As the ship goes down, we shall RAGE on. For that is our sacred duty.



 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 in its 2017 year-in-review, and are in the process of recording/mixing their debut EP with iconic drummer/producer Alan Evans (of Soulive) at (his) Iron Wax Recording Studio.
