Funk, soul, hip hop to help bring ‘First Friday’ alive

A city-sponsored program to promote local talent is returning to the KiMo Theatre during Downtown Albuquerque’s “First Friday” Oct. 5 at 6:30 p.m., featuring headliner Bandwidth No Name.

The seven-person group delivers a vibrant fusion of funk, hip-hop and soul, organizers of Live & Local said in a news release.

Bandwidth No Name was one of two favorites that performed at Show Up.

The opening act will be Dee Brown, described as part pianist, part vocalist, part emcee, who mixes message and musicality reminiscent of John Legend and Stevie Wonder, organizers said.

Doors open at 6 p.m. The Michocarnaria food truck and Boese Brothers Brewing will be onsite.

Tickets are $5 per person and are available at www.kimotickets.com.

The event will be recorded and broadcast at a later date on local cable channel GOV TV 16 and will also be available on YouTube.

Bandwidth No Name is made up of Nick Furious, Epic Beats and Mary Stockton (vocals); Sean Smock (bass); Kookie Jones (guitar and keys); Jonathan Grimes (saxophone and keys); and Charis Hurst (drums).
