Brimful of energy with a raw edge, catchy hooks, and tight
grooves. The band have a finely tuned sound based around retro funk grooves with a soulful edge, a Hammond organ based sound with a virtuoso horn section, soulful lead hook laden harmonies. The band evokes the spirit of 60s and early 70s funk as well as modern day funk jam bands whilst also focusing on strong soulful songwriting.
Crowd Company’s recent album ‘Now Or Never’ features appearances by Alan Evans from Soulive and Joe Tatton from The New Mastersounds. It enjoyed rave reviews and airplay across Europe, including being playlisted on the BBC Radio 6 Craig Charles Show.
As well as headlining sellout shows at many of London’s leading venues the band recently were asked to open for acclaimed Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings artists Saun & Starr. And before then they opened for and collaborated with New Orleans legend The Meters' George Porter Jr on his UK tour.
