St. Louis! Funk Fest Turns 10 This Year
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), August 23, 2015 - St. Louis! Funk Fest turns 10 this year. The annual showcase of St. Louis area funk, rhythm and blues, jazz and soul bands returns September 19 & 20, 2015.

The event will take place at Broadway Oyster Bar, located at 726 S Broadway, BB's Jazz Blues & Soups, 700 S Broadway, and Beale on Broadway, located at 701 S Broadway. A second family-friendly day to present more locally grown, world-class talent. Bands will perform on Saturday from 8 p.m. until 2:30 a.m. and on Sunday from noon until 8 p.m.

Funk Fest 10 features 24 live band performances, including: Funky Butt Brass Band, Soulard Blues Band, Aaron Kamm and the One Drops, Marquis Knox, Al Holliday and the Eastside Rhythm Band, Dogtown Allstars Funkestra, Miss Jubilee and the Humdingers, The Loot Rock Gang, Hip Grease, Big Brother Thunder and the Master Blasters, The Service featuring Nite Owl, The People's Key, Naked Rock Fight feat. Dawn Weber, Fresh Heir, Love Jones, Torrey Casey and the Southside Hustle, The Provels, Good for the Soul, The Liberation Organ Trio, Cree Rider Family Band, Roland Johnson & Soul Endeavor, The Dust Covers, Jeremy Segal Moss with Eric McSpadden, and Mo E All-Stars.

Producer, KDHX DJ and local musician Andy Coco is also shooting a documentary about the vibrant St. Louis music community, and will be capturing performances from the live event as a centerpiece for the film. "I'm so charged to have such an amazing lineup to offer in this year's Funk Fest and with the idea of making a documentary film about it," said Coco. "Music is a great unifier of people from all backgrounds. With the event and documentary, I hope to help shift St. Louis's troubled media perception by presenting a positive document highlighting one of our great legacies as well as remind people of the importance of supporting the local live music scene as a way of preserving and sustaining our international identity."

Funk Fest 10 sponsors include local craft Brewers, the St. Louis Blues Society, and Play it Forward, a local nonprofit that redistributes used musical instruments to area students and music programs in need. Donations of used instruments will be accepted at the event.

One-day wristbands are available for Saturday for $10 (10 bands perform) and Sunday for $12 (14 bands perform), or a two-day wristband is available for $20 at all three venues. Wristbands can be reserved in advance by calling Broadway Oyster Bar at 314-621-8811.
