Biography

Barcelona, Spain (2010 – present)

In early 2010, the sonic whirlwind known as The Excitements emerged in Barcelona, Spain, delivering its Rhythm ‘n’ Blues and Soul cocktail, old school style, and astounding audiences over their country and, shortly after, Europe.

Since then, the band founded by Adrià Gual (rhythm guitar) and Daniel Segura (bass) has brought their powerful set to a huge number of macro-festivals such as Coleur Café (Belgium) and Les nuits Secretes (France) , jazz festivals such as San Sebastian’s Jazzaldia (Spain), Nancy, Lille (France) or Liege (Belgium), and a wide amount of specialized festivals, such as Funtastic Dracula Carnival, Purple Weekend or Beat Goes On (Spain), while also heavily working the club circuits over the Netherlands, Italy, Switzerland, Germany and the UK, among others.

The band is strongly influenced by the best afroamerican music from the past century, bypassing the modern soul-funk trends and focusing on old school soul sounds. It is formed by the explosive lead vocals of Koko-Jean Davis; the scorching 6 strings of Lalo Lopez on lead guitar and Adrià Gual on rhythm guitar; the thundering rhythm section driven by Alfonso Luna (drums) and Daniel Segura (bass); and last but not least, the soulful sounds of Nico Rodríguez Jauregui on baritone sax and Marc Lloret on alto sax. Its rhythm section builds an ultra-tight bedrock, perfectly complemented by its saxophones, following the early sixties tradition.
