CEG Presents Funk Fest
Big Village Little City, Zestrove , Brooklyn Funk Collective
Big Village Little City is a brass-driven hip-hop funk band based out of Brooklyn, New York. Commanding a high energy fusion of funk, jazz, soul, and hip-hop, BVLC is dedicated to creating an experience of release through rhythm and movement. With a combination of hard-hitting New Orleans-style brass, virtuosic rap, and jazz-influenced vocals, BVLC's lyrics draw attention to the human condition as the sound entices the body into the euphoria of dance.
A trove of zest could be described as a valuable collection of strong, pleasant, and somewhat spicy flavor. Zestrove is a five piece band from Long Island, New York. Stylistically, the band blends elements of funk, soul, jazz and rock to create a unique listening experience for their audiences at live shows and in the studio. The band features Alex Kamm (Keys, Organ, Vocals), Andrew Pomerantz (Bass), Logan Whaley (Guitar, Vocals), Michael Fera (Drums, Percussion), and Nicholas Fera (Guitar, Percussion, Vocals).
Brooklyn Funk Collective is a uniquely-diverse Funk band. Drawing upon various influences: Funk, Jazz-fusion, Hard-edged Rock, and rich R&B vocal harmonies, BFC blends these disparate genres into its own, signature style. Literally, something for everyone, but with rump-shaking, heavily-syncopated Funk at its core.
