Based in Muskegon, right on the shores of Lake Michigan, Flexadecibel is a band born of long friendships and a mutual love for all things groovy. Each member brings a rich musical history and a range of influences, resulting in a sound tied to funk, rock, and soul – but somehow a style all its own.
Formed in the summer of 2015, the band has been making moves around Michigan, expanding into the neighboring states, and tackling the growing summer festival scene. From weddings to breweries, house parties to supporting national acts, FLXDB takes pride in a bangarang live show, unique originals, and eclectic selection of covers.
Major influences stretch from Lettuce and Rage Against The Machine to Ginuwine and Red Hot Chili Peppers. The boys love classic R n’ B, jam bands, chunky metal, jazz standards, and everything in between… And little bits of each tend to emerge in the music. First and foremost, though, it’s gotta have that funk!
Flexadecibel has played Cowpie Music Festival, Beaver Island Music Festival, Halfway 2 Harvest, Michigan Peacefest, Burning Foot Beer Festival, and Off-Season Gathering, as well as venues all across Michigan and Ohio, including Founders Brewing Co., The Intersection, Woodlands Tavern, The Pyramid Scheme, Blind Pig, 20 Monroe Live, and numerous others. They’ve shared bills with Sublime with Rome, Twiddle, Dopapod, The Main Squeeze, Desmond Jones, and countless others. Looking to the future, FLXDB is planning a follow up to Straight Pipes & Sweet Jumps, writing new tunes, traveling to new markets, playing festivals, and visiting a city near you!
