Biography

Through the change of music and the birth of newer styles, Freakstreet Project has stayed true to their philosophy: TO ROCK HARDER THAN EVER!
Recently nominated in the category of best Funk/R&B Westword showcase 2006, Freakstreet has been very fortunate to share the stage with "Cecil P. Daniels" and "Devon Allman and the Honey Tribes". Playing events such as PEOPLES FAIR, WORLD TIBET DAY, PEACE JAM and SPRING FESTIVALCU-DENVER, Freakstreet Project continues to wow audiences all over colorado by their intricate yet melodic harmonies, strong funk/rock driven grooves supported by powerful and soulful vocals. A style that is hard to categories, they will always give credit to the music that have highly influenced their musical direction: Funk/Jazz/Rock, a genre described by grooves and intelligent harmonies.

Horns, keyboards, guitars, bass and percussion come together to create the Freak Street sound. Though rooted firmly in funk, the band's penchant for other styles is obvious. Keyboard solos are reminiscent of Jimmy Smith. Guitar riffs maintain the signature imperative pace of funk but occasionally recall a Southern rock solo, like Dickey Betts letting loose on a hot rendition of "Melissa." The horns – obviously influenced by legend Maceo Parker-echo the free-form sounds of Charlie Parker. The drumming is high energy and on point.
