    The BeatCrunchers have grown in scope and enchanted audiences from the WOW Hall to Oregon Country Fair to Honk Fest West, getting all the booties shaking with their mighty Brazilian percussion, exuberant funky horns, and live analog effects. Incorporating members from bands such as Kef, Samba Ja, The Klezmonauts, Phos4escence and Ziriguidum, the BeatCrunchers perform original material and creative covers based on everything danceable including but not limited to: Balkan melodies, Afro-Pop classics, modern hip hop, the old school soul canon, reggae favorites, Mozart and Rachmaninov and 1980's cartoons.

    Celebrating the East Bay Funk, the Power of Tower draws from some of Eugene's heaviest funk musicians to bring a tsunami of funk. This collaboration between members of Eleven Eyes, the Essentials, Candy Apple Blue, HiFi Funk Jam, Citizens of The Universe, and Reeble Jar is a big band! The five-piece horn section, 3 lead vocalists, and super groovin' rhythm section will make you wanna funkifize!

    Opening the show will be the house musicians from the HiFi Funk Jam who hone their funk chops week after week on Wednesdays at the HiFi Lounge. The Funk Jam consists of Kurt Catlin and Tim McLaughlin on guitars, James Burmeister on bass, Matt Calkins on sax, Graham Reinhart on keys, and TJ Martin-Lokey on drums
