Rebranding

Describing themselves as a Rhythm and Blues group may be somewhat misleading, it would be more apt to say they are "Americana," a fusion of Blues/Rockabilly/Country/Rock and Jazz. Finns Music is reminiscent of a time when the audience toe tapped, clicking fingers, playing ghost guitars while listening, and got up and danced seemingly drawn by some unseen force, their bodies transported into movement. Blending a mix of covers with unique originals, Finn becomes more of an experience to be had rather than a Band to be listened to.
