Funky Amigos invites The Blassics to the intimate stage of mbar to bring their groovy sounds of jazz’n’funk’n’afrobeat straight from Hämeenlinna, Finland. With a new single and a new video out, the night will feature some fresh material along with the blasting classics that made the group famous.
The Blassics was founded by two funkheads named Juha Sarkkola and Tuure Tammi in 2007. After years of collecting vinyl records they started producing music on their own. The group is known for their vintage instrumentation and analog recording equipment, which gives their laidback grooves just the right taste of jazz, drop of funk and spice of afrobeat. They released their first album in the beginning of 2013 on their own Odd Funk Records label and now in January 2014 followed it up by a 7 inch single of the new track “Smokey Session”. On stage the group expands into a five piece band laying down the boogie just the way we like them.
Dj action of the night is provided by Rauha Trio‘s DJ Lovroc & Miky Mau. A long-time regular of the Funky Amigos parties, DJ Lovroc is a man with a deep crate and impeccable ear for grooves that make your feet tap, your head bop and your bottom shake. Come and rejoice!
