New York Funk Exchange

by Metroland Staff on January 3, 2013


After weeks of failed negotiations, Congress finally reached an agreement New Year’s Day to avert the so-called “funk cliff.” With Rep. John Boehner and his GOP colleagues abandoning their push for rhythmic austerity, the deal is being hailed as a great victory for President Obama’s syncopated agenda and vision of one nation under the groove. Come celebrate this Saturday with ambassadors New York Funk Exchange, the nine-piece Brooklyn envoy who have spent much of the past few years in counsel with funk legends Galactic, the JBs, Melvin Seals and Martha and the Vandellas. (Jan. 5, 8 PM, 388 Broadway, Albany, 465-0444)
