Formed in early 2009 the Happen-Ins are not the mythical lovechild of the Blues and R&B but instead enthusiastic torch carriers of the sound. Comprised of former members of the Dedringers, Sean Faires and John Michael Schoepf with Lomita frontman Ricky Ray Jackson and joined later by Harlem Spiritual Orchestra Drummer, Falcon Valdez its no surprise that the Happen-Ins offer up a sound that blurs the lines between classic taste and youthful filth.
Brimming with infectious melodies, bacon greased guitars and sweaty hip shaking swagger the Happen-Ins Self Titled Debut comes short on neither tender nor spank. This collection is a veritable mobile house party of analog gems.
