Imagine the orchestral sounds of the past combined with modern talk-box infused funk; songs built from your memories. This is the frequency movement.
The live show frequently moves from 5 to 10 musicians, each bringing a spin on original songs that seem immediately familiar. The musicians are virtuosic and enjoyable to watch interact with each other. The newest record – “Symphonic Funk Box” features 24 live musicians in a room – a funk band plus horns and strings. The cast is world-class. The arrangements are emotive, dark, tense, fun and up-lifting.
“Consistently stellar” (Price, PA Musician Mag), AMFM is a funk-driven movement from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, led by guitarist Andy Mowatt, “an absolute musical genius” (Devoy, Tellus 360) and “jazz-rock flamethrower on guitar” (Gigspots). “Incredible musicians; “they mastered meshing together jazz, jam, rock, funk, soul and blues”…Mowatt’s “bright arrangements keep things sounding fresh” (Kelley, PA Musician), “and yet, through many influences, each tune retains a sound that is distinctly Mowatt’s” (Fly Magazine). “Confident, to-the-point, and elegant” (Rocha, The Flinging Times).
