Danielle Ponder and the Tomorrow People will be making a stop at the Downtown Syracuse Funk N Waffles on July 16. Ponder, a Rochester native, offers a transcendent mix of powerful groove and soul music with gospel roots.
Ponder and the Tomorrow People was named one of the “Top Ten Bands to Watch” by CityPaper and was the winner of the 2015 Roc Awards, “Best Local Band.” Ponder and her band are currently on tour in support of their 2016 EP release Blow Out the Sun.
Ponder has been described as having a “riveting and honest” stage presence. Ponder describes her live shows as an interactive experience, “When I get on stage I want the audience to be just as important as the musicians. I want to hear them, feel them and see them dancing and moving.” The Funk N Waffles show starts at 9 p.m. and tickets are still available here.
