The first Skunk City Notorious B.I.G. tribute was just over a year ago at the original Funk 'N Waffles in Syracuse. The show was a packed house with, as Biggie would say "sold out seats to hear Biggie Smalls speak" — not really, but close enough. To start out this tribute night, Emanuel Washington, drummer for Sophistafunk, will lead his funk-rock band Skunk City in an original set. The Level 7 Experience will also perform some of its own tracks, before the coveted third set when both bands will join together on stage to pay homage to the late B.I.G. You can expect some artful renditions of the great Biggie classics, with a full instrumentation and dedicated style.
