Event Archive - Canada's Afro-Beat Jazz/Funk Juggernauts!: Mr. Something Something, Corwin Fox

Thu. July 27th 2006 9:30pm - 1am doors at 9pm Central Bar & Grill (No Minors) 9:30pm - 1am doors at 9pm
$9 advance
This is going to be an awesome show! If you dig Anti Balas Afro Beat Orchestra you're going to dig this band hands down. The music of Mr. Something Something ranges from afro-beat to jazz to funk and much more. The tunes are both energetic but chill at the same time - great for dancing or listening.

Western instruments and concepts of improvisation are explored and layered over what used to be called afrobeat; but the term strains to contain the innovations happening in the rhythm section at every show. It also fails to express in fiery-enough terms the contributions of notable and electrifying vocalist/performance artist Johan Hultqvist. Breaks and basslines are designed to induce and sustain a state of ecstatic dancing. The horn section strikes with power and uplifts with melody. And above it all, acting as a lightning rod for the combined energies of a Mr. Something Something event, is the lyric statement of the case for change and consciousness. And dance.

Tickets will be $9 advance @ Lyle's Place and Central Bar & Grill


PEACE!
