Post-Funk pioneers Ladies Drink Free have recently been making a name for themselves throughout the east coast. From their consistent, unforgettable live performances, the group has been able to generate a true grassroots following since their 2012 inception. This fan-based momentum, along with their 2013 Sit Down, Doggy EP, propelled them into a string of notable performances including Webster Hall, the Great South Bay Music Festival, two East coast tours and bills with several notable acts such as Turkuaz, Consider the Source, and Earphunk.
Between November and December of 2016, Ladies Drink Free expanded their following in new territory, touring the Eastern United States from Burlington to New Orleans. Prior to this, the band was able to raise over $3,000 through online crowd funding towards the completion of their first LP simply titled Ladies Drink Free. This record captures the versatility of the band's collective style as well as the individual prowess of each member. With the debut album under their belts, the band is currently in the studio working on their newest single, to be released just in time for Summer, 2017.
When asked to describe the band's sound, drummer Robby Deitz considers it a musical gumbo - a blend of gritty funk, modern pop, sultry R&B, arena rock, and world rhythms that creates a bold sound laced with subtle nuances. This has made the group able to strike mainstream appeal while exploring new ideas through genre-pushing compositions and improvisation. Their desire to break new musical ground in writing and live performance has led the band to identify their eclectic sound as Post-Funk.
Armed with a passion for their craft, a clear vision for their future, and a disciplined approach to self-management and promotion, Ladies Drink Free continues to gain notoriety as a massive musical force that can deliver in any situation.
