"The Candymakers will whet your pallet with a tasty mix of Funk, Soul & Blues tunes that will have you up on your feet! With a wide range of musical appeal, The Candymakers offer a sound that is contemporary, yet keeps the essence of old-school groove bands of musics' past.

"Although emulating the many talents of artists such as Ben Harper, Aretha Franklin & BB King, it's important to the band to produce an original sound that keeps fans craving more. The culmination of this group is a mix of automatic musical chemistry, as well as an abundance of talent and technique. Though the band is well known for their strong and soulful vocals, they are anchored by the keyboard and percussionists robust and funky grooves. While their sultry horn and the collaborative genius of their full-flavored blues driven guitarists add even more depth to the Candymakers equation."
