"Take one Italian guitarist active in the Downtown Improvisation and New Music scene - combine with youthful influences of movie music and Spaghetti Westerns - mix well with a love of '60s Surf Sound (think The Ventures, Beach Boys, etc.) bathed in reverb - anchor with a solid rhythm section of bass and drums.. and you get the Italian Surf Academy! Certainly the baddest bad Morricone you've ever heard - as well as themes from other '60s Italian soundtrack stalwarts such as Piero Umiliani, Riz Ortolani, Carlo Rustichelli, Armando Trovajoli, and Luis Enriquez Bacalov!...."

images/2014/12/705.jpg
www.soundcloud.com/thefunkof40kyears
The Funk of Forty Thousand Years started in August 2007 in Michigan. The core mission is to deliver live organic funk and soul to the masses. As the band sound matured, sprinkles of jazz improvisation started to percolate and are now a permanent fixture. Yasin Jackson has been writing and singing for many years and pounced on the opportunity to join the band. Her voice has been compared to Carole King, Erykah Badu and others. Her lyrics and vocal scats provide plenty of food for thought. Bassist Michael P. Jackson is the main composer and brought the band together. He started playing music at the age of 8, learning clarinet. Through the years he has learned many instruments including alto, tenor, and berry sax. At age 19 a date with a bass would change things forever. The Funk of Forty Thousand Years features one of the hottest rhythm sections on the scene today.

I was captivated by music at an early age. I grew up with parents who embraced classic rock from the 1960s and '70s. It didn't take long for me to become infatuated with the era's most popular artists. Recordings of Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin and The Allman Brothers Band were intermingled in my record collection with artists from my own generation. There was no denying that despite the influence of classic rock which I had inherited as a youth, I would always be a ready audience for a good pop song.

images/2015/04/10859.jpg
www.facebook.com/AmsterdamLost
Self-taught pianist, music maker and verbophile. After having composed numerous scores for film and theater, Adaam James has produced two and a half albums (in a span of two years), of his own original songs. He is currently working on a third, while performing live with his RETIRED CON ARTIST troupe. Slyly, his (at times dangerously addictive) music veers from the delicate to the explosive, and his lyrics from the fragile to the acerbic. But through it all - the albums, the texts, the clips - runs a single thread that tells the story of one, quirky, magically real world. Adaam James is a grad-student of History and Journalism and often writes for the Jerusalem Post and PoSham magazine. He's currently web-editor for Haaretz.com. Not an easy-going person at the best of times, he's notably zealous about coffee and irony.

Ric Molina was born and raised in NYC, the child of Colombian parents. His father is a painter and his mother studied classical voice in Medellin. Ric began playing the cuatro at the age of four and moved on to the guitar when he was six years old. His father was his main musical influence playing classical, pop, blues, and world music recordings while he painted in his studio. Molina absorbed these musical influences picking out the melodies on the guitar. His connection to the guitar has always been a primary endeavor and as a result Ric has worked for most of his adult life from the age of twelve to the present as a guitarist in every professional setting that presented itself. He continues to this day as the guitarist for book one of the smash broadway musical WICKED in addition to having composed the underscore music for three seasons of THE ELECTRIC COMPANY for PBS as well as the cartoon PRANKSTER PLANET also for PBS. The Ric Molina Group is the continuation of a long friendship with Fima Ephron that began in 1988 with the release of CURRENT EVENTS (VERVE FORECAST) and through various recordings and musical associations. Fima Ephron is the producer of @DREAMLAND, a project that grew out of many conversations while Molina and Ephron were working with other artists. Matt Wolf made this dream a reality by executive producing the project for his GUTSHOT MEDIA company that exists to compel and bring forth the best in contemporary art, music and media. This fruitful collaboration is evolving and points to a future of excellence in artistic expression serving a global desire for humanism, peace and beauty.

Upon first hearing New Pony it's understandable that most assume the band is made up of a group of transplants from New Orleans. The way these guys can tear into some vintage New Orleans funk leaves little doubt that they've got some bayou water in their soul. But the truth is that New Pony is home-grown from Philadelphia not New Orleans. Still, the overall impression from listening to these guys will make you swear they grew up playing in the dark and greasy dive bars of the crescent city. Philly may be bookended by the Delaware and Schuykill rivers, but it's the big muddy Mississippi and the dark waters of the bayou that flows through the heart and soul of this band.

10pm-12am: Balls Deep - Funk

2012 was the year when the deadly trio of Space G, Frankie Winston, and Dr. D-vo D-bag Slim came together to beat the hell out of the college underground, funk the unfunky funk, and turn up the volume with a distinctive brand of east coast funk. They set about building a sound rooted in the likes of early 70s Frank Zappa, Fishbone, Earth Wind and Fire, Jimi Hendrix, Late 60s Miles Davis, Fela Kuti, ATCQ, James Brown, 90s West Coast Hip-hop, Betty Davis, Black Sabbath, J Dilla, and of course Parliament Funkadelic. This amalgam of supersonic heaviness has resulted in audience in the Northeast US being titillated, gyrated, and having their undies turned into underwater super-mario levels by their tour-de-force of Nasty, Nasty, Funk. - See more at: http://www.ballsdeepinfunk.com/about/#sthash.KVOmEJMn.dpuf
