KC Roberts & The Live Revolution – Funk Resistance Party

Dear Toronto,

It has been too long! KCLR will be throwing down a two set, monster night of funk delivered by a 10 piece band.

We’ve been writing a whole bunch of brand new funky tunes, and will playing them all along with our crowd favourite room rompers.

This will be a very different show because I (KC) will not be singing. Last year at some point I suffered a pretty serious vocal hemorrhage and never fully recovered. I tried to sing through it, but at a couple venues with poor monitors, I did some bad damage. So I’m in the recovery process, and I will be singing again. But for this show we’re getting Dakarai Morris-James who’s a KILLER singer and artist to hold it down, while the rest of us go buck wild on stage. I didn’t want to wait to get down with all of you, and this new band is starting to come together in some crazy new ways. We’ll have brand new songs and arrangements, and a big heavy band. We’re gonna take it to space and let the boogie take over. You don’t wanna miss this one!

Advance tix are 10$ and the door will be $20, so make plans with your crew ASAP.
Getthem here – https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/kc-roberts-the-live-revolution-featuring-dakarai-mod-club-tickets-32917940446

This will be a night like no other. And we can’t wait.

Nirvana Funk Tribute

kclr-nirvana-funk-tribute

KCLR is excited to announce NirvanaFunk, a two-set tribute to Nirvana on Friday June 24th at Horseshoe Tavern. It would be hard to overstate the impact that Kurt Cobain and Nirvana have had on us as musicians. There would be no KCLR if it weren’t for the passion, honesty and fire of bands like them. Back in 2010, we played a Nirvana tribute at Clinton’s where we played some tunes that have become mainstays in the KCLR repertoire. This time, we’ll take it to a whole new level.

We will be re-imagining a lot of this music while paying tribute to one of the fiercest songwriters and rock bands of all time.

Joining us will be a team of incredible musicians, many of whom have been a part of the KCLR extended family for a long time. You can also email us anytime if you have any questions.

NEW VIDEO! TRIBE BENEATH THE STORM

KCLR drop a brand new video, check it out:


Special thanks to James Ervin Joanna Mohammed-Gonzalez Claire Doyle and Phil Skladowski for joining our band, playing and singing beautifully, and making this very special song. Also Thanks to Phil Spencer for capturing and mixing this audio. And Brian Chambers for helping me edit this, for filming and overseeing the video shoot, and for being my partnerin the creation of this videography. Also shout outs to Brad Sayeau and Mark Valino for their camera work. What a crazy team. We refuse to make art that fits into a thimble, so if you want to feel what we were feeling, take 10 minutes and join us by the fire, by the drums, where the soul starts to vibrate away from these lines. Thank you, and much love to everyone who is sharing this music. You guys see and dig what we are trying to do, and I am humbled.

Much Love,

KCLR
