Fat Tuesday at the Turf Club
HENNEPIN COUNTY MILLIONAIRES CLUB
The Hennepin County Millionaires Club is a 7-piece band from Minneapolis. Drawing from a wide variety of influences, “HCMC” incorporates elements of rock and roll, country, ska, pop, reggae, New Orleans, funk, and soul. Despite having a great breadth of influence, it’s difficult to say that any of those genres would accurately describe their music. Their sound is original and unique, but remains cohesive and catchy, with a general pop sensibility. Instrumentation includes a 3-piece horn section, 2 guitars, bass, keyboards, drums, and vocals. All of which are featured prominently throughout the music.
PURPLE FUNK METROPOLIS
Purple Funk Metropolis is a charismatic six-piece band with a lively sound inspired by rock, jazz, and old-school soul. With driving melodies at the forefront of the groove they build the party from the ground up with every performance. Whether in a Como basement or a downtown dive bar, Purple Funk’s energy notoriously gets the whole room dancing.
