Felabration - A tribute to the music of Fela Kuti featuring Dave Watts of the Motet, members of Euforquestra and Atomga

A few of us Atomgas are playing the first installment of Felabration 2015 and it's a three day run! We did two Felabrations last year and it was a riot! Such a great time dancing to an entire evening of Fela Kuti music! 

Apr, 9th at Hodi's Half Note in Fort Collins CO

Apr. 10th at Fox Theater in Boulder CO

Apr.11th at Cervantes' Masterpiece Ballroom in Denver CO

"This is NOT your average Fela Kuti tribute! Featuring an allstar cast of musicians from the Colorado music scene (The Motet, Euforquestra, and ATOMGA), this 14 piece wall of sound (7 horns, 2 percussion, 2 guitars, keys, bass, drums) is coming together to celebrate the music of the funkiest African superstar in history. This is not just afrobeat, but a mash-up of those timeless Fela songs with funk, house, disco, and electro-rock grooves that bring a whole new energy to the music. This is the funkiest, non-stop, dance-party, throw-down that Colorado has seen in a long time....get ready to sweat!!"
