Bio

Deep Funk and BAD Afro! Blending influences from 1970s Nigerian Afrobeat with the deepest of street Funk, The Seven Ups are the original 7-piece party band. Expect unrestrained solos by unkempt horns over an unpretentious rhythm section whose only interest is laying it down!

Love what you do always! Solid track with amazing horns sweet afro groove and I especially love how this track takes a dark turn in the middle.

Cool what you guys have done with the heavy guitar at the end of this one! Adds to the energy that the horns provide for classic Seven Ups. ;)
