Immigré $10

Swirling, ostinato guitar patterns, deep, funky bass lines, and a monstrous percussion section lay the foundation for the searing melodies of the horn section, accentuated by pulsing electric piano comps. The sum total is a sound so massive, a beat so infectious, that audiences can’t sit and watch. The dance floor draws them in while the groove takes hold.

In case you haven’t caught this 10-piece Afrobeat ensemble before, if you frequent live shows around Madison, chances are good you’ve heard some of Immigré’s musicians with other groups in town. Featuring players from bands such as Youngblood Brass Band, Tani Diakite and the Afrofunkstars, The Mustache, and The Big Payback, these guys have been bringing the funk to dance floors across the Midwest for years. Now, with Immigré, the notorious Afrobeat sound has descended upon Wisconsin in a big way.
