Frequilibrium brings their melting pot of funk, blues, & rock back to Kenny’s with hometown blue-rock bosses Easy Riders!
Frequilibrium is a 4 piece funk/roots rock fusion band based out of Chicagoland. A relatively newer act, the four naturally harness the power of the Southern rock greats, drawing influences from The Allman Brothers Band and The Marcus King Band, while offering the progressive ingenuity of the next generation and a solid understanding of multiple genres. Their music is formed playfully but with much precision and care, providing the listener with a heartfelt experience within the first few bars.
The bandmates exude a brotherly chemistry both on and off-stage, which is no surprise, as bassist and lead guitarist/singer, Luke and Jake, respectively, are siblings. They have spent the past several years covering the likes of The Beatles and Paul Simon as an acoustic duo, their voices possessing the perfect ranges to pay tribute to these legends. Each member of Frequilibrium boasts a background in many styles of music, having declared themselves an eclectic mix of “ADD Rock.” You may find yourself in a bluesy, B.B. King-esque haze one moment, then instantly propelled into the throes of funky psychedelia à la Jimi Hendrix, the emotion-evoking tunes establishing themselves with ease.
Frequilibrium’s main goal is to leave their audiences vibrating on a higher plane, which is evident by the soulful lyrics and melodies they deliver. You won’t want to miss them when they roll into your town – the crowd always has just as much fun as they do; trust ’em when they say that’s a lot.
