Hailing from the Washington, DC, and Baltimore, Metro areas, Energico is a Jazz-Fusion band with influences ranging from Charlie Parker, Thelonious Monk, Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis to Chick Corea, Kirk Whalum, Yellowjackets and Jeff Lorber. With over 100 years of combined experience, the versatile Energico band is ready to perform for an array of corporate and formal events, such as weddings and festivals, theme-based parties (e.g. the 20s/Great Gatsby/Prohibition, 40s/50s/60s, etc.) as well as performing in hotels and restaurants and skillfully execute studio/session work and songwriting and collaboration.
Initially joining forces in early 2016 for what was to be a one-time performance for a fundraising event, Energico's delightful live show garnered them numerous requests to return and play for additional events and venues. Since then, they have opened for and shared stages with Cindy Bradley,, Chelsey Green, Merlon Devine and comedians Curt Gaskins, Sean Sarvis and Gee Gee Wong to name a few.
Energico plays a dynamic blend of Straight-Ahead/Traditional Jazz, Fusion, Smooth Jazz and Latin/World Jazz all while infusing a well-traveled, international feel. A few of the members are veterans of military bands such as the US Army Band, US Marine Corps & US Navy bands. This immensely talented group of musicians commit to the common values of service, honor, integrity, and duty to both the band and their performances.
Not only is Energico extremely entertaining and engaging, but they are also easy to work with. Their band leader, Michael Herndon, will happily work with you to ensure your complete satisfaction for your special event.
