Kicking off 2018

We’re finally bringing our friends ESSO Afrojam Funkbeat up from Chicago to introduce them to our audience here in Madison, and who better to spin tunes throughout the night than the DJ who introduced us to them, Bumbac Joe! This is going to be a fun night, but the venue is small and will likely sell out, so be sure to arrive a little early! RSVP on Facebook

¡ESSO! (El Sonido Sonic Octopus) performs Afro-Latin and roots rock inspired dance music. Described by critics as tropical funk or cumbiaton, the ethnically diverse crew of musicians, lead by guitarist/producer Armando Pérez, establish driving polyrhythmic beats while combining swirling wah guitar, deep bass, brass horns, group singing, and urban poetry all in a raw eclectic mix of energetic sound. All members bring a potent and vital musical contribution to the band’s unique “afrojam funkbeat” distinction. Inspired by Chicago’s storied soulful blues, legendary jazzy house, and global fusion heavy-hitters, the group deliver their performances with purpose and verve; unifying listeners through music, dance, and collaborative spirit. *Awarded “Best New Band” and “Best International/World Music Act” in 2016 (Chicago Reader)

Bumbac Joe, is a Chicago based DJ/producer whose beats and grooves summon listeners into the fire of Latin American dance.
