Crowd Company

 

What they say…

“If you’re partial to the loping, musically tight backbeats of bands such as The Meters you’ll enjoy what’s on offer here!”

Guitarist magazine

 

 

London-based 8 piece band Crowd Company provide a modern take on vintage funk & soul. Brimful of energy with a raw edge, catchy hooks/ melodies and tight groovy rhythms, the band combine a retro Hammond organ based sound with a virtuoso horn section, soulful vocals and harmony vocals.

The Crowd Company sound evokes the spirit of 60s and early 70s funk as well as modern day funk jam bands whilst also focusing on strong soulful songwriting which combine funk with soul, blues and modern jazz. The band have drawn accolades from their musical peers and have shared the stage with the likes of George Porter Jr from The Meters, as well as opened for  The New Mastersounds and Alan Evans Trio.

A busy working band…Crowd Company headline many leading venues and have played prestigious venues such as The 100 Club, The Borderline, Band On The Wall, Concorde2. In a previous incarnation the band toured the USA west coast playing venues such as Boom Boom Room and Slims in San Francisco.

The group is renowned for its dynami, live performances and this spirit is captured onto analog tape on their upcoming debut album ”Now Or Never”. This release features appearances by Alan Evans from Soulive (who also mixed the album) and Joe Tatton from The New Mastersounds.
