“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 Observe

“Ya’ll made my day!” - George Clinton (Parliament Funkadelic)
