Catchin Waves: The New Funk

Catchin Waves is an up and coming funk band from Los Angeles, California. This five piece group consists of singer and guitarist James Rudolph, Eli Marcus on bass, Brandon Fields on sax, Cameron Tyler on drums, and Roland Garcia on percussion. The five friends met as music majors while attending Cal State Northridge. Catchin Waves cites their biggest influences as classic R&B and funk groups like Earth, Wind and Fire, Prince, and Michael Jackson. The group’s technical ability and formal training is obvious in every track they play. Catchin Waves hopes to revitalize funk music by providing a unique, upbeat sound that you won’t be able to find in any other modern group.
