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

Although the ensemble cast enjoys a seasoned pedigree that reads like a late-night summer festival all-star jam, this fledgling "nu-sion" project is growing a unique and rabid following by commanding audiences at theaters, clubs, and major national festivals since 2012.

Kung Fu features Tim Palmieri (guitar & vocals), Robert Somerville (tenor sax & vocals), Beau Sasser (keyboards & vocals), Chris DeAngelis (bass guitar & vocals), and Adrian Tramontano (drums/percussion). The powerhouse quintet's live show has been described by critics and fans alike as "lethal funk", "explosive", "jaw dropping", and "musically mesmerizing". For the uninitiated, the experience is typically shocking yet the focus is simple: just sit back and enjoy the ride!
The Jive Tribe
The Jive Tribe
Boulder's premier Funk, Soul, Rock N' Roll band, The Jive Tribe is a band that embodies the spirit, vibe, and attitude of Colorado's colorful culture. By taking inspiration from a wide variety of different artists and genres, The Jive Tribe has managed to craft a sound and style that is entirely their own. Different musical backgrounds, training and performance styles have given the band a unique musical diversity and the ability to combine genres such as Funk, Psychedelic Rock, Soul, and Blues. While the musical diversity is remarkable and exciting, the most important and fundamental part of The Jive Tribe is that we hope to create a place where all different kinds of people can come together and forget about the stressful world around us and enjoy a common love for music and dancing together.
