Hartley’s Encore is a funk/soul band from Albany, NY. Their mission: making music that’s equal parts soundtrack to your Saturday night and bacon for your Sunday brunch. Frequently FUNKY—and always soulful—H.E. is the house band at your dance party for the apocalypse. They have shared the stage with such greats as Eric Krasno (of Soulive/Lettuce), were recently selected as a “[Band] You Should Know,” by NYSMusic.com in its 2017 year-in-review, and on April 20, 2018, released their self-titled debut record (EP), recorded and mixed by iconic drummer/producer Alan Evans (of Soulive) at (his) Iron Wax Recording Studio. The record is now available on Spotify, iTunes, and all major digital platforms, as well as in CD format at the next Hartley’s Encore show near you.
