The Funk Boat w/ Chromeo DJ Set + More
Set sail and join Crossroads out on the high seas.
We are pleased to bring you another San Francisco sunset cruise on October 21 with the legends Chromeo (DJ Set), Blair (DJ Set), Hobson and the Make It Funky crew who will be taking over the roof deck! So grab your captain's hats and dancing sea legs, because this boat will be down and dirty with all the sweet and sticky funk jams on THE FUNK BOAT!
Boarding begins at 5PM at Pier 3 on The San Francisco Belle.
ALL SALES ARE FINAL - NO REFUNDS.
World leaders, powerful CEOs, and assorted other fat cats could learn myriad lessons from Chromeo, but the number one tip that Dave 1 and P-Thugg have is this: Know thyself, know thy vibe, and stay thy course. The rest of the population will catch up. What this means is that Chromeo is really good at being Chromeo. The mission, the package, the vision -- it's been a straight shot of pure intentionality from the jump. These Chromeo dudes? They have the whole being-these-Chromeo-dudes thing totally wired.
And with the benefit of blessed hindsight, we can all see now that Chromeo stuck to it with the natural doggedness of the soulful heirs that they are. Funk a game plan -- these guys had a ten-year battle strategy. When they released their first album in 2004, Rick James was still the Antichrist to all but the enlightened. Fast forward to today, and '80s funk -- which makes up a major part of Chromeo's DNA -- is all over the charts.
Crisp, clean guitar riffs, driving drums, and keyboard synths that echo all the sexiest bits of the 80s; this is Blair, the modern rock star. Fusing together sounds from eras past, present, and future, Blair creates infectious rock n’ roll that strives for authenticity and staying power, moving your body as much as your mind. Truth in every melody, and life in every chorus – you can’t help but catch the musical vibes of Blair.
Blair is not a savior. He’s not trying to be the face of a genre, or a poster boy for your favorite scene. What he is can be found in his music – and his music kicks ass. With a single slated for release on label behemoth Atlantic Records and an album on the way, it won’t be long before Blair’s sound waves are everywhere.
A house producer/DJ based out of San Francisco, California. He recently released his first ever single titled "Clikity-Clak" in July 2017, and is currently releasing a 5 track EP as part of his duo project titled BVRLY (Hobson & CHIRCH) through August and September of 2017. He'll also be releasing his first solo EP in early 2018.
In 2016, Hobson played along side of several world recognized artists such as Aeroplane, Nora En Pure, Thomas Jack, RAC, Breakbot, Amtrac, Durante, Fred Falke, Dena Amy and Saand in San Francisco and New York.
In 2017, Hobson completed a tour in South America + America tour playing in Santiago, Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Punta Del Este, Palm Springs for a Coachella pre party, San Francisco and Puerto Rico. He also recently made his debut at the Surf Lodge in Montauk, New York in July, 2017. He has two more upcoming gigs this fall with Michael Calfan and Breakbot at Audio San Francisco.
Make It Funky (Roof Deck Take Over)
Make It Funky believes in crowd-pleasing engagement, the call and return. We believe that the funk is a vibe that goes beyond the music and beyond the party. The funk is a sort of radiation of positive energy from a person’s body, an insistent rhythm appealing to various carnal qualities. Maybe funk is the difference between a group of people playing music and a party.
Whatever it is, Make It Funky keeps it funky, but with one exception - the Funky train doesn’t go off the tracks. This train goes and goes; a churnin' urn of burnin' funk, slow without a hurry in the world; a steamrolling groove machine that’s still on time, always keeping heads nodding and two feet stepping.
