The Congregation plays a righteous combination of blues, soul and rock & roll. They do it the old-fashioned way, the way Otis Redding, Ike and Tina Turner, Howlin’ Wolf, Aretha Franklin and Bo Diddley did it– real instruments, raw and powerful vocals, down and dirty soul. This female-fronted powerhouse will take you from "aw, shucks" to "Goddamn!", before you know what slapped you in the face. When it comes to the songwriting, you won't find any sugarcoated love songs here, you'll get a little bit of longing and a whole lot of wronging. The Congregation's recently released debut EP, 'Not for Sleepin', showcases their signature style of bluesy garage soul.
