Afroskull’s 15th Anniversary Celebration Part 2 – NYC + costume contest!

Wednesday, October 17th, 2012

15 years later, the monster rages on in New York City. Join us for two sets of jams and surprises as we kick off Halloween weekend and celebrate a decade and a half of funkin’ it up. Featuring special guest vocalists Joe Trombino from the Great Apes, Craig Schoenbaum from OTiS and Angel Eduardo from Blue Food!

AND… as if two long and funky sets and special guests aren’t enough to get you in the Halloween spirit, we are pleased to announce our first (and perhaps last) costume contest! Fully funded by an eccentric recluse who believes ‘you have to spend money to lose money’, we will be offering cash prizes to the best and most creative you’ve got. ($100 Grand Prize + more!!)

15 Years of Monster Funk!!

Afroskull’s 15th Anniversary Celebration – October 6th at the Maple Leaf in New Orleans

Saturday, August 4th, 2012

It has been 15 years since Afroskull, the original monsterfunksters, first took it to the stage in uptown New Orleans. Come celebrate this milestone with us back where it all started, at the world famous Maple Leaf Bar. Founding members Joe Scatassa, Bill Richards and Jason Isaac will be joined by a few of their most fiendishly funky friends to bring you two sets jam packed with a decade and a half’s worth of progressive funk-rock.

Were the Mayans right? Could THIS be the end? Find out October 6th at the Maple Leaf!

We’re taking it easy …
