Savi and his band have been developing a funk reggae sound that has been pushing the envelope to the masses since 2004. SFB has grown from a forceful power trio to a large power house including guests on keys and sax. The music can be described as Soulful, Rootsy, with a large dab of Funk! The music provides a dance party atmosphere with uplifting lyrics and positivity. This year alone (2013) they have toured Costa Rica, Virgin Islands, plus major festivals in the states. Look out for them in City/Country/Island near you!

An evening of Reggae featuring local band Elation and returning band Treehouse who played at the Tribute to Sublime Reggae Festival last June. Savi Fernandez band headlines this showcase.

The Savi Fernandez Band had a light touch of reggae wrapped in constructive lyrics, and it wasn’t too long before Roosevelt from The Lee Boys jumped on stage and sat in with his new custom pedal steel guitar."

With a past show at The Social in June that had a great turnout and a recent tour of the Virgin Islands under the belt, the Savi Fernandez Band is no stranger to crowds and performing onstage. This show turned it up a notch with several guest musicians that helped add to their island sound.
Finally taking the stage at a late hour, just late enough to build suspense, the Savi Fernandez Band came out to put on a high-energy filled show. The usual suspects were onstage, Savi Fernandez on guitar, Joey Lanna on drums and Chris McMullen on bass. Some outstanding musicians from Orlando joined the stage, including Dave Mann of funkUs, Christan Ryan, Clay Watson of the Legendary JCs and Terry Slingbaum on electric mandolin. With a stellar lineup like this the show could be nothing but awesome.
The show brought a clear message which was certainly appropriate with the New Year two weeks away. A message of positivity, truth, power and opportunity was delivered to the audience who received it openly while dancing enthusiastically. Finally closing the show with “We Got The Power”, the crowd joined in with the chorus chanting “we got the power, we’re gonna make it” and make it, they did.
There are no upcoming dates at this time.
