Debuting in December of 2015, EJFD has always embraced a DIY attitude and work ethic, self-producing and releasing two EP’s within their first two years as a band. Starting out as a 6-piece band, and quickly adding keyboards, trumpet, and percussion, EJFD has exploded onto the Cincinnati live music scene, selling out venues across the city. Their smooth blend of afrobeat, funk, and jazz has garnered them praise from critics and musicians alike, in a city known more for indie rock, folk, and bluegrass music. Clad in black jumpsuits, donned with all kinds of patches custom to each musician, they resemble a team more than just a collection of guys playing music. Their live shows are usually high-energy, infectious dance parties.
