About Horne Electric Band
The Horne Electric Band is an electro-funk group generating a buzz for their infectious beat and whimsical musical personality. Hailing from New York City, they’ve logged over 50 shows in the northeast and several international tours since their inception in 2017, over that time codifying an identifiable band sound.
Horne Electric Band is rooted in the sounds of classic funk, jazz, and soul of the 60’s and 70’s and pushes forward with a modern aesthetic. They integrate current electronics soundscapes with horn-section-centric arrangements and approach the stage with spontaneity and virtuosity to create a band dynamic uniquely their own.
The Horne Electric Band’s instrumental interplay, tightly knit arrangements, inveterate sense of humor, and unrelenting groove culminate in a captivating live experience.
A collaborative outgrowth of vibraphonist Tyler Blanton’s work on the malletkat and midi electronics, the group’s core consists of bassist/producer Massimo Biolcati and drummer Corey Rawls. The steady horn section consists of Wayne Tucker, Yacine Boulares, as well as the Snarky Puppy horn team of Mike Maher and Chris Bullock. The Horne Electric Band’s debut record is scheduled for release on September 27 on Ropeadope and features guest artist appearances by saxophonists Chris Potter, John Ellis, and Donny McCaslin, as well as guitarists Lionel Loueke and John Scofield.
