Kung Fu (Save Montauk Event) Special Guests The Montauk Project & Soundswell
In the vanguard of the new-funk movement, KUNG FU is quickly popularizing their unique sonic contribution “NU-SION”, blurring the line between intense electro-fusion, and blistering dance arrangements. Making funk fusion music “cool” again, the band draws on influences such as early Headhunters, Weather Report, & Mahavishnu Orchestra, and merges those ideas with technical fireworks and a contemporary EDM informed sensibility. The ensemble, a seasoned pedigree that reads like a late-night summer festival all-star jam has been described by critics and fans of Galactic & Umphrey’s McGee alike as “lethal funk”, “explosive”, “jaw dropping”, and “musically mesmerizing”. For the uninitiated, the experience is typically shocking yet the focus is simple:ENTER THE DRAGON!
Kung Fu features Tim Palmieri on guitar (The Breakfast), Robert Somerville on tenor sax (Deep Banana Blackout), Beau Sasser on Keyboards (Alan Evans Trio, Ryan Montbleau, The Z3, Beau Sasser’s Escape Plan), Christopher DeAngelis on bass guitar (The Breakfast) and Adrian Tramontano on drums/percussion (The Breakfast).
The Montauk Project is an all-original rock band hailing from Montauk NY. They have been together for three years have released their first full length album, "Belly of the Beast". They have been gigging regularly between the Hamptons and NYC for the past year, and have made appearances at The Studio at Webster Hall, Arlene’s Grocery, The Bowery Electric, The Surf Lodge, The Stephen Talkhouse and Memory Motel among others. They picked up a Jagermeister sponsorship in June and their main focus this past summer has been on growing their fan base and playing to larger audiences.
