Every time this Oakland octet takes the stage at the Crazy Horse, you can be sure that a serious dance party is about to be ignited. They channel the afrobeat spirit to its core while mixing in heavy doses of afrorock, globally inspired funk, R&B and uplifting soul. The horn section swings with ferocious precision, the rhythms are hypnotic, the vocal range of Sandy James is spine-tingling and the dual guitar action is not something to be taken lightly. Afrofunk Experience lives up to its name and well beyond.
