Ernie Johnson From Detroit
Saturday, August 14 // 9:30-11 p.m.
Ernie Johnson From Detroit is a Cincinnati-based big band that blends funk, Afro-beat, and jazz with '70s psychedelia and hard rock to create a hypnotic, danceable sound that is both accessible and boundary pushing at the same time. Their stage show is known to be a high-energy, infectious dance party that centers on intense, spontaneous improvisation combined with tight, sophisticated compositions that live inside the groove.
The band released their self-titled debut album in 2018 to critical acclaim, garnering praise from both critics and musicians alike, in a city known more for indie rock, folk, and bluegrass. They brought the house down at Crave's WRFL stage in 2019 and we are excited to welcome them back on Saturday, August 14, 2021!
