Are you ready for the funk? Come groove your face off to this 11 piece cover band with 2 female vocalists. One of them, Haley Johnsen was a finalist for American Idol. Archie is in the Beastie Boys cover band, who play around town. Containing members from Earring aid and Ghostfrog, PDX Funkaholics is a diverse act full of 70’s funky tenacity.
Natasha Kmeto is a Portlandbased singer and electronic producer who turns heads everywhere she goes. Armed with a taut dance floor sensibility and flutteringly sensuous voice, she exudes the kind of beauty that can only come from confidence. Her tracks are sleek and energetic affairs, straddling the line between dance, pop, and RnB, percussively intriguing compositions that slide easily into the ear but aren’t so easily forgotten. Her beauty, energy, and talent coalesce into a truly visceral live show, moving both to the partygoer and the thinking person alike. Wherever her music goes, heavy breathing will follow.
Jacob Poe was born and raised in Portland Oregon. As a House DJ, Jacob’s style can be described as soulful, deep, bass, tech, chunky, funky, disco, jazz, with some banging beats to wash it all down with. DJ Poe has played clubs and raves in Italy, Montana, Washington, and Oregon. With over 14 years of experience under his belt he is sure to rock the turntables for all those who love House music and funky tech beats with heavy bass lines. Jacob has also had some recent track releases on mimosa recordings. Be on the look out for more releases on O.X.O Records, Seven Records, and Treasured Grooves!
Up and coming electronic/hiphop artist from Anchorage, Alaska is making his debut here in Portland, Oregon. Influenced by artists such as DJ Shadow and RJD2, he’s sure to kick off the show with some smooth and heavy downtempo beats.
