Raleigh, NC, 27601
Doors 9:00 PM / Show 10:00 PM
A sound forged in the streets of the Capital City; Featuring Matt Grady on bass and lead vocals, Devin Rauson on Saxophone, Barrett Certoma on drums, and Chris Macon on guitar and vocals. At home in both neo-soul and rock oriented venues alike, these boys have been plugging away at their hometown of Raleigh, NC for a couple of years and are now ready to release their first album. Intelligent yet danceable, proficient but soulful, polished and gritty. Outside Soul has something that anybody can dig.
Funkuponya, a quartet based out of Raleigh, North Carolina was formed by a chance meeting off Craigslist in the spring of 2008. Featuring Doug Carter on guitar, Brian Werner on keys, Leo Kishore on bass, and Carl Blackwell on drums, the band strives to create ear catching melodies mixed with heated improvised jams, resulting in a rhythmic experience that keeps the body moving. Polished guitar mingles with stratospheric keyboards to keep the audience on their toes. All the while, the no-nonsense rhythm section keeps the music honest and forward-moving. These are the new guys on the Southeast funk and jam scene.
