It’s not too often that you find us bringing the mothership out of the garage on a Sunday… so when we do, you know it’s for a good reason…
This Sunday, our friends OC & The Offbeats are celebrating the release of their brand spankin’ new CD and they were kind enough to ask us to get the night started. So go ahead and keep that Sunday best on after you finish gettin’ right and then slide on down to One Longfellow Square to catch one of the best 1-2 punches in Portland.
Doors open at 7pm, we get things rolling at 8pm, and then we hand it over to folks of the hour for the rest of the night. Tickets are available online in advance or at the door. Don’t miss out on some prime Monday morning watercooler fodder – be there.
Funkonauts, it’s a beautiful day made even more beautifuler* by some kind words from Aimsel Ponti on her Face The Music blog at MaineToday.com. Dig it…
My current favorite on the nine-song collection of original tunes is “Love Somebody.” With electric guitar, a mess of horns and awesome backup vocals from Brundage, the song gets it done both musically and lyrically. Regoulinsky will have you singing along before the song is over. “You gotta love somebody/You gotta love somebody/You gotta love somebody if we all want to get along.”
I also dig the slower groove “Nothing More to Say” with the sensational Brundage on lead vocals over a bed of horns: “Walking ’round lonely streets while the sun goes down/comfort in the silence of this dead-end town.”
Head on over and give the whole post a peep! The article will also be published in the Maine Today Magazine section of Thursday’s Portland Press Herald.
Still on the fence about heading out to the show Saturday night? Get off the fence and get on the good foot! Tickets are only $10 in advance and available online right now – you can still get tickets at the door for $12 the night of the show. Essence is going to get the night rolling with sick beats and lyrics at 8pm and then we tear the roof off around 9pm. Still haven’t got tickets? GO!
If you’re not in the area and want to grab a copy of the new album, you have some options… The album is currently available in CD form at Bull Moose locations (Portland, Scarborough, South Portland, and Lewiston) as well as through their website. Listeners can visit our Bandcamp page to download the album in various lossless formats or purchase downloads through iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and other online stores.
* Huh, spellcheck actually says that beautifuler is a word. Who woulda thunk it?
Funkonauts, we’ve got an exciting couple of weeks ahead of us… We head up to Mine Oyster in Boothbay Harbor, ME for a funky Saturday night on June 21st. After that, we have our album release party at One Longfellow Square in Portland, ME with special guest Essence on Saturday July 5th.
However, you don’t have to wait until then to grab your copy of Speed Of Soul! For those inclined towards a digital download, visit our Bandcamp page and get your copy in a variety of file formats, including high-quality lossless formats. We’re also on iTunes (which is pretty cool no matter how you slice it) and will soon be available on other online stores as well. If you want a CD, head on over to a Bull Moose location in Portland, Scarborough, South Portland, or Lewiston and pick one up off the shelf – if you’re not near any of those stores, you can order a CD through their online store. We’ll also have CDs for sale at all of our shows as well.
Thanks again for all your support – we owe each and every one of you a sweaty hug after a show!
Funkonauts, bust out your party pants and boogie shoes because it’s time to celebrate with a hometown throwdown!
We’re celebrating the release of our first album with a full-on rager at One Longfellow Square in Portland on Saturday July 5th and everyone is invited. Tickets are $10 in advance or $12 day of show – you can grab yours now through One Longfellow Square’s website. Be sure to get your tickets soon because you don’t want to miss this.
Opening up the night, we’re excited to have special guest Essence. Trust us, you don’t want to sleep on this – the lady’s got skills and an album that just came out last fall. After that, it’s full-on original funky soul with us. We’re working to bring in some special guests you might recognize from the past few years – stay tuned for more details.
Of course, we’ll have copies of Speed Of Soul there for sale, but you might be able to grab a copy even earlier – more news on when the album will hit stores and the interwebs in the near future!
Grab your tickets, tell us you’re coming via the Facebook event, and share it with all your friends. Ya dig?
