SLANG is that jazz funk band that will make your speakers smell. Listening to Slang live is more than music ~it's a life experience and a view into it's 5 members' souls. Anything can happen anytime the band takes the stage! Their sound pays reverence to all of their predecessors, while creating a progressive musical language deeply rooted in improvisational jazz, funk, rock, hip hop & neo-soul. This new sound was born in early on when it's 4 founding members all from other groups THE BREAKESTRA, THE PHARCYDE, GLOBETRODDAS, SHOPPY, JARF, AFTERNEXT, had a vision to funkify the world, expanding funk's possibilities and bringing its lively tradition back to a mainstream audience. The four brothers of the sun began jammin out tunes producing the first debut album self-titled (soul love an' groove) that is still in demand all over the world!! Even while all of this was going on there was still one thing missing, a last ingredient, a missing element and that was the (GRAMMY AWARD WINNING ) L.A. percussionist Miguel Ramirez, who has helped to bring this group into its current form.
MUSIC AT THE CENTER is a fundraiser for The DVAC and its programs. Doors open at 6:30 pm with the concert beginning at 7:00pm.
