Bubonik Funk
Bubonik Funk
Bubonik Funk is an American Rock band, from Charlotte, North Carolina formed in 2006, consisting of Stefan Kallander (guitar, vocals), Dylan Ellett (vocals, organ), Nick Mcowen (bass guitar), and Daniel Allison (drums, vocals). With their funky, guitar-driven soulful sound, Bubonik Funk are regularly cited as a groove and jam band. However, the band's individualistic style draws from many sources and transcends any one music genre. Bubonik Funk did not release songs from their initial album virally, as they preferred to develop their sound and style further.

Bubonik Funk is held in high regard for their emphasis on independent management, full control of the creative process, and a widening sphere of popularity despite any aid from commercial companies or record labels. In 2007, the band began playing shows in the Charlotte area, venues such as Tremont Music Hall, Neighborhood Theatre, and the Evening Muse. By 2009, Bubonik Funk had played as far north as Boston, and for college crowds of UNC Chapel Hill, East Carolina University, UNC Wilmington and Berklee School of Music in Boston.

As of 2010, the band has released two E.P.s. "OTB" and "Wink at the Devil". Both albums were self produced with a single production engineer, Dustin Hofsess. Creative control, album art and distribution fell in the hands of the band itself.

Bubonik Funk has played with respected musicians such as Soulive, Laura Reed and the Deep Pocket, Cyril Neville, and last July played Verizon Wireless prior to Phish. The band has done a 45 minute radio interview with Davakar of 106.5 The End and performed their song "Woman in My Basket".

The band recorded their third official album in July of 2011. The album will contain nine songs, more than any other prior album. The release date is set for 2012.

Originally formed in Brooklyn, NY in 2007, this young, six-piece soul infused rock band is known for their tight, high-energy performances that have vaulted them into the national spotlight.

After their relocation to the beautiful mountainside of Asheville,
NC, The Broadcast has grown into a full-time, nationally touring group. Their rise on the festival circuit has scored them press interest from such outlets as FlavorPill, VERVE and Cosmopolitan Magazine who described lead vocalist Caitlin Krisko's voice as "drenched in honey, and dripping with soul".

The Broadcast draws influences from the funky and soulful "Motown Sound" and the raw vocal prowess of singers such as Janis Joplin and Aretha Franklin. Platinum blonde, Caitlin Krisko, whose commanding and captivating voice has been compared to the likes of Adele and Grace Potter, fronts the band with a prowess not often found in vocalists her age.

Their powerhouse performances are not only characterized by Krisko's dynamic voice but also by the interplay of the band. The trio of Michael Davis (drums), Matthew Davis (bass) and Tyler Housholder (percussion) create rich foundations of rhythm that drive the band. Guitarist Aaron Austin and keyboardist Rich Brownstein punctuate the group's sound with their soulful solo's and deep tonal textures.
