Funk Fest The 12th annual South Broadway Rhythm & Blues, Soul and Funk Festival is a 2 night showcase of 24 bands at the 3 blues row venues. The $12 wristband allows entry to the 3 most music friendly downtown clubs:
Bassel & The Supernaturals combines neo-soul and funk with captivating lyrics about love, loss, and a war in Syria that has affected Bassel Almadani's family along with 10,000,000 others.
The soulful Syrian-American vocalist and his ensemble raised over $11,000 during the preorder campaign for their full-length album, "Elements" (2017), with over $3,000 in donations for humanitarian aid in Syria. Their album was premiered by Noisey (Vice) and led to their involvement in the nationally-acclaimed SXSW showcase ContraBanned: #MusicUnites featuring artists from the diaspora of the countries targeted by the travel ban. They've since been featured on PRI, Al Jazeera, Reuters, Paste Magazine, Huffington Post, NowThis, and many others. In addition to performing in clubs and festivals across the nation, Bassel partners with universities and charity organizations nationwide to host seminars, workshops, and benefit concerts drawing attention to the crisis in Syria.
Deadheads in St. Louis know Jake's Leg. The band has been providing music for the scene for 40 years, playing thousands of shows to generations of like-minded fans who just wanna keep on dancin'. Maybe you've heard them in some dumpy little bar like the old Twenty North or at Busch Stadium: they've played 'em all and continue to do so on a regular basis. And the band keeps growing.
