We are the effinays


The Effinays is a funk/rock/reggae/Latin rhythms band from Dallas, TX. The band formed in 2007 and originally performed as an instrumental unit throughout the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. In 2011, the band revamped the entire line up, except for one of the founding members and morphed in to the comedic, old school funk, classic rock, reggae with flashes of Latin grooves band that one could clearly sense that they enjoy what they do.The band has performed alongside Grammy Award winning artist such as Snoop Dogg (Lion), Grupo Fantasma and Ozomatli . Each member of The Effinays hails from different musical upbringings that they blend together effortlessly as one unit.

“With the current state of the local music scene on a slow incline, it is often hard to find traction on such unsure ground. It is also hard to make a name for yourself in a over-saturated market. But, Dallas up and comers, The Effinays, are doing just that.” – The Urban Advocate

“Doused in funk and served hot with a side of reggae, The Effinays host "Funk Mondays" at Sundown at Granada each week, washing away your workweek blues with the six-piece band's unique blend of jammy reggae and hip-hop-infused funk.” - Dallas Observer

“That Latin flare fits in somewhere with their funky brand of dance hall-style reggae, complete with a brass section.“ – White Rock Lake Weekly

“Ya’ll made my day!” – George Clinton
