Kung Fu is coming into 2017 hot with a huge national tour titled “The Fez Tour”. This will be a 2 night experience that involves one night of original music and one night of material from the cult phenomenon, Steely Dan.
The music of Steely Dan is a perfect vehicle for Kung Fu. Best described from The Rolling Stone Encyclopedia of Rock And Roll – “Less a band than a concept, Steely Dan was one of the most advanced, successful, and mysterious pop units of the 1970s. Combining pop hooks with jazz harmonies, complicated time changes and cryptic, often highly ironic lyrics, the band sounded like no one else.”
Kung Fu’s virtuoso collective of musicians create a fun and exciting action-packed fusion experience. The Steely Dan catalogue will be a unique journey for fans of the Fu.
Proud to be firmly installed in the new-funk movement, KUNG FU is quickly popularizing their unique sonic contribution, blurring the line between intense electro-fusion, and blistering dance arrangements. Making fusion music "cool" again, the band draws on influences such as early Headhunters and Weather Report, and merges those ideas with a contemporary EDM informed sensibility. Imagine 70's funk-fusion meets a modern dance party!
