Los Angeles band Orgone is dedicated to heavy, raw, adrenaline-fueled funk and sweat-dripping soul. With a core rhythm section of close friends and self-taught musicians steeped in local DJ culture, Orgone has spent the last decade expanding their roster and evolving a sound rooted in old school respect but pulsing with the force of the new millennium (Photo: © Erik Kabik / www.erikkabik.com)

Touring almost non-stop since the release of Cali Fever, including 288 shows in 2011 alone, Orgone has evolved into an incendiary live act, both as a headliner or opening for artists including the Roots, Al Green, Gil Scott-Heron, Rebelution, Galactic, Ozomatli, Snoop Dogg, Thievery Corporation, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, Groundation, and Aaron Neville. Whether playing a club show or slots at national festivals like Bonnaroo, All Good, New Orleans JazzFest, High Sierra, Bear Creek, SXSW, moe.down, Mountain Jam, Waterfront Blues Festival, Jam Cruise 10 and many others, Orgone is a live funk juggernaut that can do it all, weaving seamlessly between gut- bucket nastiness, afrobeat, disco/house, and classic covers, creating a sweaty, dynamic dance experience.

With their critical success and tight, touring chops, Orgone has become one of the most sought- after backing bands for studio sessions. The band has flourished in the studio, appearing on the 2011 multiple Grammy winning Cee Lo Green track, “Fool For Love” and major recordings by Alicia Keys (“Teenage Love Affair, “Wreckless Love”), Estelle (“Pretty Please”), Big Chief Monk Boudreaux, and Anthony Hamilton. Orgone’s musicians have also collectively and individually toured and played with Booker T Jones, The Pharcyde, Breakestra, Keb Mo, Plantlife, Macy Grey, Pharoahe Monch, Too Short, Brett Dennan, Slick Rick, and Bun B.
