CONTEST: Win Tix to Water Seed live + DJ Shortkut this Friday!

Events & Nightlife, Music

May 31st, 2011

The Future Funk Starz are back!

Come check why George Porter Jr. of the legendary Meters says that Water Seed is “a band that gives [him] HOPE” this Friday, June 3rd at The Dragons Den!

Hope? What kind of hope?
Presidential hope? George Porter Jr. recently commented that, amid the
watered-down pop saturating mass media today, New Orleans’ young “future funk” band, WATER SEED, gives him hope that REAL MUSIC, real FUNK music, is alive and evolving. Have you been to a Water Seed show yet?


After Hurricane Katrina, the New Orleans funk band Water Seed took
refuge in the city of Atlanta and they have been spreading their brand
of New Orleans funk around the world ever since. The Future Funk Stars
return home for a very special night celebrating the release of their
latest follow-up to their 2008 debut, “Early for the Future.”

Infused with elements of soul, R&B and even a little hip hop,
New Orleans “future funk” band Water Seed has been making some serious
waves in Atlanta, where most of the group now splits there time, among
several other cities nationwide and overseas, thanks in part to rave
reviews on respected music sites such as AOL’s City Best, and Culture Mob. Preview / stream the album at:

After a recent three-month tour of Russia and China, as well as lots of attention from Sony Records, Water Seed settled down to record their 1st full length studio effort “Fresh.” Water Seed has been compared to
the likes of Earth, Wind & Fire, Sly & the Family Stone and
Prince. Surrounded by amazing special effects and dressed in over the
top costumes, Water Seed gives a show like no other.  Every band member is multi-talented with costumes, choreography and more than one instrument in tow.  In fact, AOL’s City Best even compared them to PRINCE when they said, “‘Fresh’ is an appropriate title for their latest album. It’s vibrant and loud, like Prince, but soulful enough to gain more than any other fast-paced R&B music.”

Water Seed will play 2 sets this Friday – come check it!
