The World/Inferno Friendship Society

The World/Inferno Friendship Society

Brooklyn, New York City based band.

The World/Inferno describe themselves best:
"The World/Inferno Friendship Society are a gang, not a band. Coming from all walks of life, numbering well into the double digits and ranging in age from 17 to 33, this is a bunch of boys and girls you might walk across the street to avoid. Almost as much brass as attitude, a full three drummers, that guitar noise the kids enjoy so much, all riding atop a whirling piano. Plus a singer in a shiny green suit. SHINY! Circus music, vaudeville punk, the riot act with a nice swingy beat. It's all there in spades."

Funkrust Brass Band is a twenty-piece brass band founded and led by songwriter, arranger and multi-instrumentalist Phil Andrews (Rude Mechanical Orchestra, Gay Panic, Apocalypse Five & Dime), with lyrics and megaphone vocals by Ellia Bisker (Sweet Soubrette, Charming Disaster). Funkrust was born in a basement in Ridgewood, Queens in November of 2014. Their sound stems from a unique blend of punk, disco, EDM, metal, funk, Balkan brass and New Orleans second line. Featuring snazzy uniforms, choreography, megaphone vocals and all original compositions, they are a sight not to be missed.

Based in Brooklyn, Funkrust has performed across New York City -- in small clubs and big public venues, in parades and at festivals -- to universal acclaim. Outside New York City, Funkrust has performed in Boston, Kingston NY, Trenton NJ, Philadelphia, and Baltimore, and at Mysteryland USA, on the iconic grounds of Woodstock. Funkrust shows have been called "wonderful," "EPIC!" "awesome," and "off the chain, transcendent" by commenters on Facebook.
