Crescent Ballroom says
JERUSAFUNK is Phoenix’s first and only Klezploitation band! Conceived and birthed by Chris Del Favero and Jessie Demaree in 2010, the band is now in its third incarnation with 14 rotating members. After an intense two year adventure from Guatemala to Peru, Chris and Jessie brought back a multitude of ethnic genres they learned to fuse with their American Funk and Klezmer styles. Now armed with Salsa, Mambo, Samba, Bossa Nova, Cumbia, Afrobeat, Klezmer and Funk, the sexy psychedelic experience of Jerusafunk transcends all prior modems of culture into a Saturnalian jubilation of humanism. Last year the group hosted their own music/agriculture festival, Farm Fest, performed around the state at various music festivals (Firefly Gathering, Sharefire Fest, Sidepony Express Music Fest, Miami Loco), and recorded and released their first EP “Sweat & Glitter” with the The Paper Knife, a Tempe-based art collective bassist Molly Parker cofounded. Jerusafunk has toured with The Wavelengths, performed with folks like The Stakes, Shilo Gold, Chris Hayzel, Captain Squeegee, Foot Solejahs, Safi’s Lab, Japhy’s Descent, BLKLNTRNS, Decker, and graced the local airwaves on The Morning Infidelity Radio hour with Beef Vegan. Jeff Moses from The Modern Times names Jerusafunk as one of the best bands to watch out for in 2015, and The Phoenix New Times says, “Jerusafunk is not only one of the most original bands in town, it's one of the most fun!”
