The Darners are an original rhythm & blues-rock outfit from the Twin Cities. Drawing upon their diverse influences from past (Son House, The Beatles, the Stax/Motown sound, Black Sabbath) and present (Umphrey's McGee, Band of Skulls, Tame Impala, The Roots), The Darners utilize their unique musical credentials to create an innovative sound while maintaining a familiar feel.
Each Darner contributes a unique but instantly familiar character to the band's ethos. Guitarist Jake blazes an unapologetic path of soulful all-American blues, sharing lead crooner duties with bassist John who fortifies the ensemble with a tonality reminiscent of the British Invasion. Robb provides his intuitive and metronomic chops to the mix, creating a miles-deep pocket for the music to comfortably groove in.
The Darners are a group of hard-working musicians dedicated to sharing their love of blues, soul, and rock & roll with a whole new generation. They're pretty darn happy to have your support.
