Orgone
Orgone
Orgone (Or­gōne). Noun. 1. A universal life force. 2. A cosmic unit of energy. 3. The creative force in nature.

Now and always, Orgone delivers dirty, organic, California soul with heart; music that grabs you by the collar, pulls you to your feel and shoves you wantingly onto the dance floor. It all started with two kids from the San Fernando Valley, whose shared affinity for gritty soul records of the
60s and 70s collided with the colorful music cultures brewing in Los Angeles during the late 90s. That friendship sparked a movement, and Orgone has been delivering nothing but gold to the funk faithful ever since.

“We intend our music to have an inhibition­canceling effect,” founding guitarist Sergio Rios explains. “It speaks to those who may have wallflower tendencies ­­ encouraging everyone to own the freakiness that lives inside them, and enjoy the spotlight for a little while. Sometimes it takes a nudge to let go and get on the dance floor. And sometimes it takes a big 'ol push... a love shove, if you will. And we're well versed in those."

Fearless vocalist Adryon de León elevates the octet’s soulfulness to intoxicating new levels on Orgone's latest studio album, Beyond The Sun. Dubbed "stank face inducing glory" by Okayplayer, the record is a lightning rod of inspiration for a new generation of funk music lovers. Following the stand­alone release of “Do What You Came To Do”, Orgone plans to drip steamy new singles one­by­one into the world throughout the summer of 2016.
The Pamlico Sound
The Pamlico Sound
The Pamlico Sound play authentic, high-energy big band funk in an updated reading of the classic styles of greats like Sly and the Family Stone and Parliament Funkadelic. The interweaving lead vocals of Ghana Queen (LaSha Afarko) and the Reverend EverReady (Will Baumgartner) are laid over a hard-grooving rhythm section and ornamented by the notorious Soul Shouters Horns (Baumgartner, Maus Nomdeguerre, Paul Stadler, and Alice Hansen). With lyrics reminiscent of the intelligence, humor and social consciousness of their legendary influences and a relentlessly upbeat drive to their musical arrangements, the group lifts listeners’ spirits into a rarefied atmosphere. Based in Boulder Colorado, TPS have been driving fans onto the dance floor and happily out of their minds for a half-decade, and show no intention of slowing down. In late 2016, the band released their EP “Jive Church”, which has been getting airplay on local stations such as KGNU and The Colorado Sound. Also in the past year, TPS has shared shows with such great local and national/international acts as Euforquestra, Analog Son, Orgone, and Seun Kuti & Egypt 80; won the 2016 Bolder Boulder Battle of the Bands; and performed live on the radio at KGNU, KBCO and Radio 1190. As stated in Marquee Magazine, “TPS bring the funk wherever they perform. Experiencing their unavoidable dance scene firsthand is a must.” And as the Reverend EverReady says in their audience-interactive “Jive Church” theatrical experience, “The Funk will Set You Free!”
