PERFORMING THIS MONTH - EPHEMERALS – LIVE
Fronted by Franglo-American sensation Wolf, Ephemerals are a London based soul family drawn from an all-star cast of musicians. The band is made up of players from Keke Mokoro, Gene Dudley Group, Dakhla, Kalakuta Millionaires, Marvelous & Bombs who have come together to create a funk sound both contemporary and classic.
Their grooves and laid back brass sounds conjure images of New York’s dark underbelly. A gritty, understated soul soundtrack for the modern age. Think Curtis Mayfield, think late Marvin Gaye, think rolling across the Brooklyn bridge in 1972 with a broken heart and a dream. That is the Ephemerals sound.
