ABOUT THE BAND

Born from the ghosts of ancient Hawaiian warriors, you can feel the rhythm, pulsing in the distance as the Night Marcher wards off evil spirits. Though it may blur in and out of reality, this is not an illusion.

In the late-nineties, static clogged the radio waves and Rob Reinfurt drifted from music. As the crowd poured out into the streets after a late night rock show, he was handed a Horde Tour Compilation CD and one track resonated like no other.

It is no coincidence that “Night Marchers” was the first tune that songwriter Rob Reinfurt heard from the avant-groove band, Medeski, Martin and Wood; a band that has been influential in the way he approaches music.

Fast forward ten years. Selfish wandering and social promiscuity was taking it’s toll and Reinfurt got knocked out. It was clear that passionless pursuits had no place in his life. He battled with the law and himself. The angst summoned songs and they came in droves: Rock songs, fuzz, reminiscent of the ones which rattled his teenage years. His first creative pursuit, The Weekenders, became his outlet for this expression.

As the grip loosened, the music which greeted him started to morph, becoming more psychedelic, musky and soulful.
