FUNK | Holy Hand Grenade


Brooklyn-based band Holy Hand Grenade blends a mix of jazz, soul, and hip-hop to make a "new music collective inspired by world-grooves and memorable melodies," as the band itself puts it. The group employs both tenor and soprano saxophones and a prominent, soulful bassline for an exciting, tight jam. The group's self-titled debut EP ranges in tempo, from slow and relaxed to more upbeat, keeping the music engaging and smooth with afro-funk elements. Rochester group The Uptown Groove will also perform.

Holy Hand Grenade will perform Wednesday, August 23, at Funk 'N Waffles Music Hall, 204 North Water Street. 8 p.m. $10.;
