“Backbeat Underground” will appear at 1st Stage on March 15th This talented ensemble builds on Washington’s timeless soul traditions by introducing neo-soul-jazz elements into their songwriting. Booty shaking live performances and genre-defying collaborations delight audiences at iconic DC venues such as the Kennedy Center and Lincoln Theatre.
Funk / Soul and Jazz
Born in the depths of subterranean groove gatherings, Backbeat Underground is a Washington, DC based instrumental funk group with soul jazz influences. Bringing their years of collective experience in the DC and NYC music scenes, the band delivers tight, energetic sets steeped in fresh improvisation and head-bopping, booty-shaking pockets. Backbeat Underground was proud to serve as stewards of the funk in DC’s first and second annual Funk Parade, and the band is quickly gaining notoriety for their organic and smoldering blend of soulful funk and jazz.
