Brooklyn, NY, 11206
This event is 21 and over
The Post was born during the spring of 2012 in a dark basement in lower Manhattan, and the rest is historical fiction. We are the first hyperanalytical, ultrarevisionist rock band of the modern era. Made of technology and gumption, The Post explores diverse topics such as frogs, liquidity, and Memphis, all within the framework of progressive-psychedelic-funk-folk-blues-pop rock. Best experienced live with a few shakes and a lemon twist.
Ivan and the Parazol
Watermelon is a Funk Rock band stationed in New York City. The band's unique sound is formed from the dynamic interplay of two singers, guitar, keys, and a driving rhythm section, producing a sound that has been called raucous rock 'n' roll with a punch of funk and undertones of hip hop. While the band's spirit can be traced to the revelry and comradery of Sly and the Family Stone, the band does not shy away from such diverse influences as the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Funkadelic, and Talking Heads. Seeking to break down all barriers with the audience, Watermelon lives for the live experience.
Born and raised in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., Kwame Darko embodies diversity in an ever-changing music industry. Fortunate enough to have grown up in an environment that embraces all social and economic walks of life, his passion for music and excellence creates a strong formula for success.
His love for music began at a young age but it wasn't until high school that Kwame and a local following realized his passion was more than just a hobby. After being selected to appear on a Def Jam bound recording compilation several doors opened and Kwame set out to pursue his passion fully.
Kwame's success as an athlete led him to the University of Maryland, where as a member of the school's nationally-acclaimed soccer team, he managed to find a balance between academics, music, and a demanding athletic schedule.
Since moving to New York to further his career, Kwame has performed at renowned venues like The Fillmore, Rock and Roll Hotel, and Music Hall of Williamsburg to name a few in addition to a wide variety of popular clubs and lounges across the country. Having gone on tour and appeared with artists like Big Sean, Wale, Wiz Khalifa, and Sean Paul, Kwame's resume is far from lacking. Beyond the stage, Kwame's eye for talent, songwriting, producing, business savvy, and overall marketability proves his value as an asset at any level in the music industry.
Progress is a collective of musicians who believe in capturing the essence of music. They're an Afro Latin, Funk Jam band that also draws on influences from rock, soul, RnB, and hip-hop.
