Lounge: Afrofunk Experience & The Whitney Myer Band
June 14, 2011
Late Night Live Tuesdays presented by bay Vibes
The Whitney Myer Band is a family band made up of Whitney Myer, father Scott Myer, Uncle Fred Myer, and Gia Torcaso. It started in the ’60’s when the two brothers picked up a few instruments and started jamming with neighborhood kids in the San Fransisco East Bay Area. Throughout the ’70’s, ’80’s and ’90’s, they played with nationally touring bands such as Dave Mason, The Commander Cody Band and more recently with The Mudsharks.
Whitney Myer possesses a style which is influenced by Funk, soul and pop, along with some R&B, brewing these musical genres together to create a distinct fusion all their own. In her early 20’s, Whitney refined that style as well as her creative vision and the group is known for their exciting live performances and excellent musicianship.
The Afrofunk Experience, recent winners for the NAACP Image Award's Outstanding World Music Album "Black President". Winners of The SF Weekly Music Award's Best International Act, have been the band behind Sila and the Afrofunk Experience for the past 5 years, providing songs and killer grooves for Victor Sila Mutungi, and being dubbed "The Bay Area's Dance Kings" in the process. This is the Afrofunk Experience Myspace page. The Afrofunk Experience has played many stages of the San Francisco festival and club scenes since 2004. We've been blessed to play the Boom Boom Room, 111 Minna The Independent, Slims, Great American Music hall, and The Mezzanine and many other live music venues in the SF Bay Area.
