BRADENTON -- Get out to Ace's Lounge this Friday night to catch a unique local act whose one of a kind sound is gaining local acclaim. Sarasota-based fusion group Ari & the Alibis combine funk, jazz and samba with blues, soul and tango to create a memorable style of homegrown music.
The band is comprised of five talented members: Arielleh "Ari" McManus on vocals, Nicolaas Kraster on guitar, James DaBone on trombone, John Walker on drums and Gregg Voorhees on bass.
Despite having been together for less than a year, the group has already gained a regional fan base, recorded their self-titled EP and even landed a weekend gig at the House of Blues in Orlando.
The group's faster songs include elements of funk, samba and jazz. The slower songs consist of blues and soul with hints of tango. These unique combinations will take the listeners through a journey of atmosphere that ranges from a New Orleans parade to a small Southern juke joint with many stops in between.
For a great time and a unique musical experience, visit Ace's Lounge in Bradenton this Friday and check out Ari and the Alibis as they continue to develop their original style of music. The show starts at 9 and there's no cover to get in.
