Sophistafunk – “the unstoppable funk hip hop dance party” 
is BACK in S.F.
Friday, January 25th at the BOOM BOOM ROOM 💥
Dank beats. Heady flows. Vintage tones. Future funk. ✌️👽

Sophistafunk is a unique live music experiment from Syracuse, NY. Funk master Adam Gold plays 4 keyboards at the same time as well as sings & beatboxes. Drummer Emanuel Washington has got the crazy ill pocket & smooth vocals . Sax player Tommy Weeks & lyricist brings the high energy. Seriously fat tones & conscious vibes. This band is unreal. Check out the music video

The band met in 2007 and rapidly evolved into a national-touring live act. Known for their HUGE sound (created by only three members), the band has won over crowds with a captivating stage presence and tight musicianship. Rooted by old-school funk/hip hop, the trio explores electronic dance grooves while infusing each tune with soul and positively charged lyrics. Sophistafunk is a multi-genre tour de force, jam-packed with vintage tones and live instruments.

For six years, this road warrior band has been hitting the pavement and blowing minds across the United States. They’ve collaborated live with greats spanning Bernie Worrell (Parliament/TalkingHeads) to Nikki Glaspie (Beyonce/Dumpstaphunk) and were featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives when Gold’s restaurant and music venue, Funk n’ Waffles, was featured on the show on December 25, 2012. Host, Guy Fieri, dug the band so hard, they’ve since played his birthday party in Santa Rosa, CA and became the first band ever to play the International Home and Housewares Convention inChicago.

Sophistafunk has played high-profile venues including The Blue Note Jazz Club (NYC), The Boom Boom Room (San Francisco), The Belly Up (Aspen), Brooklyn Bowl (NYC) and more and supported acts including Soulive, G. Love, Foreigner, Trombone Shorty, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, EOTO, Marco Benevento and more. They’ve also gained attention from publications including New York City’s Village Voice andBeyond Race Magazine.
