About New Sound Underground
Minneapolis Superfunk group NEW SOUND UNDERGROUND is bringing their exciting, melody-driven instrumental music to DAKOTA LATE NIGHT.
New Sound Underground is a genre-defying, Minneapolis-based ensemble who has built a reputation around their energetic & riveting live performances, and is quickly becoming one of the most respected names among musicians & audiences alike. While their influences include such instrumental music heavyweights as Soulive, Weather Report, The RH Factor & Snarky Puppy, their music is a well-developed fusion of varied inspirations. It’s this ultimately soulful, yet inventive balance which makes their music so compelling for audiences of the most careful listeners or carefree revelers. Recent performances have had New Sound Underground around the Midwest, playing main stage the 2013 Telluride Jazz Festival (Telluride, CO), The Twin Cities Jazz Festival, Icehouse, The Triple Rock, and Prince’s Paisley Park.
