Thumb_1eb141d0-7220-4aaa-83df-897346ff2db8.

@The Haymarket

Thumb_1249471e-e2a7-437e-ab4a-92cd4c522415.

Grounded in blues, the band refined their unique sound into what can best be described as soul, a fusion of funk, r&b and Motown. Though compared to an array of musicians (Sly and the Family Stone, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelics, James Brown), their music retains deep gospel influences and positive lyrical messages.
