Few bands arouse a crowd into a collective shake like Flow Tribe. The six-member band’s onstage chemistry reflects a seamless combination of soul and movement that hits the audience within the first few notes. Virgin listeners and avid fans alike are drawn in by the distinctive sound that feels both familiar and original. From major festival stages around the world to leading a parade down the street, this is a group of professional musicians who’ve found their passion, and are living a dream where everyone’s welcome.
Second line brass and Cuban-Caribbean rhythms meld with R&B, soul, rock, and hip-hop beats in high-energy performances that turn every show into a celebration. New Orleans is influence itself, the unparalleled free and easy city weaving its way into track after track of original scores that make up a single definition of sound, which Flow Tribe has dubbed “backbone-cracking music.”
K.C. O’Rorke (vocals, trumpet), John-Michael Early (harmonica, washboard, vocals, keyboard), Nick Solnick (drums), Chad Penot (bass, vocals), Bryan Santos (guitar, timbales), and Mario Palmisano (guitar) are native New Orleanians and high school pals who’ve been writing music and playing live shows since the band’s inception in 2004. Post graduation, they went their separate ways, but after Katrina, each returned to their hometown, inherently becoming active members in the rebuilding of a
community that’s stronger than ever.
In 2017 Flow Tribe teamed up with legendary Hip Hop producer Mannie Fresh (Lil Wayne, Big Tymers) to create the album “BOSS”. The album reached #55 on the Billboard R&B charts and #5 on the Relix/Jambands.com chart reflecting the diversity of sound represented on the album. After relentless touring, Flow Tribe completed building a state of the art studio in New Orleans called Downman Sounds. They are now putting the finishing touches on a 2-part EP coming out in late 2018 and 2019.
Fux is like an Electric Storm, bringing back the Raw to Rock-n-Roll. The name derives from composer Johann Joseph Fux, who helped modernize Western Music and is the author of Gradus ad Parnassum, a treatise on counterpoint. Blending their love for Phish, Umphrey’s McGee, TAUK, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Steely Dan and many classic rock bands, Sultan set out to find the final puzzle pieces to this mystical musical monster, which lead to the discovery of Dustin Fennell, Michael Crowe and Eric Johnson. Thus in an erotic crossfire hurricane Fux was born.
Fux decided it was time to take their knowledge and mend it with their soul to work towards getting the masses dancing, laid, and spreading Love. After receiving knowledge from idols Jacob Alan Cinninger, Brendan Bayliss (Umphrey’s McGee) and Gabriel Marin (Consider the Source) they were finally ready to show the world what was brewing in their mind to create music that makes sense.
Fux combines their goofy and laid back personalities on and off stage to help spread cheerfulness and positivity to the world. Don't let their silly attitudes fool you, these boys show up to play. With the machine like transcendental rhythmic varieties from Eric , smooth sea of key rhythms from Michael, thunderous bass love bombs from Dustin and sporadic ignition from Sultan, Fux will keep you dancing all night long.
