Fresh off the release of their funky new single “Still Waiting,” the seven-piece Minneapolis funk band PHO is proud to announce their first-ever run of shows in Colorado, planned for June 2017.
PHO’s energetic live shows are well-known in the midwestern cities of Minneapolis, Chicago, Milwaukee, and Madison, WI, but their journey to Colorado marks the band’s maiden voyage to the Western US. With a rapidly growing fan base, the time is right for PHO to bring their updated take on the classic Minneapolis sound to one of the country’s most thriving jam scenes.
The four-night run brings PHO to the popular Fox Theatre in Boulder; Cervantes’ Other Side in Denver; Hodi’s Half Note in Fort Collins; and the Beanstalk Music & Mountain Festival, where they proudly share a lineup with Fruition, Cory Henry of the Grammy Award winning band Snarky Puppy, Reed Mathis & Electric Beethoven, the Magic Beans, and many more. Joining PHO on the Colorado run is the seven-piece jazz & soul band from Dallas, The Funky Knuckles. A full list of shows is below.
A young and growing band, PHO has been proving their funky prowess to the national music scene with powerful live shows that keep crowds dancing, and they’ve done it alongside big names in the business, including The Motet, Dopapod, Dumpstaphunk, TAUK, and many more. PHO has been gaining fans with every show they play, but the band made an unexpected fan in the winter of 2016. Prince caught a live performance of the band from their YouTube page, which prompted an invite to open for Larry Graham (Graham Central Station) at the iconic Paisley Park in Chanhassen, MN.
PHO’s second album, two, produced by John Davis (FLY - Lettuce, Blood from a Stone - Eric Krasno Band, Introducing Nigel Hall - Nigel Hall) and featuring Kirk Johnson of Prince’s New Power Generation on percussion will be out this May. Check out the first two singles from their new album at the Soundcloud.
