Calumet was formed in 2001 by Eric Mobley and Jason Mitchell out of their love for classic funk and soul. Their first album, Retro Energy (2002), staked out a unique sound, and the band was a presence in Phoenix for years, playing shows with Kool & the Gang, Al Green, & George Benson. After a 9 year break, Calumet has been reborn and is once again bringing the funk to Arizona and beyond.
