Kung Fu With Special Guest Shokazoba
at The Colonial Theatre
Thursday, September 26 at 8pm
Tickets: $25

KUNG FU
Proud to be firmly installed in the new-funk movement, Kung Fu is quickly popularizing their unique contribution, blurring the line between intense electro-fusion, and blistering dance arrangements. The band draws on influences such as The Headhunters and Weather Report, and merges those ideas with a contemporary EDM informed sensibility: Imagine ’70s funk-fusion meets a modern dance party!

Since 2012, this seasoned ensemble has grown a unique and enthusiastic following by commanding audiences at theaters, clubs and major national festivals. The powerhouse quintet’s live show has been described by critics and fans alike as “lethal funk,” “explosive,” “jaw dropping” and “musically mesmerizing.”

Kung Fu features: Tim Palmieri (guitar and vocals), Robert Somerville (tenor sax and vocals), Beau Sasser (keyboards and vocals), Chris DeAngelis (bass guitar and vocals) and Adrian Tramontano (drums and percussion).

SHOKAZOBA
Voted “Best of the Valley” five times, nominated for “Live Act of the Year” by the New England Music Awards, winner of the 2017 Valley Music Showcase, and recognized with several honorable distinctions by the African Jazz Review, Shokazoba performs top quality, high energy music designed to move your feet, inspire the mind and activate the soul. Originally a Fela Kuti tribute project, Shokazoba is a nine-piece funk band, whose original work aims to inspire greater human awareness through conscious funky jazz and progressive topical lyrics.

Pre-show entertainment: Mike McMann
at The Garage at 6:30pm
