Broca’s Area, Connecticut’s 2015 best new band and best R&B/soul/funk group, is on tour and ravaging cities up and down the East Coast this summer. Major stops included in their travels are Funk ‘N Waffles Downtown in Syracuse, City Beer Hall in Albany and Rockwood Music Hall in New York City.
This four-piece future soul band hails from Hartford and features a fresh mix of R&B, soul and hip-hop with a multi-dimensional twist of jazz. Mary Corso leads this ensemble with her deeply warm vocals reminiscent of the classic school of neo-soul. Tying the rhythm section together is Leo Catricola on bass guitar and Steve Cusano on drums with Mike Carabello on keyboards and synths.
For select shows, Broca’s Area has invited other artists to share the stage with them, including Thunder Body, Jimkata and Midnight Snack. Fans and music enthusiasts can find more information on their website along with some music, photos and official videos.
