In the beginning of 2010, and in such an uncommon place for their soulful passion as Barcelona (Spain), The Excitements have come crashing out the gate delivering a Rhythm and Blues breed of music with a Soul and Rock edge, completely unseen in stages nowadays.
Influenced by the finest black music of the preceeding century, its rhythm section delivers tight backbone, and is complemented by a horn section in the late 50's and early 60's tradition, all of it fronted by the powerful howl of Koko Jean Davis. And so, the Mozambique-born Soul Sister adds her ferocious whirlwind of power and energy, pushing the band towards a territory in which having a good time, dancing and shouting is all that matters.
Etta James, Ike and Tina, early James Brown or Sugar Pie de Santo are only a few names you should expect as the basis to the Excitements' stay-true-to-the-roots sound, which, at this time, you can find on a string of scorching 45s preceeding their inminent LP debut, all of it released on Barcelona's Penniman Records, one of the most important R&B and old school Soul labels around the globe.
So put on your dancin' shoes and join to the groove and energy show of The Excitements, very soon hittin' YOUR town!
