Zozo Afrobeat

The Stepkids, HEAVy, Emefe, Pitchblack Brass Band & more to play Brooklyn's Funk Fest (11.28 to 12.01)

For those seeking some warm vibes as we march on towards winter, the guys over at Heard have put together another one of their fun events: Brooklyn's first Funk Fest, for which have been lined up an exciting cast of -mostly local- funk/afrobeat-based acts spread over four days. Where? At Paper Box, Meadow Street. Yup, the one with the hole-in-the-wall taco guy.

Headlining this series of shows - which will kick off on November 28th, ending on December 1st -  are The Stepkids, featured on the cover of The Deli's 2011 CMJ issue, sharing the top of the bill with local soul/r'n'b band HEAVy, and playing alongside Emefe, Zozo Afrobeat, Sophistafunk, Pitchblack Brass Band, Night Of The Living Funk (the names alone are a definite giveaway!) & many more. Full details regarding line-up, tickets etc. can be found on the event's website - stay tuned, as a couple of surprise guests should be announced early next week!
