The Candymakers' Recipe for Sweet Groovy Music

Dec 15, 2014

In this episode of IPR Studio One's "Java Blend," host Ben Kieffer will chat with The Candymakers.

Listen to the podcast to find out more about The Candymakers' latest album, Ridiculicious.

The Candymakers are a blues band with the traditions of old-school R&B, funk and soul.  This young band offers a sound that is contemporary, yet keeps the essence of music past.  Though the band is known for its soulful male vocalists, it is anchored by the collaborative genius of its blues driven guitarist, funky rhythm section and sultry horns. 

The band formed in 2010 and were awarded 1st place in the 2011 Iowa Blues Challenge.  After reaching the semi-finals in both The International Blues Challenge and The Kings of Beale Street Competition,  they returned home to release their debut album the next month in February of 2012.
