A Royal Clark
a royal clark is a rock n roll band from Beaver Dam Wisconsin. Since 2008 they've been recording albums and performing shows of original material all over the state. From the club stages of the cities to the county taverns, fairs, and festivals, the shows have gone great.
Their tunes are as honest as their culture. Covered in the dust and details of the towns they kick around in. Influenced by country, blues, and rock & roll, the songs give a stomp as well as get sweet. They are a seasoned act and the material is well tested. All of them in past Midwestern bands have been writing, recording, and performing for well over a decade.
Their third and latest record 'roll your own ankle' offers a most accurate description of the varied sounds of their live sets. Ambitions are strong to further tour, record, and maintain our way as musicians.
Born in a Madison, Wisconsin basement in the early winter of 2010, the collective began as a group of friends expressing themselves through musical experimentation.
Within a year, it expanded from one recording of a few people to an album of sixteen musical collages called Earth, featuring contributions of a dozen musicia
ns and a core group of six members: Elliott & Noah Gilfillan, Luke Peters, Logan Grahn, Chucky Brown, & John Anderson. The formation of the group reflects their sound: malleable, multi-polar, and evolutionary. With a base rooted in groove and dynamism, the music transverses the genres of the 50's to the present era, slicing from every good aspect of 90's rock with folk swing and neo-reggae-tronic elements.
As 2011 passed into 2012, the band progressed into a more defined and engaged entity - performing for Madison and Milwaukee audiences meeting like-minded groups such as Venice Gas House Trolley and Wook. The Earthlings were affirmed of their funk when they recently scored a spot at Summerfest 2013 by winning Milwaukee's River Rhythms Battle of the Bands.
With the various instrumentation & vocal harmonies soothing the air, the lead-sharing effect creates an immersive architecture that stands the hairs on end.
As positive vibrations spill forth, people become filled with the spirit of shared luminous consciousness and leave the experience with an impression that carries the excitement on into their lives forever.
