Press Info

“Perhaps one of the finest alt-indie bands around today, Flavor’s main ingredient is rock solid groove, vocals and harmonies that ring true to pitch and tone, and production that leaves me believing someone is watching out for these boys… Flavor is one seriously dialed in outfit … easily destined to play to those whose idea of perfection is the quality of bands like Red Hot Chili Peppers or Stevie Wonder…

…I’ve been told that the Minneapolis / St. Paul music is not what it used to be, that it’s "dried up" a bit … shhhhhhh … don’t tell Flavor that … we need the new sound of their Minneapolis funky rock. I’ll echo what many others in the press have already stated … this is one brilliant indie band.” ~ Chris K. Pro Critic Radio

"Minnesota four get funky (somewhere between Dave Mathews and the Chili Peppers) while keeping the pop-rock propulsion on track. Singer/guitarist Wade Linkert has good looks and gives a soulful and rangey voice to his originals, one of which snagge

Bio

FLAVOR has been fighting to spread their fresh brand of funky pop-rock & roll since their first studio album, recorded in 2001. The ensuing years would bring much touring, many accolades, and quite a bit more music.
