‘The Excitements have provided a straight-to-the-point antidote of full-pelt soul and R&B….attacking their work with a spirit recalling the UK soul circuit circa 1965.’- Mojo
‘In the James Hunter and Sharon Jones territory of the early-mid-60’s R&B and Soul….this is just 100% authentic. What is even more incredible is almost all titles are self-penned, and yet they sound instantly classic. This is easily one of my albums of the year. A beautiful thing indeed.’- Blues& Soul
‘…proof that vibrant old school soul music, played with verve and commitment, still retains bite and relevance…deliver scorching passion plays and primed with rasping sax. EXCELLENT.’ – **** Daily Mirror
The Excitements are a heady cocktail of old school soul and authentic, gritty R&B delivered straight from the hip with a whole lot of style and attitude. Drawing influences from the hall of fame of American R&B, The Excitements write much of the own material, taking the best elements of the 60s’ era soul to create an instantly classic sound. This band’s live performances are a sight to behold. Fronted by vibrant and vivacious lead singer Koko-Jean Davis, of Mozambican descent, with explosive vocals – a mixture of Etta James, Tina Turner and Sharon Jones – The Excitements blend funk guitar riffs with a tight rhythm section of bass and drums with alto and baritone sax. All this delivered with relentless energy and razor sharp musicianship.
