Gig Pick: Harea Band at Babylon—03.02.18

By Greggory Clark on February 27, 2018

Ottawa’s Harea Band has returned with new single “Must Be a Dream” and you can hear the track right now.

The soulful song was produced by Eric Sarafin (Ben Harper, Barenaked Ladies) and features performances by vocalist Alex Harea and his collaborators Mike Giamberardino, Cynthia Tauro, Andrew Ferderber, Harrison Singer and Liam Meagher—a band who produce a deeper, funkier, dancier track every time they hit record.

This rhythm section is funk-fueled, soulful and tight. You can see how true that is by heading to Babylon Nightclub this Friday night when Harea Band take to the stage with support from locals Slack Bridges and Aspects & Jeff DeValk. Chef Leroy from Detroit Soul Food is going to be cooking up delicious and cheap eats all night.

Watch all of “Must Be a Dream” performed in the video below, or find the track on Spotify where previous single “Please Hold” is available along with Harea Band’s All The Hits album and Hip Hip Harea EP.


Harea Band is performing at Babylon Nightclub (317 Bank St) with special guests Slack Bridges, Aspects & Jeff DeValk on March 2, 2018. Doors open at 9pm. Tickets cost $10 online. DJ Breakthru is handling the after party co-presented by Bangers and Mash Soul Music Festival.
