The Royal Noise
Founded and led by guitarist Johan Harvey, Savannah's foremost jazz-funk collective quickly established itself as a high energy, grooving crew. Drawing from vintage and contemporary influences alike, they are conceiving an ebullient fusion of sinewy funk, gritty jazz, psychedelic rock and live hip-hop elements with a distinctly southern flavor, reminiscent of fusion acts like Herbie Hancock, Lost Tribe, Lettuce and Mother Funk Conspiracy.
"the whole damn band is a opack of rhythm devils … a clear case of a half-dozen souls consumed by percussion poltergeists, and there are only two things they could have done: call an exorcist or form a kick-ass jazz/funk band. Fortunately for us, The Royal Noise gave in to the beat beast and did the latter." - Brian Robbins, JAMBANDS.COM
Informed by old school soul, funk, and jazz, The Sermon! is a funky quartet from the borough of West Chester PA. Taking their name from the classic Jimmy Smith record, The Sermon! is primarily an instrumental, Hammond B-3 organ-driven group influenced by the stylings of Grant Green, Lonnie Smith, James Brown, Soulive, Bill Withers, MMW, and others. Climactic live performances are a staple to the band's high energy stage presence.
"These guys are pure energy. There is absolutely no doubt that when perform, they do so from their hearts."- Ernest Stuart, Center City Jazz Festival organizer
