PREVIEW: Kung Fu, The Fabulous Party Boys, n8 & friends (ft. members of Polyrhythmics)
Words By Coleman Schwartz
Kung Fu is a New England funk quintet that has gained a reputation for jaw-dropping live sets. Fans know to expect a ridiculous dance-party to follow wherever they may tour, and this upcoming Saturday (January 30) evening in Seattle is certain to be no exception. Fremont’s incomparable Nectar Lounge will play host to this bombastic, extravagant performance.
The band features Tim Palmieri (guitar), Robert Somerville (tenor saxophone), Beau Sasser (keyboards), Chris DeAngelis (bass guitar) and Adrian Tramontano (drums and percussion). While each member is well-schooled in the classics of the funk genre, they are also highly skilled jazz musicians. These influences are fused with modern electronica sensibilities to create a live show that truly has something to offer to fans of all styles.
The band has only performed once before in Seattle, in support of funk-legends Galactic. This will be their first headlining gig here, and it is not one to miss. They can be counted on to bring a high energy performance, so the only other thing they need is for you to attend the show! Come see what all of your Northeastern friends have been talking about!
Additionally, n8 and Friends will be opening up the show. Nathan Spicer, keyboardist of the Polyrhythmics, has assembled a surprise lineup of Seattle musicians to commemorate this special occasion. After seeing enough Polyrhythmics shows, I have full trust in this man’s ability to put something together that will prepare the crowd to get down for Kung Fu!
