Creating vivid instrumental imagery with complex rhythms and a unique precision that redefines the term “funk” for 21st Century audiences, the 8-piece Polyrhythmics are proving to be one of Seattle’s finest exports.
Founded from a collective desire to make classic vinyl recordings, Polyrhythmics have been a defining musical force and west coast institution for the better part of a decade. With four studio albums under their belt as well as a growing pile of limited-release 7-inch 45's, the boys are back at it in 2017 working on a new full length that is scheduled for release later in the year.
2016’s LP release ‘Octagon’, as well as last summer’s blockbuster single collaboration with NW Deep Funk Pioneer Lucky Brown entitled I Believe in Love, is evidence of the band’s ever evolving studio prowess, but it is the seemingly non-stop live performance schedule that has helped make the band quickly known universally for their high energy and dance floor igniting performances. Fusing elements of afrobeat, funk, psych rock, and world music, the unparalleled musicianship and undeniable chemistry that Polyrhythmics exudes has earned the band nation-wide recognition, and their stellar original songwriting and impeccable analog album production has earned the dedication of music aficionados and vinyl collectors the world over.
This concert is part of the 5th annual Thursday Jams series, presented by Blue Ridge Beverage. Music will begin 7:00 pm each Thursday at the Abingdon Market Pavilion, with a beer garden benefitting Abingdon Main Street opening at 6:30 pm.
