Syracuse-based Sophistafunk, the product of three multi-talented musicians—Adam Gold, Jack Brown and Emanuel Washington—combines spoken word artistry, ‘old-school’ hip-hop and funky rhythms to create a dynamic and eclectic live band experience. The trio explores electronic dance grooves while infusing each tune with soul and positively charged lyrics. Sophistafunk has performed at a variety of famed music venues including The Blue Note Jazz Club and the Brooklyn Bowl (NYC), The Boom Boom Room (San Francisco), The Belly Up (Aspen); and has supported a number of widely-respected artists, including Soulive, G. Love, Foreigner, Trombone Shorty, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, EOTO and Marco Benevento.
