Featured in the book ’Jam Bands: North America’s Hottest Live Groups’, Post Junction brings together funk, jazz, soul, and rock with an emphasis on improvisation. Influences include George Clinton and Parliament/Funkadelic, Sly and the Family Stone, Jerry Garcia Band, Frank Zappa, and Miles Davis. 2006 saw Post Junction jamming with funk legends George Clinton and Bernie Worrell, inspiring the band to reach for new levels of the funk. 2007 saw Jon Fadem sitting in with George Clinton & Parliament/Funkadelic, and Robert Randolph & The Family Band, and performing with George Porter Jr. from The Meters, Steve Kimock, and Robert Walter of The Greyboy Allstars. Over the past few years, the band’s following has continued to grow, and their original repertoire has expanded dramatically. In 2006, they won Lehigh University’s Battle of the Bands, and they were nominated for nine 2007 Lehigh Valley Music Awards, including best original band, best jam band, most entertaining band, best female vocalist, best guitarist, and best drummer. 2008 and 2009 saw the band performing a series of gigs where they were joined by legendary Parliament/Funkadelic keyboardist, Talking Heads member, and Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame member Bernie Worrell!

"Post Junction is a promising funk/groove band... has a musically smart sound that veers on the more rock side of jazz/funk/groove fusions. It also boasts...more focused songs for this genre, which could give it an edge. A prime example is "Time For Some Answers" with its rhythmic undertow and funky lead guitar work. Other highlights are the alluring instrumental grooves of "Vibe," which aptly lives up to its title and the soulful tones of "Stare Into the Hole." --Mick Skidmore, Relix Magazine
