Afrofunk Experience

Afrofunk Experience brings its world of groove to the Freight!

These purveyors of original Afrobeat, Reggae and Funk music are dance floor veterans, with current and former members of Spearhead, Afrolicious, Katdelic and Broun Fellinis among them. They’ll get you moving with their funky rhythms, draw you in with their soulful singing, and carry you away with their spirit-filled solos. They’ve appeared on UnderCover’s Graceland tribute and released a scintillating album, Never Be the Same.

Guitarist/Singer David James (Spearhead, The Coup, Beth Custer) brings his sinewy style to counter the funk-metal stylings of lead guitarist Ken House (H.P. Riot). The precise funk-rock drumming of Paul Oliphant (Will Magid, Funky Miracle) with Wendell Rand’s (Afrolicious, Youssoupha Sidibe) muscular dance grooves keep the band tight, while saxophonist David Boyce (Broun Fellinis, Supplicants) and trombonist Alan Williams (Manicato, Katdelic) wail, their horns producing a sound that encompasses outward-bound jazz, classic reggae, afrobeat and R&B.  Percussionist Brandon Lee thickens and adds flavor to the mix, and on top of all this, Sandy House adds her sultry voice and powerful stage presence.

The dance floor will be open, so get ready for the full Afrofunk Experience tonight at the Freight!
