Kung Fu
Kung Fu
In the vanguard of the new-funk movement, KUNG FU is quickly popularizing their unique sonic contribution “NU-SION”, blurring the line between intense electro-fusion, and blistering dance arrangements. Making funk fusion music “cool” again, the band draws on influences such as early Headhunters, Weather Report, & Mahavishnu Orchestra, and merges those ideas with technical fireworks and a contemporary EDM informed sensibility. The ensemble, a seasoned pedigree that reads like a late-night summer festival all-star jam has been described by critics and fans of Galactic & Umphrey’s McGee alike as “lethal funk”, “explosive”, “jaw dropping”, and “musically mesmerizing”. For the uninitiated, the experience is typically shocking yet the focus is simple: ENTER THE DRAGON!

Kung Fu features Tim Palmieri on guitar (The Breakfast), Robert Somerville on tenor sax (Deep Banana Blackout), Beau Sasser on Keyboards (Alan Evans Trio, Ryan Montbleau, The Z3, Beau Sasser’s Escape Plan), Christopher DeAngelis on bass guitar (The Breakfast) and Adrian Tramontano on drums/percussion (The Breakfast).
The Royal Noise
The Royal Noise
Founded in 2010 by guitarist Johan Harvey and saxophonist/keyboardist Mike LaBombard, The Royal Noise is a relentless funk dance party. They draw on influences from the great funk masters like Herbie Hancock and Parliament Funkadelic as well as modern music like Umphrey’s McGee and Lotus.

Since then, they have performed consistently across the East Coast from northern NY & VT down to south FL. Once on the road, the line up was given a breath of fresh air with Rodrigo Pichardo (bass) Aaron Zarrow (drums) and Dan Kaplowitz (guitar). On a night to night basis you’re guaranteed a different show with constant experimenting and improvising over heavy grooves, catchy melodies, and instrumental prowess.

Simon Eddie of Home Grown Music Network stated, “One of the best live funk acts to emerge from the East Coast in a long while.”
