Folk-Funk Fight Night will be a fantastic night with Aabaraki, George Woods, and Robert Gilles.

Aabaraki's delicious neo-soul sound not only pays homage to the founders of funk, but also modernizes the genre. In a trend-heavy musical climate, the four-piece Aabaraki opts for sophisticated minimalism, operating as a single unit in producing, writing, singing, and creating all of its music.

Find a friend in the funky grooves and singable tunes of George Woods's brand of "folk-funk for bohemians," bringing you songs like the poetic memoirs of a love-struck Ginsberg, mixed with some boundary-bending musical charm. With a tongue-in-cheek stage presence and a one-on-one style of audience rapport, Woods provides a live concert experience that is both intimate and fun, full of storytelling and guitar-slinging expertise.
