Swirling, ostinato guitar patterns, deep, funky bass lines, and a monstrous percussion section lay the foundation for the searing melodies of the horn section, accentuated by pulsing electric piano comps. The sum total is a sound so massive, a beat so infectious, that audiences can’t sit and watch. The dance floor draws them in while the groove takes hold.
In case you haven’t caught this 10-piece Afrobeat ensemble before, if you frequent live shows around Madison, chances are good you’ve heard some of Immigré’s musicians with other groups in town. Featuring players from bands such as Youngblood Brass Band, Tani Diakite and the Afrofunkstars, The Mustache, and The Big Payback, these guys have been bringing the funk to dance floors across the Midwest for years. Now, with Immigré, the notorious Afrobeat sound has descended upon Wisconsin in a big way.

Midtown Social
In a city that thrives on its diversity, sun-soaked California retro-soul band Midtown Social unites a fractured San Francisco undergoing swells of monumental change with an uplifting and outright funky new full-length studio album, Fantastic Colors, due out nationwide on Valentine’s Day 2020. Midtown Social is of the fabric of San Francisco with its members representing the wide swathes of what makes the city so extraordinary. For its latest studio recording co-produced by Jeff Kolhede (Money Mark, Alphabet Rockers), Midtown Social writes a love letter to its hometown amid a perilous time when reverence is essential for collective healing. Drastic income disparity, sky-rocketing rents, profound homelessness, acute drug abuse, among other critical issues, are rendering the city unrecognizable. On Fantastic Colors, Midtown Social offers a compassionate reflection of its true love for San Francisco.
