An amazing night of music with the Charities and The Bash Dogs! Dance tunes supplied by way of soul, funk, rock, indi and latin jazz influences! The Charities are on a mission to bring their twist on funk and soul music to the ears of the world. They are a band of 6 brothers from Hermosa Beach, California. Bonded not by blood, but by their love for each other and the music they create.
Their music draws influence from funk, soul, Motown, jazz, disco, R&B, jam-band music and even rock n’ roll. It’s a melting pot of groovy intentions. On an individual level, their roots and influences range even further. Taking an improvisational approach to live shows gives The Charities an opportunity to blend these influences in an organic way that is always unique to each moment. The exchange of energy between the audience and the band builds into an experience that cannot be expressed in the studio. That is not to imply any distaste for the recording process, however. Wherever they have found themselves dwelling, they have built their own recording studio and utilized their collection of analog equipment to capture their musical adventures. Their latest studio work and first official EP, Alma, came out of their converted garage space in Manhattan beach, CA. After recording, producing, mixing, and mastering Alma, The Charities waved farewell to their hometowns in SoCal and relocated to a ranch near San Luis Obispo to start a new chapter as a band and grow tighter as a family. This bunch of pals has assembled to bring the world a musical vision that calls out to the listener to shake their booty and enjoy their life. As the band begins touring to wider reaches of the country and releasing more music, the ability to join in the fun is becoming easier and easier. Be on the lookout for new tour dates and come catch us at The Troubadour in LA on July 27th! The good times with The Charities are only just beginning!
