Musical boundaries are something that After Funk is simply not afraid to break. Since its beginnings as a four piece funk experiment, After Funk has steadily grown into an eight member collective that is now known for bringing groovy dance music wherever it goes. Even with its constant evolution, the group has stayed true to its mission of bringing back the good vibes of yesteryear. With roots in London, Hamilton, and Toronto, the group is no stranger to travelling and can be found performing wherever people want to have a good time.
Entering its third year as a group, After Funk has played shows across Ontario and Quebec including opening spots for Lettuce, Snarky Puppy, Dumpstaphunk, Walk off the Earth, The Souljazz Orchestra, Five Alarm Funk, and Boogie Wonder Band. Looking forward, the group's debut self-titled release is set to drop in early 2014. It showcases the band's versatility and their ability to stretch out what you might expect from a "funk band". The listener is transported by Romantic piano cadenzas, King Crimson-esque polyrhythmic motifs and more.
Imperial Brown has been laying down a unique blend of rock, reggae, funk, and jam since their formation in 2012. The members of Imperial Brown are seasoned veterans of the Western New York music scene, with Rob Brocklehurst and Tom Danat hailing from Twin City Kings, and Brad Darrall coming from Aqueous. In 2014, founding member Rob Browning took a step back, paving the way for Kurt Ebsary to take over as the resident piano wizard for IB.
Relying on a strong rhythmic foundation, sonically diverse instrumentation, and driving leads, Imperial Brown brings the heat every show. In early 2014 the band released their debut studio EP "A Little Something" and they are currently in and out of the studio tracking a brand new full-length record. The band draws influence from countless classic bands, such as The Grateful Dead, The Band, The Beatles, Bob Marley, Herbie Hancock, and Stevie Wonder, as well as modern jam gurus Phish, Umphrey's McGee, and moe.
Imperial Brown loves music, and loves playing it even more. Stop by the next Imperial Brown show, and say hi - you won't regret it!
