Imagine the nostalgic bands of your past making music that is fresh again. Modern songs built from your memories. This is the frequency movement. Musicians capturing the amalgamation of retro sounds in the current hip climate of today’s music; moving yesterday’s sound into “the now”.#ComeGetSome #JoinTheMovement #BecomeAFreque #AMFM
The live show frequently moves from 5 to 10 musicians, each bringing a spin on original songs that seem immediately familiar. The movement hints at your memories, yet feels fresh. The musicians are virtuosic and enjoyable to watch interact with eachother and the environment.
The record features 30+ live musicians over 3 days in Lancaster PA. The cast is worldclass.
The arrangements are emotive, dark, tense, fun and at times uplifting – as in the final resolution of “Social Club” where the 3-minute battle of tension and war concludes with a sense of light overcoming darkness.
“Consistently stellar” (Price, PA Musician Mag), “Andy Mowatt’s Steely Jam” is a funkdriven powerhouse from Pennsylvania, led by guitarist Andy Mowatt, “an absolute musical genius” (Devoy, Tellus 360) and “jazz-rock flamethrower on guitar” (Campbell, Gigspots). A fusion of New Orleans and Central PA, Mowatt’s “bright arrangements keep things sounding fresh” (PA Musician) and “inspire you to expand your mind and think outside the confines of traditional jazz, soul and funk!” (Robert, Positive Music Reviews). “Confident, to-the-point, and elegant” (Rocha, The Flinging Times), Andy and his group entertain and impress crowds with unique originals and modern twists on classic hits, “and yet, through many influences, each tune retains a sound that is distinctly Mowatt’s” (O’Brien, Fly Magazine).
