Smart bets: The Royal Noise


Drawing on influences from the great funk masters Herbie Hancock and Parliament Funkadelic, as well as contemporary bands like Umphrey’s McGee and Lotus, Philadelphia-based funk band The Royal Noise is a self-described “relentless funk dance party.” One reviewer characterizes the band as “Groove, groove and more groove — with a side order of groove and a frothy mug of groove to wash it down with.” Getting the idea yet? The four-piece band promises “a different show [each night] with constant experimenting and improvising over heavy grooves, catchy melodies and instrumental prowess.” The Royal Noise performs at One Stop on Thursday, July 31, at 9 p.m. Free.
