For the past 5 years world funk group Afrolicious has the second floor of Elbo Room packed and sweating to their rhythm heavy sounds. They celebrate this milestone with two nights of dancing this Thursday and Friday, April 26 and 27 along with a fresh springtime mix.
Nearly a dozen musicians meld their unique sounds for a funky set combining elements of live instruments along with DJ equipment. The typically Thursday night sets are often joined by guests from throughout the world, many who are featured along with original Afrolicious tracks on their new mix.
