Eufórquestra (pronounced yoo-FOHR-keh-struh, think euphoria+orchestra) is energy and
rhythm personified. An ever-evolving sound that has been influenced by music from all
over the world with an emphasis on funk, pocket and groove. For over a decade the band
has been igniting dance floors across the country, blending the roots of funk, soul,
afrobeat, reggae and dub to create a sound that “explodes, dances and melts in your ear
with sheer bliss” (Chris M. Slawecki; AllAboutJazz.com).

Eufórquestra’s fifth full-length record, FIRE, was produced by Kyle Hollingsworth (of
The String Cheese Incident) and captures the passion and musical maturing of these road
warriors. Over the course of 14 tracks, the band takes you on an hour-long adventure that
will touch your heart and mind, and keep your fingers and toes tapping. A handful of
special guests, including Elliot Martin (John Brown’s Body), Gabriel Mervine and Kim
Dawson (The Motet) and Mr. Hollingsworth himself, put their own touches on the band’s
already cohesive sound that is “tight and engineered to a fine, funky precision.” (Jeremy
Frazier; Chicago Jam Scene) The result is a record that is distinctly modern, maintaining
one foot in the future and firmly planting in the musical roots traditions of the past.

With almost 1,000 shows under their belt, Eufórquestra shows no sign of stopping. A
perpetually heavy tour schedule keeps the band and fans happy, as performing live in
front of an audience has always been the band’s top priority. As noted in a live show
review by Grateful Web, “...the boys seem to play like the apocalypse will happen at any
second and they want to die doing what they do best...”
