The Workshy
The Workshy
The Workshy, is an eclectic six-piece funk group based out of the Denver area, that provides an incredibly energetic live show by pulling influences from jazz, blues, funk and more to create an infectious blend of music. With members from L.A, Washington, New York, Iowa, and South Korea; The Workshy is able to create a sound that is unique as their roots. The Workshy's constantly evolving sound is stronger than ever allowing them to open for such acts as Jazz is Dead, Euforquestra, Great American Taxi, Fruition, Radio Moscow, The Word and Juno What?! Playing such festivals as Wakarusa, Camp Euphoria, The Bella Festival Series, and 80/35, The Workshy is captivating crowds and building a strong following around the national music scene. As Mary Buck of the Des Moines Music Coalition put it "Don’t be surprised if you find yourself smiling unwittingly. It just sounds fun."
The Jumbies
The Jumbies
Jumbies takes the rhythm, energy and motion of traditional Afro-Caribbean musical styles such as Soca and Reggae, the vibrant sound of the steel pan, and a high-energy funk backing band and spins out a tasty cocktail of seriously danceable music. What further blows the mind is that this sound comes out of five guys from Iowa.
