Funk / Jazz Fusion
Kung Fu and Hayley Jane and the Primates

Are you ready Hartford!? This summer we are bringing in some serious parties. The members of Kung Fu have been shredding tunes and melting faces for over a decade here in CT and are bringing this Jazz-Funk Dance Fusion to venues and festivals alike. They will get the house seriously rocking.

Also joining them this evening is the super fun Hayley Jane and the Primates. You’ll absolutely love her on-stage energy and the Primates bring some serious chops and theatrics with their Jazz-Funk-Blues-Indie fusion.

Prepare for a night of dancing because the seats are coming out for this one. Come join us in welcoming both of these bands as they debut on our stage!!

Artist Bio

Proud to be firmly installed in the new-funk movement, KUNG FU is quickly popularizing their unique sonic contribution, blurring the line between intense electro-fusion, and blistering dance arrangements. Making fusion music "cool" again, the band draws on influences such as early Headhunters and Weather Report, and merges those ideas with a contemporary EDM informed sensibility. Imagine 70's funk-fusion meets a modern dance party!

Although the ensemble cast enjoys a seasoned pedigree that reads like a late- night summer festival all-star jam, this fledgling "nu-sion" project is growing a unique and rabid following by commanding audiences at theaters, clubs, and major national festivals since 2012.

The powerhouse quintet's live show has been described by critics and fans alike as "lethal funk", "explosive", "jaw dropping", and "musically mesmerizing". Forthe uninitiated, the experience is typically shocking yet the focus is simple: just sit back and enjoy the ride!

Hayley Jane & The Primates combine Americana, soul and rock & roll with rich lyrical imagery that electrifies the heart. At the helm is rising star, Hayley Jane. She leads the band through an infectious live experience filled with powerful vocal range, vibrant dance choreography and dramatic performance that captivates her devoted fanbase.

Hailing from Boston MA, the band was the winner of the 2014 New England Music Awards’ Roots/Americana Act Of The Year and has been performing at premiere venues and festivals across the country. Hayley Jane has also established herself as a strong female presence in the national music scene and was recently featured in the RELIX “Women Who Rock” Issue.

The band’s first full-length album, Gasoline, was engineered by Brian Wallace of Sublime and released in 2014. The album was recorded during a West Coast Tour that kicked off at the iconic Whisky a Go Go and ended with a Monday Night Football performance at Qualcomm Stadium.

Hayley Jane and the Primates are releasing their sophomore album “We’re Here Now” in the Fall of 2017. Produced by Craig Brodhead of Turkuaz, the album carries an energy and poetry that represents the best of American music.

The band has played a variety of music festivals including Gathering of The Vibes, Catskill Chill, FloydFest, Strange Creek, Wormtown, Camp Creek, Jerry Jam, Disc Jam, Great North, and many more. The band has shared bills with Dopapod, Perpetual Groove, The Nth Power, Zach Deputy, Pink Talking Fish, Dumpstaphunk and many more.

Hayley Jane and the Primates released their first EP entitled Color Me, in the spring of 2012, which was described as “brilliant, brave, innocent, tangled and cutting edge…genius” -Scarlet’s Picks

“Hayley Jane & The Primates are one of the most exciting and rapidly ascending bands touring the jamband circuit today. The band possesses a natural sense of fearlessness on stage, which is fueled by their unquestionable chemistry, and daring sense to explore musical parts unknown by pushing the envelope in a live setting.” Stu Kelley – Relix Magazine
