It’s funk, it’s afrobeat, it’s soul, it’s much more than that! It’s the fucking Budos!
The very talented THE BUDOS BAND turns old into new. If you’re familiar with apotheotic ’70s funk, or afrobeat, or with burning psychedelic keyboards and Ethiopian sax, then you’re gonna “recognize” this New York band.
Aware that it is not easy to coordinate nine members, the band utilizes a disciplined and intelligent approach. Instead of long, heavy songs, they create ecstasy by maintaining cohesive arrangements featuring clean, sharp and brief solos. All instruments have their chance to shine.
Along on this tour with Budos is the ELECTRIC CITIZEN from Ohio, bringing an interesting mix of psychedelic rock and folk metal all based around a strong female vocal.
Downstairs @ Middle East tonight is definitely one of the best ways to get warm and forget the winter. Heat is what you’re gonna get with sounds that burn from the inside out. So you better be there to feel it!
