Afriquerque

Realease the Funk!

Courtesy of the artist
Afriquerque is the name of a concert happening on Saturday, Feb. 17 at 7:30pm at the African American Performing Arts Center. As far as the event providing a vibrant methodology for celebrating this year's iteration of Black History Month, you can count on the musicians involved to joyfully express and transmit significant cultural memes through the music they make this and every evening to come on this big blue marble. That and the local performers involved happen to be some of the best, most chop-tastic instrumentalists this side of the planet Jupiter. Bassist and vocalist Rodney Bowe helms a band of excellence for this concert; the ensemble includes Jim Ahrend on keys, Dimi Disanti on guitar, Paul Palmer on drums and Best of Burque Music Reader's Poll winner Artha Meadors on bass. These dudes are guaranteed to take the funk out, spin it around the auditorium and drop it on your head lovingly, so you better go if you know what's good—and groovy—for you. $10 to $15, all-ages.
