Joe Hertler & The Rainbow Seekers Release The Dancefloor Ready Single “What I Want”

October 1, 2022 BY Jason Currell

Today, the genre-bending collective Joe Hertler & the Rainbow Seekers release the impossibly groovy funk-soul single, “What I Want.” This song is primed for the dancefloor as the tasty organ lick gets things going right from the rip. With an anthemic chorus, call-and-response verses, four-on-the-floor beats, and a mind-blowing flute solo what more you do you need to get your groove on? Listen to “What I Want” on all digital retailers (here).

“‘What I Want’ is a reminder to appreciate the moment,” explains Joe. “People focus on goals and forget to smell the roses. They try to find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow (the pot of gold does not exist), when the real treasure is in appreciating the rainbow itself.”

The Rainbow Seekers are also excited to hit the road with new Fall 2022 tour dates alongside their friends and kindred spirits Próxima Parada. Tickets are on sale now! Find the full list below and visit for more details.

Joe Hertler & The Rainbow Seekers will make a sprightly young groove doctor out of anyone. With spectacular energy pulsating from every member of the band, the Rainbow Seekers could illuminate the very chambers of Heaven. Lead singer Joe Hertler splashes through lyrical puddles of golden rain, leaving his audience wearing flowery crowns and bubbling smiles. A ride on the Rainbow will take you across the mountains of Motown, through the fjords of folk, over the archipelagos of Americana, and-at last-into a funky firth, where only the fiercest of friendships can be found. Their quest has brought them across the nation and upon such noble gatherings as Bonnaroo, Electric Forest, and Summer Camp. “The live show is the purpose of the band. This is why we make music. Playing music is a symbiotic process, the crowd is as much a part of it as the musicians. We give as much energy and love as we can and we can feel that coming from the crowd as well” says Hertler. “We believe that performance is not a High Art operation, and that you should do anything you can to ensure that the crowd is having a good time. From piñatas to confetti, to fog, to flowers, to drum solos, to strobe lights, to Thor, to sword battles-literally anything goes.” Join them in their celebration, and they will take you on a never-ending journey to a place you’ll never be able to describe in words.
