Funk Vendetta is back with our friends Zoofunkyou, and Wanyama on Friday, January 19th. Soul Candy Music will be kicking off the night as well as providing those dance beats between bands!

Funk Vendetta
Some of the finest musicians from multiple Chicago groups come together and experiment with Progressive Funk the way it should be played...  We mix the sounds of Funk like Parliament, Ohio Players, Zapp & Roger, James Brown, with Prog Rock, R & B, Pop, and Hip Hop to give you a truly NEW sound that will keep you dancing.  Beware, there is a Vendetta against run-of-the-mill music and we plan on fighting it at the front line!

Wanyama is an energizing 5 piece band creating music that entertains the grooves of funk, vibes of reggae, and the elements of hip-hop. With soulful licks and lyrical flow, Wanyama uses live bass, drums, guitar, horns, synths and voice to cultivate their own experimental sound of Conscious Funk For Your Mind! Formed in Cleveland Ohio, Wanyama has a goal to separate themselves from other musicians, delivering a unique fusion of styles often accompanied by freestyle improvisations, making each show different from the last.

Soul Candy Music
Formerly known as Casey Jones, this young producer/DJ creates positive music that makes people dance, let go, and feel alive. Now known as Soul Candy, his new sound explodes with fresh vibes and an absolutely electric sound that incorporates real instruments as well as electronic ones. Soul Candy's music features exciting collaborations with members of bands like Lovejoy, Zoofunkyou, Zaramela, and I Fight Dragons among others. Getting groovy is what this cat does best! Hope you brought your dancing shoes!
