Biography

Sweet Comfort Band was a Christian rock band who were active from the mid-1970s until 1984.

The band consisted of Bryan Duncan, Randy Thomas, Rick Thomson and Kevin Thomson.

Sweet Comfort released their self-titled first album on Maranatha! Records in 1977. Their sound was a mix of jazzy, funky rock that was quite a bit different from most bands in Contemporary Christian music industry who were primarily performing folk-rock and soft rock. Few bands had the musicianship displayed by this quartet.

Adding ‘Band’ to their name, they moved from Maranatha! to Light Records for their second release Breakin’ The Ice which was produced by Bob Wilson of the jazz-funk band Seawind. Wilson used the famed Seawind horns to augment many of the songs.

Over the course of the next four albums the bands sound became more mainstream. Their final album was produced by Dino Elefante, brother of the Kansas singer John Elefante, who were both members of Mastedon.

Sweet Comfort Band disbanded in 1984. Bryan Duncan went solo and continues to release albums until the present time. Randy Thomas went on to found the band Allies and has released a solo Christmas album.

    I remember seeing SCB in concert in Lakeland Florida back in ..? 1982 or '83 with opening act, James Vincent. I have been to many concerts before and after that, including Paul McCartney, U2, Sting, and others. Still, this has to rank up there as one of the top 3 or 4. SCB was simply an amazing band.
