2019 Line-up Announcements in Progress…
Some music cannot be found on a map or within iTunes categories. Some music is so original it seems snatched from the great, invisible substrata that runs below all human activity, a sound aching to be born without a flag or fixed allegiance – free, questing, overflowing with immediate, tangible life. This is the music of Toubab Krewe, the vibrant Asheville, NC-based instrumental powerhouse that creates a sonic Pangaea that lustily swirls together rock, African traditions, jam sensibilities, international folk strains and more. While nearly impossible to put into any box, it takes only a few moments to realize in a very palpable way that one is face-to-face with a true original who recognizes no borders in a march towards a muscular, original, globally switched-on sound.
Live-looping meets House meets Breakbeat meets Electro-Funk meets Drum&Bass meets Trip Hop!
Championing a new and unique sound, After Funk has been bringing their infectiously fun yet thoughtful music to audiences across North America since they formed in 2011. The Toronto based funk, rock and soul family have been touring relentlessly for years and have no plans of slowing down anytime soon. Hailed as “the grooviest band from north of the border”, After Funk has been steadily on the rise. Over the years, the band has amassed a burgeoning, loyal fanbase, played hundreds of shows to thousands of fans, in multiple countries and released 2 albums. With a multitude of new content on the way in 2018, including a new full length album, music videos and their first coast to coast tour, this year will see After Funk as a force to be reckoned with.
