The Palace Sessions – The Ill Funk Ensemble
Palace Theatre, the City of Albany and Mirth Films presents The Palace Sessions.
THE ILL FUNK ENSEMBLE
Tuesday, JULY 27TH at 7:00 pm
A slick mash-up of hip-hop, neo-soul, R&B and rock, The Ill Funk Ensemble has been making steady waves in the independent music scene for the last few years, culminating in a win for Best R&B/Soul artist at the Artists in Music Awards in Los Angeles, California.
Described as “soul for the masses” (Technorati.com), “airtight on all levels” (JamSphere Magazine), “brilliant” (The Signal Magazine) and “about to change the face of hip-hop music” (Indie Band Guru), Ill Funk has shared the stage with Grammy-winner Mr. Cheeks of the Lost Boyz and hip-hop legends Naughty by Nature. Perhaps their proudest moment was being given the green light by Quincy Jones himself to use a sample of song, The Streetbeater (the theme from Sanford and Son) on their own track, Bringin’ the Heat. The Ill Funk Ensemble not only make great records, they absolutely throw down live on stage.
