Was born in early 2005, when a collective of SF Bay Area musical veterans came together under the vision of creating high-energy music with a conscious attitude. That vision has materialized into The Flux, a top-notch 5 piece act with the unmitigated audacity and tasty grooves that are necessary to packs rooms from wall to wall. Blending roots rock, West African rhythms, and powerful vocals, The Flux has created a sound that is unique and infectious, as evidenced by their ever-growing base of fans.
Band founder Joe Balestreri brings to the group his strong lead vocals and sublime guitar style, developed with St. Louis-based jamband Torque and recent stints with Zigaboo Modeliste, R&D, Albino!, and Brown Baggin. Along with formal composition studies, solo live looping performances (as MetaMan), and countless other projects, it all adds up to a lifelong commitment to rocking the house.
