In this encore episode of IPR Studio One's "Java Blend," join host Ben Kieffer as he catches up with Davenport's versatile jam band Firesale.
Listen to their unique blend of ska, funk and rock below.
Firesale's music can switch from Phish level rock to traditional reggae to funk on a dime. They pepper their singles with transitions and solos and extended instrumentals. Their live shows do the same, and then some.The Davenport-based "Java Blend" veterans have moved far beyond “Iowa’s Front Porch.” Fire Sale has played shows all around the region with such bands as Dave Zollo and the Body Electric, Euforquestra, Zeta June and Paa Kow’s By All Means Band. Their second album, Mind Breath, was released in 2012, but the band expands their repertoire each time out by including extended mixes and jams on their already crowd favorites. - Bio Credit to Dave Murphy
