THE EARFUL ON TOUR IN DECEMBER – HEADLINE DATES & SUPPORTING THE WAILERSWARNING! THIS IS NOT YOUR FATHER’S FUNK!“The fact remains that their attention to song craft and creating danceable music has been an uncompromising success. This band could easily be a headliner and I believe it’s only a matter of time until they are taking top billing around the country.” -Nicholas Stock, Jambands.com
The Earful will be on the road for a string of 12 dates in December, including nine nights with The Original Wailers. With dates in California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, and Idaho, The Earful are set to funk up your earhole for the holidays. Bringing together various styles of funk, soul and jazz, The Earful delivers high-powered grooves and rhythm that would make James Brown start shaking in his grave!Nominated for Best Jazz Artist in San Diego in 2013, The Earful draws on the sounds of P-Funk, Sly and the Family Stone, and of course, the king of funk himself, James Brown. The Earful touches on various styles of funk in all of its forms, paying tribute to the greats while contributing a unique flair and heart that represents their own unique interpretation. With a driving Hammond B-3, smooth bass lines, unparalleled guitar riffs, groovy percussion, and stabbing brass hits, The Earful masterly weaves their soulful melodies into an energetic and unmatched performance.“The Earful delivered a high energy performance that got the party started right! There are plenty of funk bands vying for attention these days, and energy is ultimately what tends to separate the contenders from the pretenders. The Earful brought it, and the enthusiastic crowd reflected it back!” -Greg M.
