Kung Fu Holla’ween Masquerade
As the nights become cooler and the days become shorter, most of us are starting to prepare for a night of ghoulish laughs, costumes and a night out on the town. This year, Kung Fu is teaming up with Twiddle and Kloptoscope to bring you the funkiest Halloween you’ll ever experience. On October 31, 2013, jazz-funk rockers Kung Fu are bringing the most electric party to the Gramercy Theater in New York City.
With Tim Palmieri on guitar, Robert Somerville on the tenor sax, Chris DeAngelis on bass guitar, Adrian Tramontano on percussion and Todd Stoops on keys, this quintet of artists has been paving the way for funk-fusion for quite some time now. The band’s fall tour is just starting to pick up and one stop you won’t want to miss is their Halloween show in New York City. What really sets them apart is their ability to mix 70’s funk fusion with modern electronic dance, which engenders a truly unique dance experience [some may even call it extreme funk].
The Vermont based band Twiddle will also join Kung Fu on Halloween at the Gramercy Theater. Twiddle encompasses jam, funk and reggae all in one while maintaining complex arrangements of jazz, classical and bluegrass. If you haven’t had the opportunity to see them live, now is your chance. Also from Vermont, electronic rockers Kloptoscope will open the show to get the party started. Having shared the stage before with Kung Fu, the vast collection of sounds will surely make for an excellent dance party.
Doors open at 7:00pm… “Do the right thing” and get your tickets here!
