The brain child of Tony Sales and Mike Wolf, The Ardent Sons began as a shared love of 60's RnB and Soul by the likes of Joe Tex, Sam and Dave, The Staple Singers and Little Richard. Sales and Wolf recruited local legend Dave Flores and together they found a sound as much rooted in the grind of the MC5 as in the voodoo of Dr. John, a line that connects the legacy of Stax and Muscle Shoals to the blue eyed RnB of the Small Faces and The Box Tops. A fresh sound for fresh people.
