With the solid blues base of Ernesto’s solo material as a jumping point, the crew formed a six track EP Spirit Parade (EP) which was released in 2015. This work was recognized by Baltimore blues legend, Ursula Ricks, who immediately recognized the band’s musicianship and asked to be a part of it. Spirit Parade featured Ursula on some of its higher profile gigs for a brief period before continuing on its own course. In continued pursuit of sonic excellence, Spirit Parade returned to the studio to create a collection of ten songs for their first full length record Worlds Apart. Blending together the diverse influences of each member, the band has established a sound all their own that is at once familiar and novel.
Past contributors to Spirit Parade include Steve Gallagher (Guitar), Mathew Lampart (Drums), Mark St. Pierre (Percussion), Gary Gilpin (Organ), Ryan Escolopio (Production), Kirn Dangerus (Guitar), and Ony Vega (Vocals)
