Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Kung Fu/Jahman Brahman

When: Fri., Nov. 14, 9 p.m. 2014

Spawned from The Breakfast, Deep Banana, and RAQ, Kung Fu wraps up several jam band subgenres into one band. With a basis in funk, these guys often claim “to make fusion cool again.” They make a strong case. Think Headhunters with an Umphrey’s McGee-like twist. Guitarist Tim Palmieri guides the band nimbly through original numbers and awesome covers. Robert Somerville accents everything with fresh tenor sax. This year’s release, Tsar Bomba, moves extremely quickly and pretty much demands that you start dancing immediately. One of the coolest songs on the album, “Snaggle,” lurks from swampy melody to lounge lizard, sax-driven jam. They’ve got a ton of stuff on YouTube and archive.org, so check them out. (Sandy)
