Mega Funk Fest Stars: Dazz Band, GAPX – The Band, Rose Royce
With special guest Soul Power Band Saturday, June 22nd
Ikonic Productions Presents Mega Funk Fest featuring the legendary Dazz Band, GAPX – The Band, Rose Royce and special guest Soul Power Band at 7 p.m. on Saturday, June 22nd at the historic Celebrity.
Get ready for bass-slapping, synth-driven funk from Cleveland, Ohio as Dazz Band (short for “danceable jazz”) brings back those tight rhythms and smooth singing from the ‘80s. Hits include the Grammy award-winning “Let It Whip” and the not-so-subtle sexual groove of “Joystick,” along with “Heartbeat,” “Party Right Here” and “Swoop!” The Dazz Band is currently back in the studio and looking forward to bringing new music to audiences everywhere in 2019.
GAPX – the Band is the funky, rocking, soulful mega band brought to life by six of the original Gap Band players. This is not a tribute band – it is the core group of players who wrote, recorded, and toured the world originally as The Gap Band. The amazing hits such as “Outstanding,” “Yearning For Your Love,” “All of My Love,” “Burn Rubber On Me,” “You Dropped a Bomb On Me” and “Early In The Morning” – are all performed live, loud, and with a lot of love.
Rose Royce is considered by many fans to be one of the most underrated groups to hail from the ‘70s era. A resurgence of their music, through continued airplay and steady covers by admiring artists, has kept the L.A.-based group’s classy funk and soul flowing well into the 21st Century. Timeless sensations include “I Wanna Get Next to You,” “Love Don’t Live Here Anymore” (later remade by Beyonce), “Wishing On A Star” and most notably, the classic movie soundtrack to the iconic Richard Pryor film, “Car Wash.”
Soul Power Band has evolved into one of the hottest acts in the Metro-Phoenix area. This group brings you vintage soul, funk and R&B like never before heard in the Valley and is ready to share their smooth vocal harmonies and tight rhythms with Mega Funk Fest patrons!
