Formed in 2009, marked by their high-energy performances, New Sound Underground has become a staple in the Twin Cities music scene as must-see artists. Finding their roots in a myriad of different styles ranging from jazz, funk, fusion, rock, soul, R&B, and gospel, it isn't too difficult to find a wide range of different listeners and fans.
It's this unique diversity that lead them to share the stage with such world renowned artists as The Motet, John Scofield's Überjam Band, Lettuce, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Everlast & House Of Pain, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Nigel Hall, Booker T and the MG's, and MANY MORE, as well as helped them to be able to successfully grace the stage at Paisley Park for Prince's renowned "Paisley Park: After Dark" party series, The Dakota Jazz Club (Minneapolis), and the Telluride Jazz Festival in 2013.
In 2014, New Sound Underground partnered with the legendary venue First Avenue in Minneapolis to start a new concert series called "Funk on First" and held two well attended shows that included great local bands from the up-and-coming funk/fusion/jazz scene in the Twin Cities. Be on the look out for the third installment of this exciting new series!
