Electric Church is a 5 piece funk/soul/blues band that grew in popularity quickly as audiences were moved by not only the blues, but the intermingling of funk bass, back beats and soulful vocals. In the Fall of 2012, Electric Church began as Jake Galenski (EC Drummer, lead for Wise Medicine) was inspired by the Evan Laedke’s blues foundation. Evan, a young winner in the 2011 WNY Blues Society Memphis competition, brought not only the blues to Jake’s funky contemporary back beats but his melodic vocals and keys were the ying to the deep R&B vocals of Alan “Gus” Gregory’s yang. Together with Bert’s funky bass lines laying foundation for the clean, guitar riffs and solos of Pat Harrington, Electric Church has been building fans and packing houses throughout WNY. Electric Church spans time as the group stretches the limits of music and greets its audiences with refreshing foundations in the blues charged with funk and soul.
