Jordan Ramirez & The Tribe are a Soul and R&B group from Northeastern Pennsylvania. Melodic instrumentation, sultry vocals, and a deep pocket groove are a constant in the stage performance of this jazz-influenced, funky five-piece.

Merging classic R&B, jazzy hip-hop, and funk rhythms with driving bass lines and a penchant for improv, JR & The Tribe sets its sights on danceable but nuanced grooves that are accessible to any and all fans of music.

Good vibes are quickly tempered with nasty blues funk and a melancholic, singing sax; a groovy, muted bass and drum beat crescendo into a washy and resonant chorus, and back again.
