Welcome to a meetup that celebrates the *greatest* live instrumental music: FUNK! (and funky versions of its cousins- afrobeat, soul, hip hop, brass, jazz and rock)

The late, great James Brown and many of his colleagues may no longer be with us, but rest assured funk is alive and well in a venue right around the corner!! There is no better way to listen to these electric, joyous beats than front and center and there are some amazing NEW funk bands out there that promise to put on a show that will leave you dancing and sweaty! Within seconds of the first few chords, you'll find yourself grooving and exchanging smiles with good company as your troubles melt away. Come check out these shows and compare notes with your fellow funk-adoring comrades. Hot and steamy off the NYC funk research press. And post your own ideas for live funk meetups!

Please RSVP to upcoming events so I can try to get us DISCOUNTS!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
