BuHo Spring Soul

mad satta3 (2)

The soulful Greg Shaheen ’13 hollers at y’all:

This Friday at BuHo, sink into the deep grove and infectious melodies of two jazz-influenced soul/R&B/funk bands that are turning heads and moving bodies wherever they play.

Mad Satta is truly fun to listen to – music for the right reasons. Led by the terrific and powerful voice of Joanna Teters, this is a group that will be an important component of the movement to keep this music moving forward… – Taylor Eigsti -Pianist(2x GRAMMY nominee)

Mad Satta and Skybars are two bands full of unstoppable musicians who make me and everyone around me feel so goooood…
-Wesleyan student ’13

Skybars is Wesleyan’s own funky soul band that has been identified in the past couple years as a guaranteed path to liberation from the hegemonic order of repetitive mediocrity on a Wesleyan Friday, featuring [past the jump]
