Why You Should Go: Joey Porter is hosting an ALL-STAR funk throwdown at Cervantes’ this Saturday. The members of Juno What?! will be in attendance (Porter, Watts, Swatkins) as well as The Motet’s Garrett Sayers and Ryan Jalbert. As if that weren’t enough, other featured guests this night include Nigel Hall (Scofield, Warren Haynes, Soulive, Lettuce) and The Shady Horns from Soulive and Lettuce. Come RAGE with the nastiest pickup funk band you may ever see!
As if that wasn’t enough, Monophonics will be opening the evening. Over the past seven years, these guys have staked their claim as one of California’s premier bands. Raised amid the Bay Area’s rich musical culture, Monophonics has proudly carried on the tradition of music native to their hometown, which flourished during the birth of psychedelia. Formed in 2005; originally an instrumental ensemble comprised of guitarist Ian McDonald, bassist Myles O’Mahony, saxophonist Alex Baky, trumpeter Ryan Scott, and drummer Austin Bohlman, the band has recently added the dynamic soul vocals of keyboardist Kelly Finnigan. The result is a psychedelic soul & heavy funk sound, which harks back to the styling of the late 60′s and early 70′s, all while keeping its feet planted in the present.
