The Funk Nasty Get Down
Sat - June 22nd - Crowbar - Tampa, FL - $8
Funk, Soul, Hip-hop
Starting in 2008, Green Sunshine has become an all out party revolution; taking the southeast by storm. Fronted by MC's Reason and Rhyme, and the powerful, sultry vocals of Miss Motown Tea, Green Sunshine has put its own spin on what it means to be a performing Hip-Hop/ Funk band.
Green Sunshine is the quintessential late-night party band. The coordination of the musicians is something you can not only hear, but feel, as you find yourself inexplicably drawn to the center of the dance floor. with a funky groove that can neither be quantized nor quantified; you will find yourself drawn back, time and time again, to bask in the Green Sunshine.
Mob Towne Revival
Blues, Hip-hop, Funk
Swelling with Gulf Coast pride, Mob Towne Revival hails from Mobile, Alabama. The city’s central location along the Third Coast comes through in the music. The band has played in support of such acts as Trombone Shorty, Laura Reed, John Popper, and for hip-hop artists like Gift of Gab, Nappy Roots, and Bone Thugs-n-Harmony. MTR combines the sultriness of humid Delta blues, the vibe of hip-hop lyricists, the soul of the New Orleans’ funk scene, and the wild festivities of a Mardi Gras parade. The sound is big. The grooves are contagious & you will be shaking and baking when we hit the stage. MTR has rocked crowds across the Gulf Coast consistently and earned spots in a number of regional festivals. It’s Revival time!!!!
