When you gather a group of exceptional, individual artists and mash them together to create one sound it can often be wild and unruly, but also truly explosive and gratifying. Stemming from all over Southern California, "The Higgs" are an eclectic combination of all things improv rock. The bands first self-titled album artfully combines influences ranging from blues to funk to R&B all culminating in an exciting, heavy rock and roll experience. "The Higgs" are first and foremost a live band that produces an overwhelming energy and a new improvisational experience every time they take the stage, making it easy for any music lover to join in on the festive dance party. Their depth of musical exploration is projected through emotional guitar lines, and provocative rhythms. Lyrically, the band all contributes their personal experiences with life, love, loss, and the constant search for purpose and direction.
Individually the band draws their influences from many different genres; all musical styles that contribute to their diverse sound. Because of the vast musical influence that each band member brings to their live experience, the audience is often left with a mixed bag of genres to grab onto. This band truly can appeal to anyone; from an improv rock fan to a soul jazz fan even to a wayward bar-hopper who thought they had no interest in any live band at all. The feeling you get when you witness such pure live music that this band produces, it provides an unforgettable energy that will send even the most jaded music fan home with a smile. The beauty of improvisation, as well as having such a wide array of influences allows "The Higgs" to communicate with many different types of people, and allows the freedom to have a great time in a diverse environment. Music is for everyone, and the band intends to keep it that way.
