The past year has been kind to Midwest jam/funk/prog rock band Earphorik, who has seen themselves touring the nation and getting to open for some of the biggest veterans in the scene including Umphrey’s McGee, moe., The Werks, The Main Squeeze, TAUK, New Mastersounds, and more. Starting on April 6th, they start the first leg of dates that include a night with TAUK, two dates with The Werks, and Earphorik’s debut performance in New York City at American Beauty on Sunday April 9th.
The year is early and already Earphorik has toured half of the nation from Colorado to the Southeast. The newly seasoned road dogs on the scene have been fine-tuning their unique style of open improve to ensure that each show is a one-of-a-kind experience that includes new covers and teases of other songs. The band is also hard at work compiling a best of 2016 live album titled Earphorik Live Volume 1.
To get you excited about everything Earphorik, we’re honored to share a video of the band jamming on the KISS classic “Detroit Rock City” with Jake Cinninger and Joel Cummins of Umphrey’s McGee. Taking place at El Club in Detroit, the thematically appropriate cover certainly set the house rocking! Check it out below.
