The young cats of ECHOES OF are paying tribute to the american cities of funk (songs between 1975 and 1985) in a very unique, original and ambitious way, covering and reviving songs not often performed live. So far exist ECHOES OF DETROIT (One Way, Bohannon, Carl Carlton), MINNEAPOLIS (Prince, The Time, André Cymone) DAYTON (Aurra, Sun, Lakeside), WASHINGTON (Trouble Funk, Soul Searchers, Chuck Brown), MIAMI (Uncle Louie, Gwen McCrae, T-Connection), PHILADELPHIA (Instant Funk, Breakwater, Bunny Sigler), SAN FRANCISCO (Con Funk Shun, Maze, Larry Graham), CHICAGO (Chaka Khan, Earth Wind and Fire, Omni)
The 6 (extendable to 12) pieces band always keep the same backing nucleus of musicians, inviting several and various singers who become ambassadors of the city they are assigned to. More cities to come such as Memphis, New Orleans, New York, Los Angeles and also non american cities such as London, Tokyo, Rio, … !
