Orgōne (Or-gōne). Noun. 1. A universal life force. 2. A cosmic unit of energy, the creative force in nature. 3. A soul music juggernaut with 8 heads and one heart.
Now and always, Orgōne delivers dirty, organic, California soul with heart; music that grabs you by the collar, pulls you to your feet and shoves you wantingly onto the dance floor. It all started with two kids from the San Fernando Valley, whose shared affinity for gritty soul records of the 60s and 70s collided with the colorful music cultures brewing in Los Angeles during the late ’90s. That friendship sparked a movement, and Orgōne has been delivering nothing but gold to the funk faithful ever since.
“We intend our music to have an inhibition-canceling effect,” founding guitarist Sergio Rios explains. “It speaks to those who may have wallflower tendencies encouraging everyone to own the freakiness that lives inside them, and enjoy the spotlight for a little while. Sometimes it takes a nudge to let go and get on the dance floor. And sometimes it takes a big ‘ol push… a love shove, if you will. And we’re well versed in those.”
Fearless vocalist Adryon de León elevates the octets soulfulness to intoxicating new levels on Orgone’s latest studio album, Beyond The Sun. Dubbed “stank face inducing glory” by Okayplayer, the record is a lightning rod of inspiration for a new generation of funk music lovers. Orgone’s upcoming studio release, Reasons, featuring Adryon de León, drops the this fall.
MCNASTY BRASS BAND

The outcome of this fusion is hard-hitting dance music and high-energy live shows. Each player works tirelessly outside McNasty Brass Band as a sideman, some with national and international touring acts.
