Funk The Halls: The Funk Hunters, Pigeon Hole, Astrocolor (DJ Set), Mt. Doyle

Sat. December 10th 8:00pm Sugar (No Minors) 8:00pm (Multiple Dates)

But words can't do justice to two friends whose passion is dance floor mastery – breathless audiences at global festivals including Wakarusa, Burning Man, Rhythm & Vines, Shambhala, Electric Forest, and Envision are the ultimate testament.

The Funk Hunters' reverence for the roots of dance has also lead them into unique live collaborations, sometimes drawing on a cast of supporting musicians to add dimension to their signature sound. Most recently they toured North America with iconic rapper Chali 2na of Jurassic 5, who has called them "the selectah's of the century!"

Based in Vancouver BC, Nick Middleton and Duncan Smith define the west coast bass sound and elevate it with their stunning custom-curated visuals and animated stage presence.
