Gentleman Brawlers Afrobeat Project

Gentleman Brawlers Afrobeat Project, a Brooklyn 7-Piece, are psychedelic soul revivalists known for their spooky, stylized tunes drenched in analog tape echo and spring reverb. Drawing influences from acid rock and William Onyeabor-era throwback electronica into their Afrobeat-based compositions, the 'Brawlers deliver a live show with plenty of heat, crackling energy and butt-shaking whomp. 2014 was a landmark year for the band, drawing critical acclaim in the New York and London Music Press. Brooklyn’s influential magazine The Deli listed them among their top 10 emerging New York bands, and Veteran BBC music critic Tom  Robinson offered lavish praise for the group, noting the “silken female vocals” and “micron-precision drum grooves,” Robinson went on to call the ’Brawlers “a band that will take over the world” if they manage to pen the right song. Led visually by vocalist/dancer Becca Fox’s compelling sense of stagecraft, the Gentleman Brawlers are a sight & a sound you don't want to miss!
