*FUNK REVIVAL ORCHESTRA (F.R.O.)*
Horn-driven harmonies and classic grooves take center stage at the Boom Boom Room on Friday Night Funk Revival Orchestra (F.R.O.) takes San Francisco by storm.
A ten-piece ensemble featuring a full horn section, slamming rhythm section and sizzling-hot vocals, the Funk Revival Orchestra's name is self-explanatory as they breathe new life into rare cuts from the 70's- tracks that have been sampled numerous times but never fully done justice until now.
*MARK SEXTON BAND*
Since 2006, The Mark Sexton Band has led the way in further innovating the sound of Soul & Reggae. The depth and body of the groups work stems from their deep understanding of music and the message that it bears. The Mark Sexton Band flexes a significant message in their music: pure emotion and love. This group takes pride in the production of their sound leaving no room for artificial feeling or contrived songwriting. After hearing “Listen Out”, it’s clear The Mark Sexton Band doesn’t think twice when it comes to writing from the heart. Ignoring short-lived musical trends, the sounds from this group move on to see something more meaningful. Three full tours across the entire West Coast spoke volumes about the bands musicianship and dedication to spreading their music and message. The success from their travels let the music speak for itself to all who witnessed their performances. Seeing albums find new homes at every show has pushed this dynamic group to new heights. With the bands potential hardly even tapped, this is truly a group you do not want to lose sight of.
