences, would eventually morph into Graham Central Station, while Schon would find Journey. The invention of electric slap bass is attributed by many (including Victor Wooten) to Larry Graham, which influenced many musical genres, such as funk, R&B and disco.

Graham Central Station's biggest hit was "Your Love", which charted at number 9 in 1975. The group also integrated gospel music into their repertoire, and played with the dichotomy between the funk/rock star image and the "sanctified" gospel group image. Some of their recordings feature the Tower of Power horn section.
