The Oblations are a two-man Blues/Funk/Rock band from the triangle area of North Carolina. Joe MacPhail’s setup is comprised of drums and keyboard, which he performs on simultaneously with all four limbs. Daniel Fields plays slide and electric guitars with a host of a effects pedals, including customized pickups that allow him to perform bass and guitar at the same time. They both sing. As a two-piece, they reproduce the sound of a quartet or quintet while entirely avoiding the use of pre-recorded tracks or loops. This unique setup expands the boundaries of live instrumental performance through a combination of modern technology, physicality, and musicality. With over a decade of experience playing together in various projects, The Oblations share a unique musical telepathy, and invite you to join them on a funky, textural, and personal journey informed by the last century of of American music. Their live shows are a unique mix of song-craft, groove, and deft improvisations. The Oblations pride themselves on meeting the needs of any environment, and for any audience.
