Planet Earth have been called soul, funk, acid jazz, R&B, power funk and so on. But whatever you want to call them, they are sure to make you move. Touted as one of the vanguards of funk revival, they have been playing the Toronto club scene since 1999 and now boast three releases of original material out on the band-owned label Sleeping Eddie Music (20 MILES FROM BUFFALO -2008, THE ALI SHUFFLE-1999, and ELASTICITY-2001).

In recent years, PE have made appearances as an opening act for Maceo Parker, K-OS, Maestro, and Joey DeFrancesco. Three sold-out Soul in the City concerts, Toronto International Film festival cast parties (1998 and 1999) at Skydome for Dreamworks), Beaches jazz festival appearances (1998-2004), charity events, and a six year running thursday night slot at famed Toronto nightclub The Orbit Room. PE recently had six of their original songs chosen for two feature films: “Fall” (starring Michael Madsen) and “Silver Man” (starring fellow Canadian Eugene Levy). Both records, produced by the band, have received excellent reviews and sold well as independent releases.
