Night Animals are one of the best kept secrets to emerge from the San Francisco jamband scene. It’s hard to imagine this being the case for much longer as audiences continue to be under their spell. Fusing funk, soul, jazz and rock, they grab you immediately and refuse to let go. Their infectious original material and crowd-pleasing covers veer down unexpected paths. Seductive vocals, serpentine horn lines, hypnotic rhythms and hook-laden guitar licks combine to lead audiences to the promised land. In addition to high caliber musicianiship, their captivating stage presence sets them apart. Trumpeter and vocalist Will Skinner brings the house down again and again with a vocal range that most singers only dream of. Very few people can do justice to Stevie Wonder or Radiohead in the way he can.
