Actuació dels The Excitements a Pop Ràpid amb la cançó 'Let's Kiss & Make Up' del seu disc que porta el mateix nom que ells (Penniman Records, 2010).

Para quienes todavía no conozcan a The Excitements, acaso su mejor tarjeta de presentación sea decir que lo suyo es rhythm and blues pero que, a su vez, no renuncia al soul de los primeros sesenta. Estas son las coordenadas musicales a las que juega esta banda cuya base de operaciones está en Barcelona.
Lo mejor del legado musical de la música negra del siglo pasado está sintetizado en esta formación que lidera Koko Jean Davis, natural de Mozambique. Atentos también a su poderosa sección de vientos, que te trasladará a finales de los 50 e inicios de los 60. Acordarse, mientras los escuchas, de Etta James, Ike y Tina Turner o de la primera época de James Brown es también inevitable, como lo demuestra su LP de debut, 'The Excitements' (Penniman Records, 2010).

In the beginning of 2010, and in such an uncommon place for their soulful passion as Barcelona (Spain), The Excitements have come crashing out the gate delivering a Rhythm and Blues breed of music with a Soul and Rock edge, completely unseen in stages nowadays.
Influenced by the finest black music of the preceeding century, its rhythm section delivers tight backbone, and is complemented by a horn section in the late 50's and early 60's tradition, all of it fronted by the powerful howl of Koko Jean Davis. And so, the Mozambique-born Soul Sister adds her ferocious whirlwind of power and energy, pushing the band towards a territory in which having a good time, dancing and shouting is all that matters.
Etta James, Ike and Tina, early James Brown or Sugar Pie de Santo are only a few names you should expect as the basis to the Excitements' stay-true-to-the-roots sound, which, at this time, you can find on a string of scorching 45s preceeding their inminent LP debut, all of it released on Barcelona's Penniman Records, one of the most important R&B and old school Soul labels around the globe.
So put on your dancin' shoes and join to the groove and energy show of The Excitements, very soon hittin' YOUR town!
