Funk You @Barrelhouse South 

It’s always a party when Funk You comes to town, and the Augusta, Georgia gents are back to get you dancing. Blending jazz, rock 'n’ roll, jam, prog, soul, and, of course, a whole lotta of funk, the six-piece has a way of getting even the shyest wallflowers out on the floor.

Will Foster’s organ and keyboards transports audiences right back to the ‘70s with his trills and vivacious strains. Guitarist Evan Miller, bassist Rob Thompson, and drummer Will Clark work together to create buoyant, complex riffs that will delight the festival set and get the club kids moving. It’s all tied together by Gavin Hamilton’s seemingly boundless vocals and dynamic crowd engagement. Listen for killer originals from their 6-song self-titled album, plus plenty of funk favorites and unexpected covers.

Atlanta’s The 200s open the evening, fitting perfectly in the mix with a fusion of funk-disco-space sounds.

Saturday, February 13, 9 p.m., free, 21+
