JAZZ FUSION | My Vegan Uncle

by

No two shows are the same for the ever-developing local jazz-rock quartet My Vegan Uncle. Formed in 2017 at Roberts Wesleyan College, My Vegan Uncle performs heavy and quirky soul-funk fusion, with its talented members weaving in and out of complex chord progressions with fluidity and fervor. The light-hearted musical chemistry between the band members projects a positive energy that's palpable. Singer-songwriter Kara Fink has a warm, luscious alto voice with a fluttery vibrato similar to Grace Slick of Jefferson Airplane, while drummer Chris Ramsden, bassist Jeff Brouck, and keyboardist Parker Story puzzle together jazz soundscapes.

My Vegan Uncle will perform along with Raf's Experiment on Friday, January 18, 9 p.m. at Abilene Bar and Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. $5. 232-3230. abilenebarandlounge.com; myveganunclemusic.com
