Who is Oscar Jordan & The Mighty Sons of Hercules?
Oscar Jordan & The Mighty Sons of Hercules is a funkified blues rock band fusing elements of 70ís funk, blues, rock and soul to create a unique musical vision. Their diverse influences include Jimi Hendrix, Sly & The Family Stone, Stevie Wonder, Prince and the best of Chicago blues.
Their live shows are always in the moment and they never play the same song the same way twice. Heavy on the party vibe, showmanship and improvisation, the band seamlessly blends hip blues standards, popular funk classics, original funk-rock compositions and over the top guitar playing. Soulful vocals and harmonies is the glue that holds it all together.
Following on the heels of Oscar Jordanís critically acclaimed 2001 debut Mister Bad Luck, his second release Eclectic Soul in 2003 garnered even more success.
"Oscar Jordan offers a triumphant second album that brims with the varied influences of soul, funk, gospel, Latin rock, and even psychedelia... a guitar wailer in the classic sense... sincere, heartfelt and lovely... Jordan's one to watch."
-Blues Revue Magazine
"A heartfelt ode to the redemptive power of music... A 70's style meld of rock-tinged funk and and neo-psychedelic organ/fretboard interplay, with dollops of pop romanticism... Irony-rich... Harmony-rich... Jubilantly danceable... Inventive lyric juxtapositions... Tough enough for street cred and sufficiently boho-literate to please the hipsters.
