Levitt Amp Utica

Utica | New York


July 31, 2017 at 6pm


Syracuse-based Sophistafunk, the product of three multi-talented musicians—Adam Gold, Jack Brown and Emanuel Washington—combines spoken word artistry, 'old-school' hip-hop and funky rhythms to create a dynamic and eclectic live band experience. The trio explores electronic dance grooves while infusing each tune with soul and positively charged lyrics. Sophistafunk has performed at a variety of famed music venues including The Blue Note Jazz Club and the Brooklyn Bowl (NYC), The Boom Boom Room (San Francisco), The Belly Up (Aspen); and has supported a number of widely-respected artists, including Soulive, G. Love, Foreigner, Trombone Shorty, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, EOTO and Marco Benevento.

Who knew that merging the new school with the old school could be this much fun? – Selena Hodom, The Groovelink Magazine
