Supplying sick grooves that put your cerebral on cruise control and your priorities in check, Pour was spawned in Buffalo, Minnesota, and now slides into your cranium where its nothing but obliged to take up a permanent residency. A rock-steady drum kit keeps hard-headed time beneath a fury of funk-esque string smacking and a vocalist who knows exactly what he’s got to say. The five-piece spins out a fusion of 70’s afro-jam, classic rock, and at times, even disco and psychedelica. Lead singer Jon Sullivan proclaims his truths with a deceptively calm, yet undeniably in-control melodic style, while bassist Derek Strand, drummer John Berry, and guitarists Jacob Berry and Max Eichorst are given their ample time in the sun, meaning each and every member of this group gets their chance to shine throughout every piece they perform. On top of all that, Pour is also on the verge of releasing a new full-length album.
A few of the band’s stated influences include The Doors, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Grateful Dead, Frank Zappa, Queens of the Stone Age, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, James Brown, Bootsy Collins, amongst others. Bottom line: these five dudes will hypnotize you into actually enjoying yourself. Go see them. Now.
