GENRE

Blues / Funk
West End Blend and Bella's Bartok

I would like, if I may, to take you on a strange journey this Halloween night! West End Blend and Bella's Bartok team up once again to give you a Halloween you won't soon forget! It's just a jump to the left! And then a step to the riiiight!

Since their conception, CT-based Funk/Soul band West End Blend has been playing their version of Funk and Soul in venues all over the Northeast and beyond. Fronted by vocalist Erica T. Bryan, the band pays homage to classic throwback sounds while adding their own distinct vibe and flair. Behind her, the Blend packs two guitars, a two-piece horn section, bass, keyboards and drums onto stages every night. From humble beginnings in an epic and sweaty basement dance party, The Blend’s goal has always been to bring that same atmosphere to their shows ever since.

Northampton, MA based, Bella's Bartok plays a mesmerizing mix of Eastern European, Americana, punk, and pop music. Their live shows are theatrical, “a mix of The Nightmare Before Christmas and the Rocky Horror Picture Show” says front man Asher Putnam. “We are the night and you are bound to boogie.”


FOR FANS OF: FUNK, JAZZ, SOUL, HIP-HOP

Artist Bio

"West End Blend sounds like the funk giants mentioned earlier (George Clinton, Earth Wind & Fire, Kool & the Gang), but it's closer in spirit to the more recent acid jazz: the Brand New Heavies, Jamiroquai, Digable Planets and others, who pull together various strains of funk, soul, hip-hop and jazz.” - Mike Hamad, Hartford Courant

West End Blend has shared the stage with Charles Bradley, Turkuaz, members of Snarky Puppy and Lettuce, Break Science, Kung Fu, Twiddle, Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds, The Nth Power, The Motet and countless others Jam/Funk staples. Their horns have also been featured as special guests with bands such as Dopapod, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Twiddle, TAUK and more.  West End Blend has begun to take their dance party to cities around the US so be on the lookout for when The Blend comes to your town.
