Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Uptowne Buddha/SassafraZ/After Funk

When: Wed., May 28, 9 p.m. 2014

Hailing from Toronto, After Funk is diving into their first U.S. tour dates right now. Tonight, they arrive in Cleveland. With a strong debut EP now under their belts (mixed and mastered by Soulive’s Alan Evans), the band is ready to really ramp up their commitment to the craft. The past few years, they’ve been honing their chops on their home turf; as they head out into the wider world, they’re sure to mingle well with bands of a similar ilk (Snarky Puppy, to some degree, even). Yanick Allwood has this sort of incredibly apt funk voice, which complements After Funk’s horns and slinky guitar lines nicely. A free download of their EP is available on their website,, so do check that out. They’re the openers on tonight’s bill that features Uptowne Buddha and SassafraZ. (Sandy)
