Walsher Clemons – ‘Dancing & Praying’ (album stream) (premiere)

The young Chicago band add some welcome funk to their jam band music.

Chicago’s Walsher Clemons is a jam band that know not just how to lock into a strong instrumental groove, but one that knows how to create a groove that actually moves. Described as a combination of Michael Jackson and Phish (with a little Steely Dan tossed in as well) this is sunny, Bonnaroo-friendly music that demands its listeners dance to their irresistible funk beats.

Their debut album Dancing & Prayingis out today, and can be heard in its entirety below. “We love to get people going, and this album does just that,’ the band says succinctly. “It’s a smooth ride from start to finish with stops all around the musical spectrum.”
