Groove, move, and feel the bass at Montreal’s first(?) Funk Soul festival. If slap bass, booty, and deep beats are your thing, this is a not miss. If brass and swing with a solid beat get you shakin’ your bacon, this is a not miss.
Playing at the festival are The Liquor Store, a groovy brass band with a jazzy, horn-focused feel.
Clay and Friends is a mixture of hip hop and soul with whatever they happen to encounter in a free form way. Aydell comes in with beat box,
Static Gold is a mix of funk and swing, led by the sultry voice of Zaya Solange.
