Cape Cod, MA — July 6, 2018 — In May The GroovaLottos kicked off their summer tour in Worcester. As with last year, The Phunk Hits 2018 picks up new fans along the way.
The Phunk Hits 2018 is steadily bringing The GroovaLottos Phunk parties to audiences throughout New England as well as New York City and Washington DC. This years tour features more work from the band member and protégé The ZYG 808 whose first solo single, “The Concerto” is coming out on July 25, with his album, “The Intro” dropping in the winter. “This is what it’s about: bringing great music to the people and preparing the next generation to run the show,” said GroovaLottos drummer, Eddie Ray Johnson.
The Phunk Hits tour began in 2017 as a summer street concert tour, bringing The GroovaLottos to street corners throughout Massachusetts, with a primary focus on Cape Cod and the Southcoast. This year’s tour includes traditional venues as well as street corners and parks. According to GroovaLottos keyboardist, Mwalim, “We wanted to reach a wider audience than bars and clubs. Street corners in the height of tourist season seemed like an ideal situation.” The plan worked as the band’s sale of CDs, downloads and adds to streaming playlists skyrocketed and their debut album, “Ask Yo’ Mama” earned 4 Grammy nominations in Pop and R&B.
Don’t be surprised if one afternoon, while strolling on Commercial St in Provincetown, The Boston Common, City Hall Plaza in Hartford, Union Square Park in New York City, or the Mall in Washington DC you come upon some guys playing some really funky soul music. It just means you’ve experienced The Phunk Hits.
The Phunk Hits 2018 brings Grammy-nominated soul-funk band The GroovaLottos to streets and venues throughout the Northeast region throughout the summer and early fall.
