SPARK

At some point in time we all experience that earth shattering boom of jubilation when we witness something true, joyful and straight from the heart. Now, combine this feeling with a hint of stank and a lil’ pinch of funk and let it cook up a bubbling gumbo of raw, tantalising soul. It is exactly this stew of musical goodness the band SPARK are looking for. Heck; it is the sole reason for their existence.

Driven by organ, guitar and propelled by percussion and drums, the members of SPARK are four wandering souls tied together by fate who have set out on one, bold mission: Lighting a fire. Using their skills and their drive they are chasing those good old burning tunes and together they meticulously ignite grooving rhythms combined with soulful melodies and jams.

Rooted deep in the tradition of legends like The Meters, Jimmy McGriff and Booker T., this fine bunch of kindred spirits sets out to create original tunes which will get you out of your seat and up on your feet dancing with a funky grin on your face all night long. Expect no less then dedicated musicians, igniting their passion to create one, big sizzling SPARK.

From our first get-together/rehearsal sometime ago with @basvanderwal , @bulkysimmons , @anouk_verdonk  and myself because we figured we all had the same taste in music... Guess what... WE DID! So, a new band is born! We’ll fill in the details later ( a name and such ..). I’ll do some more mixing in the next couple of days. Organ is a bit distorted but that doesn’t spoil the fun for me :).
