GET UP WITH THE GET DOWNS began as a band covering mostly golden era JAMES BROWN and have evolved to include classics from other funk artists thrown in for good measure. Think full on high energy funk mixed with garage rock leanings and you’ll begin to understand what they mean by getting down. THE VELCRO LEWIS GROUP return tonight to crash the party for the better and kick out the muthafuckin' jams we've come to known and love. The group is an inner-stellar soul and rock band that is both heavy and danceable, possessing the harmonies of Motown, the groove of Stax, the drugs of HAWKWIND, and the drive of BOHANNON. COSMIC SOUL DJs will feature members of GUWTGD and VELCRO LEWIS GROUP. They're joining forces to spin some of their favorite funk and soul records before and after the show! Bring your dancing apparel - records will be spun till the sun comes up or bar close, whichever comes first.
