Bio....

With influences ranging from jazz, funk, blues and rock and roll, Hambone Relay redefines the modern organ trio with their own brand of high-energy live music.

The Philadelphia-based trio draws their inspiration from such organ greats as Jimmy Smith and Billy Preston while combining funky grooves and dauntless guitar lines in the same vein as The Meters. Staying true to their jazz roots, Hambone Relay’s live shows are a mixture of danceable grooves, psychedelic overtones and improvisational jams that are sure to leave you wanting more.

Quotes

“Creating your own lane in the music industry isn’t an easy feat, but Philly based jazz/funk band Hambone Relay have already solidified themselves as one of the grooviest groups on the East Coast.”

James G. - Vain Culture

“As multi-instrumentalists, songwriters, and touring musicians; their unique backgrounds, creativity, and pure happiness shine through on this collection of songs.”

Jeanette Beirne - The Spin Cycle

“Hambone Relay who tours regionally up and down the East Coast, can funk it out with the best of them, but they also like to showcase how all sorts of music can come together and push the boundaries of what funk music is.”
