FunkCity.net Does North Beach: Electric Kif

Jake Funkmayor of FunkCity.net caught some great video at North Beach Music Festival December 10 & 11 in Miami. Here is his video of Electric Kif along with our review and photographs courtesy of slightly skewed photography. Electric Kif play this weekend at No Resolutions Festival in north Florida.

The South Florida parade continued with a great set from prog rockers Electric Kif, although they do a lot more than that. The quartet were augmented by Brian Potts, a percussionist who leads Miami Bloco, all set. They were also joined mid-set by Gabriel Policarp, who plays repinique, a two-headed Brazilian drum. Along with drummer Armando Lopez, this was a percussion orgy. The set blew up when The Horn Section joined them for my two favorite tunes they perform: Herbie’s “Hang Up Your Hang Ups” and the original “Labrats.” Everybody was brilliant, and Schwartz positively dazzled on baritone.
