Hambone Relay combines Funk, Jazz and Rock & Roll to create their own brand of high-energy live music. The band was founded in 2012 by Mark Brown who began his career as the keyboardist for the Baltimore-based band The Bridge. He is joined by Rob Tait on drums and Luke Ferracone on guitar. New to the band this year is Baltimore native and song-writer Jordan August on vocals and guitar.
The Hammond organ is at the center of this Funk Rock outfit whose influences include Jimmy Smith, The Meters, The Allman Brothers, Jimi Hendrix and Soulive. The band has released 3 studio albums and 2 live albums consistently touring the East Coast playing about 100 shows a year. Staying true to their roots, Hambone Relay’s live shows are a mixture of danceable grooves, psychedelic overtones and improvisational jams.
