The Medicinal Purpose is:

             Chris Ball:  bass, vocals                                           Andrei:  drums, vocals                                       Brother Sal:  guitars, lead vocals                                  

The Medicinal Purpose is a sound and a feeling, born of a singular devotion to create and capture emotions through the blues, soul and rock and roll. The band's three members all hail from northern New Jersey, and have been performing separately and together all over the tri-state area and beyond for all of their adult lives. Bassist Chris Ball and drummer Andrei have shared their musical journey since they first picked up their instruments in grade school, learning and growing together to create an unbreakable, telekinetic rhythm section that exemplifies the fruits of years of togetherness. Brother Sal's vocals are a stark, powerful blend of old soul and blues, only made possible by living the life he sings about- true and heartfelt. Add in the guitar playing, a rhythmically dynamic style somewhere between T-Bone Walker and Jimi Hendrix, and you have a unique, bluesy rock and soul band that sounds fresh and vibrant, breaking uncharted sonic ground with each new endeavor.

The Medicinal Purpose is available for bookings in a variety of situations. In addition to their growing catalog of original material, the band is well-versed in Chicago-style blues, classic rock, soul and psychedelia- including a one-of-a-kind Hendrix show that is as real as it gets. Authentically played by authentic people.
