Afrolicious and Frobeck at Ivy Room

Afrolicious's sound combines soulful lyrics, funky bass lines, a blast of punchy horns, while retaining the soul and feel of classic funk, disco, Latin, and Afrobeat melodies. These are the type of songs you can blast in your car for some feel-good crusin' or dance to at the club.

The live/electronic band and large collective based in the San Francisco Bay Area/Los Angeles started out not as a band but as a club night at the famed Elbo Room in The Mission District in 2007. The format of Afrolicious party was very open and included the DJs spinning the latest soulful dance music including Afro-House, broken beat, modern funk and disco alongside classics and re-edits and remixes of their favorite Afrobeat, Salsa, and Brazilian funk alongside live percussionists and guest MCs and musicians. Eventually morphing into a live band led by the production and arrangement skills of Pleasuremaker, many dancers, DJs and producers began to take notice of their unique sound.

With high-octane vocals, life-altering songs, and world-class musicianship, Frobeck is one of Northern California's top Funk-Rock bands.

Since the band's inception in 2005, Frobeck has earned a Grammy nomination and two North Bay Music Award (NORBAY) nominations. They have shared the stage with Bootsy Collins, Bill Champlin and The Sons of Champlin, Booker T, Ozomatli, Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk, Tommy Castro, Big Brother and the Holding Company, The New Mastersounds, Trombone Shorty, Papa Grows Funk, Los Lonely Boys and many other nationally/internationally recognized acts.

Boasting a full lineup of bass, drums, guitars, keys replete with sultry backing vocals, Frobeck covers all the bases. With an earth-shaking horn section, this powerhouse group has entered into the realm of their musical heroes: Tower of Power, The Sons of Champlin, and Stevie Wonder. Frobeck is sure to get your blood pumping, booty shaking, and your groove grooving.
