Afrofunk Experience
Afrofunk Experience
These purveyors of original Afrobeat, Reggae and Funk music are dance floor veterans, with current and former members of Spearhead, Afrolicious, Katdelic and Broun Fellinis among them. They will get you moving with their funky rhythms, draw you in with their soulful singing, and carry you away with their spirit-filled solos.
Winners of the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding World Music Album, 2010 (W/ Sila and the Afrofunk Experience) for Black President
Guitarist/Singer David James (Spearhead, The Coup, Beth Custer) brings his sinewy style to counter the funk-metal stylings of lead guitarist Ken House (H.P. Riot). The precise funk-rock drumming of Paul Olipant (Afrolicious, Will Magid Trio) with Wendell Rand's (Afrolicious, Tracorum, Youssoupha Sidibe) muscular dance grooves keep the band tight, while saxophonist David Boyce (Broun Fellinis, The Supplicants) and trombonist Alan Williams (Manicato, Katdelic) wail, their horns producing a sound that encompasses outward-bound jazz, classic reggae, afrobeat and R&B. Percussionist B. Lee thickens and adds flavor to the mix, and on top of all this, recent addition Sandy House adds her sultry voice and powerful stage presence.
Broun Fellinis

Anita Lofton is a guitarist, singer-songwriter who knows her way around wah-wah, smallstone and rat pedals. As former lead guitarist for Sistas In The Pit, the all-black-girl rock band, she toured Europe and China, and later North America opening for Iggy Pop and The Stooges.

She's now armed and ready to rock audiences with just some strings.
