Brothers Matt and Mark Hill (The Floozies) are bringing their special
brand of Funk to the Red Rocks stage Saturday October 8 th along with
guests Michal Menert, Sunsquabi, and Russ Liquid. The Floozies are
native to Lawrance, Kansas, a state with a rich history rooted deeply in
Jazz and blues culture. The two brothers founded the group in 2008
starting with humble house parties. The Floozies soon rose to main
stage sell-out events after only a few years. The duo brings their
special blend of jazz, electronic, and funk to the stage in a totally
unique way. All of the music produced and played by the Floozies on
stage is done live! There is no sampling or pre-recorded sets, as the
music-minded brothers create the show from scratch. Once they get
on stage, Mark lays down a drum line and Matt proceeds to shred the
guitar and produce the various funky trap wubs in the background.
The Floozies create an awesome performance to watch which is
guaranteed to move your heart and more importantly – your booty.
This will Be the Floozies first headlining show at the world famous
Colorado venue, however it will not be their first time under the rocks,
as The Floozies made an appearance last year with "All Good Records"
label mate Griz opening for his "Evening Of Funk" in October. The pair
threw down some headbanging filth, while keeping the funky dance
fire burning the entire time. After their set Matt gave a moving 30
second speech expressing his overwhelming feelings of love and
appreciation for the community and family that this music creates and
brings together. The moment was one of pure bliss that sent much of
the crowd into an eye watering, heart warming, fuzzy moment that
will not soon be forgotten. The Floozies will without a doubt be pulling
out all the stops for this show, taking the headlining opportunity to
make this show one that will go down in progressive electronic funk
The Floozies will be joined by Michal Menert & The Pretty Fantastics,
label mates SunSquabi, and Russ Liquid. An intro line up that will not
only get the fire started but will dump a few extra gallons of gasoline
on this live instrument electric jam session. If you are unfamiliar with
Michal Menert, you may be familiar with his childhood friend Derek
Vincent Smith. The two started a group known as "Pretty Lights"
releasing their first album "Taking Up Your Precious Time" in 2006.
However after Michal was committed to an extended stay in a
Loveland CO hospital, he and Derek decided to go their separate ways,
and Menert started his own solo career in 2007. With support from
talent such as Michal and Russ liquid, the Floozies bench is already
stacked but when you add label mates SunSquabi into the mix you can
look forward to a night long jam session with all members' of each
group vibing and playing off of each other like they are one single
minded funky hive mind, whose mission is to make you groove and dip
all night long... Or at least till your back gives out from the funktrap
drops that any bass god or goddess would stand up and recognize.
The Floozies and friends will be joining us Saturday October 8th, doors
at 5:30pm, tickets are still on sale for about $50. Don’t sleep on the
Floozies, don’t sleep on the funk!
