The 25th Hour Band

The 25th Hour Band


The 25th Hour Band makes music for the shear joy of it. As the years increase so does the quality of the musicianship. They’re a source of great music and great times throughtout D.C., VA, and MD. Their delightfully tasty tunes ranging from blues and soul / funk to classic rock and jazz.


The 25th Hour Band is an ideal inspired by the magical time, the climactic last set of a smooth, powerful, soulful band, between midnight and 1:00am or so, when the music is cookin' and the good times are flowing---the audience can't get enough and the revelry and dancing prevails 'til the last encore fades away! For 16 years the band has been faithful to the concept of making music for the shear joy and therapeutic value of it, and as the years have increased so has the quality of musicianship...improving, like wine, with age. The 25th Hour Band has been a source of great music and great times throughout the Southern Maryland, D.C., Annapolis, Baltimore, and Northern Virginia music scene! With the harmonic ingredients of Carol's, Chuckie's, and Charley's vocals...mixed with the phenomenal musicianship of Jack, Al, George, Charlie and's a recipe that always results in delightfully tasty tunes ranging from blues, soul / funk, jazz, classic rock, motown--all with a soulfulness that can be felt in the air when the music is playing! The 25th Hour Band is not devoted to any one "type" of music--the musicianship is stellar, and enables top-notch achievement of many different types of music.
