The Funk Ark Tours the U.S.
The Funk Ark, an outfit from Washington D.C. that brings a instrumental mix of afrobeat, funk and various other soul-infused styles. Recently, we reviewed the fiery and energetic High Noon, the latest offering from them. Reviewer Sam Backer dug the album and stating that, "anyone who  likes afrobeat will certainly enjoy it. Also, the group will definitely  be unstoppable live." Well, if you are stateside and specifically on the eastern-side, then you are in luck because the outfit is bringing their show on the road!
