AFROMASSIVE and DUDE BRO MAN
LIVE at the REEF (Boise, ID)
AFROMASSIVE is the hottest new experimental fury of afrobeat/funk-inspired and electronically fueled grooves this side of the Mississippi. Founded in Humboldt County, and based in the Bay Area, It’s a collective of like-minded musicians looking to cultivate something uniquely different in our current diverse music scene. AFROMASSIVE features members of Bay-Area afrobeat cohorts, ALBINO! (albinoband.com), and NorCal electro- funk outfit, MooGot2 (www.moogot2.com), as well as various other Northern California music communities.. Inspired by today’s yearning for electronic music, heavy bass, and experimental sounds, while deeply rooted in funk, and 70’s soul and jazz, AFROMASSIVE uses their knowledge of Afro-Cuban and West African rhythm to put their unique, up-to-date spin on the Afrobeat music made famous by Fela Kuti. They are on a mission to turn on your brain and make you GET DOWN! After the successful release of their first EP, “Gridlock” in 2009 (available here: www.cdbaby.com/afromassive), They are releasing a Live Compilation this February and recording there next coming studio Album @ Prairie Sun Studios, to be released in Spring. After years of packed houses in Humboldt County, AFROMASSIVE has taken the unique driving sound to audiences all over California, opening for such bands Lettuce and Toubab Krewe, and tearing up the late night vibes at such festivals as The Gaia Festival, etc. The crowd reactions are increasing elated and ecstatic for this ensemble’s powerful music, so don’t miss your chance to experience the in-your-face sound of AFROMASSIVE!
