welcome to the neighborhood

we are the e-block, a five piece band from upstate new york. ​we're into indie r&b -- nobody really knows what it means but we love the classics and we love the new stuff, too, and we try to play like soulquarians and write like they used to do out in laurel canyon. we're big on musicianship, geeks for the liner notes, but above all we're about making stuff that feels good to listen to. 


our band is led by multi-instrumentalist luke pascarella and saxophonist james soren. luke started the band from a garage as a teenager, bringing his neighborhood friends on as bandmates. james joined the group in 2017 after a run-in at suny albany, and from there started bringing his own friends into the fold.


today we work out of james' garage, chopping it up with neighbors new and old. there's drummer dom toma, keyboardist devin tetlak, guitarist anthony 'ace' campoli, bassists aaron ginsburg and joey farber ... you might see them at a show or hear them on a record.

it's a good neighborhood here at the e-block, and it's only growing bigger. in the past year we've built a studio and started producing for new friends, like r&b wizard souly had. there's lots more on the way this year: more live shows, more artist collabs, and new music every month. hope you can join us for the action.
