In this new continuous series I will be highlighting some up-and-coming bands, DJs, and artists. To kick the series off we will be highlighting Center Coast, a funk and soul band based in Minneapolis. Cofounders Andy Schupp and Sam Rosenstone started Center Coast in 2012. They have been working on perfecting their sound and driving their funky vibe home all across the Midwest. In the age of Nu-Funk and Nu-Jazz, Center Coast brings back the old school funk sound. They are definitely a band to keep on your radar. If you are interested in catching a live set, Center Coast frequently plays at venues in the Twin Cities, some of these include: Northrop, Day Block Brewing, 612Brew, and many others. In the meantime while you wait, check out their Soundcloud where you can listen to their EP. This has been the first article in the new Breakout Wednesdays series, be sure to check back soon to catch the next entry!
