We represent to you "PLUNKI & ONESESS" Band :
( from USA )
"Plunky & Oneness" is one of the most enduring and versatile funk, jazz, Afro-fusion groups of all time. The group has been described as "the missing link between Pharoah Sanders and Kool & the Gang!" The band has been performing for more than 30 years and they still have a funky fresh sound as evidenced by their 2004 concerts with Earth Wind & Fire and SOS Band. Every "Plunky & Oneness" concert is a festive carnival. A party with a purpose.
Led by saxophonist J. Plunky Branch, who has been gigging and touring for over 35 years, "Plunky & Oneness" is a unique combination: exotic smooth grooves, sax, vocals, African percussion, and electronics. This, along with the group's infectious energy, moves audiences of all ages to celebrate dance and shout.
Over the years Plunky has produced and released 20 albums of original avant-garde jazz, funk, soul, fusion, gospel and African music. Forever In A Moment is the group's new smooth, urban jazz CD. Last year Strut Records of London released a two-CD retrospective compilation entitled African Rhythms - Oneness of Juju 1970 -1982. But make no mistake about it: live, onstage Plunky has got to be Phunky!
"Plunky & Oneness" has performed at numerous festivals, including three times at the National Black Arts Festival, Atlanta, Georgia; twice at the Hampton Jazz Festival in Virginia; and at the World's Fair in New Orleans. The group has toured in Africa and Europe, with three headline performances at London's famed Jazz Cafe They have opened concerts for some of the biggest names in Black music, including: Earth Wind & Fire, Patti LaBelle, B. B. King, Ray Charles, Frankie Beverly & Maze, Sun Ra, The Isley Brothers and Roy Ayers. In addition to their performances at the National Museum of African Art in Washington, DC; the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, VA and at Alice Tully Hall at the Lincoln Center in New York, "Plunky & Oneness" enjoys the intimacy and loyalty of smaller venues in their native Mid-Atlantic region.
