We are pleased to announce LiveMusicDaily as the official media sponsor for an event in Montgomery, AL. The first event held by Live & Listen seeks to work with local business and the Run Bell Run campaign to raise money for cystic fibrosis.
Most of you already know by now that Earphunk is one of our favorite funk acts right now, clearly an emerging act with vast amounts of potential. Their most recent album has received over 580,000 downloads. They offer the nastiest in NOLA funk with B-3 cosmic organ slop, soaring lead solos, and staple crescent city vocals in a high energy live performance. They will be joined by the McLovin’s who rose to stardom as teenagers with their viral youtube video covering Phish’s “You Enjoy Myself”. Since then the group has drastically matured to become a staple amongst the Northeast and national music scene. This night is about great music for a great cause. This will be one for the archives.
Stay tuned for FREE ticket giveaways and additional pre-show exclusives.
Hailing from New Orleans, Prog-Funk band Earphunk has emerged as one of the Southeast’s premier jam acts. The quintet has been steadily building a rabid fan base across the United States with their unique brand of high-energy funk, inspired improvisation, and dynamic stage production. In an innovative move to get their music in the hands of live music fans, Earphunk have partnered with direct-to-fan publisher platform BitTorrent Bundle to release content-rich collections of live shows and studio albums.

McLovins specialize in the creation of dynamic and improvised sound, influenced by the members’ disparate and eclectic music influences. The band consists of Jason Ott, Jake Huffman, Justin Berger and Atticus Kelly.
These early twenty-year-olds embrace simultaneous and intricate improvisation with a more versatile front line in which all members are singing in four-part harmony, writing lyrics and music, as well as expounding on one another’s musical ideas. Set list segues and fiery improvisations are a staple of the band’s performances, keeping their audience always guessing what’s coming next and wanting more.
In the short time McLovins have been performing together, they have been invited to appear at an impressive number of well-established, as well as many new music festivals, and some of the most well respected venues in the North East. These guys are constantly writing and playing music, to continue to build on their own foundation, towards a long career of original rock music to their growing fan base.
