KC ROBERTS & THE LIVE REVOLUTION (Direct from Canada)
KCLR’s pedigree as a live band is well-established, drawing comparisons to The Roots, Jamiroquai and Janelle Monae. The band has regularly shared the stage with major international artists including recent events with DJ Q-Bert, Spectrum Road and Blue King Brown, as well as an upcoming event with soul legend Lee Fields. These achievements have enabled KCLR to become jazz festival favourites around Ontario (TD Toronto Jazz, Beaches Jazz Festival, Aurora Jazz Festival, Jazz on the Mountain at Blue, Sudbury Jazz Festival).
Beat Mosaic is a hard hitting raw funk and California soul band from Los Angeles, California. Anchored in a classic funk sound that evokes comparisons to the Meters and the J.B’s, this 8 person outfit broadcasts a sound that is both familiar yet their own. A band who’s influences range from rare funk, classic soul, and psychedelic rock to the rhythmic layers and textures of afrobeat and jazz, Beat Mosaic weaves a tapestry of styles into a seamlessly organic and natural groove that is by turns laid-back and uproarious
