Cherry Royale, Friday, October 26th $5
Cherry Royale is a funk/soul/r&b/hip-hop/electro collective combining funk, groove, psychedelia and dance into various mediums of soul, R&B and hip-hop…styling production from studio-cuts to live improv tracks. Formed in early 2010 by founding members of Atlanta funk-powerhouse Entropy, Athens reggae pioneers DubConscious and other like-minded Atlanta musicians who wanted a forum/template to express their wide-ranging musical tastes, Cherry Royale’s show can also include sets by MC Rock Most and The Sixteen Bars Hip-Hop Orchestra featuring MC Sub-Zero.
Recently played with Soulive, Orgone, Trombone Shorty, Mike Dillon, Yo Momma’s Big Fat Booty Band and Maceo Parker. Kofi and Oteil Burbridge and Kebbi Williams (Derek Trucks/Susan Tedeschi Band) are all guest performers on their upcoming self-titled EP, Cherry Royale, due out on Dirty Bomb Records (Atlanta) late summer 2012.
