Hot Afrobeat, Jazz & Funk
with The Brighton Beat
Afrobeat, Jazz & Funk
12 Grapes Music & Wine Bar
12 North Division Street
Peekskill, NY   See Map
"Bright-On! Get out of your comfort zone and into a new groove with The Brighton Beat. Every song takes the listener to a new world, where the natives are happy. It's a Jazz evolution, not the same old Afro-Beat business. If The Brighton Beat doesn't sound like any other band you've heard, you're right." - Iconoclast Magazine

NYC / Boston's freshest Afrobeat-Jazz group, The Brighton Beat is a positive Afrobeat force, aimed at getting the crowd dancing and bootys shaking. Heavily influenced by Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti, but in no way traditional, the group creates grooves reminiscent of Herbie Hancock, at times reaching the raw, unbridled expression found in the music of Miles Davis and Freddie Hubbard.

In addition to outstanding musicianship, the group adds another level of instrumentation to their Jazz-meets-Afrobeat style by way of unique vocalizations. The energy and enthusiasm this band brings to the stage unparalleled.
