A big welcome to Little Rock to folks visiting from out of town for the holiday. TONIGHT we’ve got a great night of music lined up with the always-stellar FUNKANITES. Awesome band comprised of some of Little Rock’s finest. Joshua Asante will be spinning records before and after their set. 9pm $10 . . Funkanites are an eight piece Little Rock Arkansas-based Afrobeat, Soul, and Funk ensemble. The lineup features members of other Little Rock bands such as Amasa Hines, Velvet Kente, and Twice Sax to name a few. To say the band is well seasoned is an understatement. They are quite capable of handling any genre thrown at them, however, their focus is heavily on late 60’s and 70’s Afrobeat, Soul, and Funk with a contemporary spin on the genres. Big bombastic horn lines are the norm, as well as an airtight rhythm section that stretches and sews the pocket but never leaves it. Though almost entirely instrumental, some of the members have been known to sing on a traditional Afrobeat tune or two. They are ambassadors of a music that is not so readily available in a live setting in this day and age. They will move you. . . Photo by @joshua_asante
