Both a beefy, bluesy, rock-and-soul bar band and a hand-clapping, guitar-strumming folk-rock band are at the core of MARAH, which formed in Philadelphia in the early 1990s and resettled in Brooklyn. Although Marah got started in the heyday of grunge, the band reaches back to the same roots as Bruce Springsteen does. At times Marah can sound like Elvis Costello leading the E Street Band. Says Uncut, "Marah blow the roof off with their barely contained energy. It’s street music, soul music, music to walk off a skyscraper to ... you’re left with your hair standing on end, shaken up, exhilarated, that hole in your heart temporarily fixed, which is all you can ask of great rock ‘n’ roll. And God knows, this is great rock ‘n’ roll." With Detroit's own ARCH MYSTICS, Samantha from Outrageous Cherry and friends.
