The Candymakers are a Rock N’ Soul band with the traditions of old-school R&B and,funk. This young band offers a sound that is contemporary, yet keeps the essence of music past. Though the band is known for its soulful male vocalist, it is anchored by the collaborative genius of its blues driven guitarist and funky rhythm section. Often joined by a rotating cast of horn players and vocalists, the band can be seen with up to 12 members on stage. 

After forming in 2010, they were awarded 1st place in the 2011 Iowa Blues Challenge. After reaching the semi-finals in both The International Blues Challenge and The Kings of Beale Street Competition, they returned home to release their debut album in February of 2012. Their second studio effort “Ridiculicious” was released in September of 2014.
