KNOWER are hot futuresonic funk-pop. The LA duo represent the best of drummer-producer Louis Cole and Genevieve Artadi. Currently touring their fourth album ‘Life’ [2016] , and opening for The Red Hot Chili Peppers this summer, KNOWER cross dub-step grooves, jazz harmonies and funky vocals into an incredibly imaginative off-world experience. Their all star 5-piece features Thundercat’s sideman Dennis Hamm (Keys), Sam Gendel (Sax), Sam Wilkes (Bass), Louis Cole (Drums/Vox) and Genevieve Artadi’s iconic hot funk vocal style inspired by the late Prince to Michael Jackson.
An entirely DIY act since formation in 2010, KNOWER’s viral videos, discography and live visual experience has become an international phenomena to both the jazz, electronic, and digital culture. Unforgettable songs, “F*** The Make Up Skip The Shower” feature on GTA V’s Fly Lo FM, to “THE GOVT. KNOWS” lyric that will stick with you forever. Featured on Montreal Jazz Festival 2017 lineup, they’ve performed at Stockholm Jazz Festival, Toronto Jazz Festival, Quincy Jones Presents, to Snarky Puppy Family Dinner albums. Known for their live show to take their infectious energy to another level, Quincy Jones best sums up why you can’t miss them, “KNOWER WILL BE LEAVIN’ YA’LL ON YOUR KNEES, BEGGIN’ FOR MORE.”
Darla is an 8-piece progressive funk group from Philadelphia. Self-described ‘basement blender funk,’ the band’s sound is a melding of its raw origin in the Philly basement scene and keen compositional focus on feeling the groove. At its core, the Darla sound is driven by a powerful horn section that wields a lyrical and catchy sense of phrasing. Their efforts are matched by a jarring and methodical rhythm section that has been described as ‘Steely Dan with Dave Grohl on drums'.

Since forming in 2014, Darla has shared the stage with the likes of Snarky Puppy, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, George Porter Jr. (of The Meters), Kamasi Washington, and Cory Henry and the Funk Apostles. They have released five EPs to date, including their most recent effort Darla Comes Alive Vol. 2, and plan to release a sixth before the year is out. Darla is ready to share their funk across the eastern seaboard with shows & festival appearances lined up for the rest of 2016.
