70’s Funk-Fusion Meets a Modern Dance Party
8:00pm til 11:55pm, Thu Jun 20 @ Liv Nightclub, 2001 11th St NW, Washington, DC 20001
Proud to be firmly installed in 2012’s 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, Weather Report, Return To Forever and Mahavishnu Orchestra, and merges those ideas with a contemporary EDM informed sensibility. The ensemble, a seasoned pedigree that reads like a latenight summer festival all-star jam, is currently touring in support of their eponymous debut album. 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: ENTER THE DRAGON!
