THE VERSE MEETS FUNK*FEVER

 

The Verse

DJs: Suiki Slide Martin Star Bite*Size Buddha + Sammy Slazenger – Live on the Drums

Brace yourselves for a full-on funkification, as live gets live-er!  Beijing live funk heavyweight’s The Verse meet up with those all-the-way-live Funk*Fever cats for an entire night of fat funk, ample afro-beats and ridiculous rare grooves.   Mathematically speaking, add a 10-piece band with a 4-piece DJ crew plus 1 powerhouse percussionist and you get the equation for smashing good times.  So strap on your dancing shoes and come kick it with our All Star funk-in your-junk line-up!
 
The Verse is the one and only old school Funk big-band in China.  They crush sounds with an infectious combination of Funk, Rock, Soul and Pop, since 1999.  With both original songs and hot covers in Chinese and English, their big 10-piece band brings real musicians, real Funk, and a sexy all-the-way-live performance vibe to the show.
 
Funk Fever is a music collective formed in February 2009, focused on bringing quality Funk, Soul, and affiliated musical forms to Beijing and China.  Their parties and dedication to the form have roused attention and the group is helping lay the foundation for solid musical diversity in the capital city and beyond.  Current members are: Slide (UK), Perman (Germany), Martin Star (Germany), Bite*Size Buddha (USA) & percussionist Sammy Slazenger – aka People’s Rhythm (UK).
