Best Music Poll Results Are In


Wednesday night, the good folks over at Asylum hosted the Portland Music Awards where the winners of the Portland Phoenix’s 2013 Best Music Poll were announced. In a field of really good bands that made up the Best R&B / Soul / Funk Act category… we, unfortunately, did not win. So first off, congratulations go out to local institution Sly-Chi for their win – we’re very happy for such a talented group of musicians. Also, lots of love to the other nominees – it was great just to stand shoulder to shoulder with y’all.

Most of all, thanks to all of YOU – the people who voted for us and are the reason we made it into the poll in the first place. It’s our pleasure to play for you and we love you all – even the ones who get a little too friendly at the end of the night. It’s okay, excessive amounts of alcohol will do that. It’s folks like you who are the reason we could come in second in what was a very loaded group of bands – that’s absolutely huge for us and we’re thrilled.

Y’all are un-funkin-believable.

Funky Friday In Naples

Rain got ya down? Cheer up Funkonauts! Funky Friday is heading your way as the Boomshack hits the road to Naples, Maine this week and another good time at Bray’s Brew Pub.┬áNever been to Bray’s? For shame! Located right on Route 302, it’s a cozy pub in an old Victorian bursting at the seams with good eats and craft beers on tap. Oh yeah, and lots and lots of music to boot.

Now that James has returned from his leisurely tour of Europe, Asia, and the sub-continent, he’s ready to get funky like a bowlegged monkey. Sam returns to the mothership after siding it up with Tom Gallant at Asylum last weekend. The band is back together people… and ready to play.

We drop the beat at 9:30 pm and keep rolling until half past midnight. Never a cover and always a good time – come check us out!
