Have you been looking for something new to listen to, but still want an old-school feel of that sweet ol’ funk? Then you will love the smooth sounds of the “Nu-Sion” band Kung Fu. The band hails from Connecticut and will be headlining at the Brooklyn Bowl this Thursday, May 16th as pre-party to The Big Up Music & Arts Fesitval held this August in Claverack, NY. Although this band has a strong emphasize on funk, this is not your typical funk band. Kung Fu, a quintet of highly-talented musicians, constructed the feel of the legendary genre with some new age sounds to create an electro-band fusion that will have music-lovers craving for more.
This band has been able to create a solid following of fans in the short span of around three years. Kung Fu features guitarist Tim Palmieri, sax player Robert Somerville, keyboardist Todd Stoops, bass guitarist Chris DeAngelis, and drummer Adrian Tramontano. In their short run, they have been able to captivate audiences at national festivals and theaters across the country. People who were able to experience the captivating sounds of Kung Fu described their performance as “explosive” and “jaw dropping,” an accurate description of this innovative quintet.
Experimental musical producer Jeff Bujak is also on the bill for May 16th. His ability to cross genres of music to create a unique experience will be an interesting start to an already great show. Tickets are only $10 and can be purchased through the venue’s website. Doors open at 6pm and the performance starts at 8pm. So if you want to spend a Thursday night exploring the innovative field of new electro-funk, then check out Kung Fu with Jeff Bujak at Brooklyn Bowl.
