The Comrades / 48Special

Band , Soul/R&B

ex VAT

€ 1.250

This 3 (often 4) man band has been setting national stages and parties on fire with their infectious musical mix of Soul, Rhythm&Blues, Jump & Jive and Latin for several years now. Mobile acoustic and/or (slightly) amplified

Equipped with instruments like double bass, guitar, drums and mostly also saxophone, this band proves that real music is timeless. Add to that the really beautiful polyphonic vocals, sung by 3 (or 4) charismatic heads and you know it:
These Comrades know where Abraham gets his 'mojo'.
Sometimes small, acoustically at a chic garden party, at other times popping in full armor at a big festival, company party, wedding, dance party or steaming club: what always remains is the inescapable energy and love for music. A much-heard criticism is therefore:
"You radiate so much fun, it just splashes off the stage"!
The Comrades can also be booked for larger dance parties under the name "48Special"
The band can also be expanded, so they offer an even more party guarantee
In this line-up the band could be admired at several summer festivals
