Early Show! The Funktronics



Venue:Early Show! The Funktronics


The Funktronics will be making their return to Bossa, bringing a fresh interpretation of classic grooves and recent jams, all done in a tasteful fashion yet guaranteed to please the brain as well as the booty (to paraphrase Michael League).

Much in the vein of Cory Henry, the quartet enjoys taking funk and jazz tunes from the past and giving their current spin on them – or sometimes a classic reinterpretation of a modern hit works as well.

Veterans of just about every area of music in the District, the combination of Evan Samuels (guitar), John Yuan (keys), Nima Ghovanlu (bass), and Kenny Powell (drums) have over 40 combined years of playing in clubs such as Blues Alley, Twins, Chief Ike’s, and others, playing with or opening for such greats as Gil Scott Heron, Jean Carne, Gerald Heyman, Jimmy Ponder, and Spyro Gyra.

Cost: $5 at the door
