West End Blend Funky Dance Party

July 8, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm UTC-4

West End Blend brings their full band for a funky dance party to Winsted, CT with their wildly popular retro-vibe. Since their origin, this CT-based funk/soul band has been playing in venues all over the Northeast and throughout the US. Fronted by vocalist Erica T. Bryan, the band pays homage to classic throwback sounds while adding their own distinct vibe and flair. Behind her, the Blend packs two guitars, a two-piece horn section, bass, keyboards and drums onto stages every night. From humble beginnings in an epic and sweaty basement dance party, The Blend’s goal has always been to bring that same atmosphere to their shows ever since.
West End Blend has shared the stage with Charles Bradley, Turkuaz, members of Snarky Puppy and Lettuce, Break Science, Kung Fu, Twiddle, Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds, The Nth Power, The Motet and countless other jam/funk staples. Their horns have also been featured as special guests with bands such as Dopapod, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Twiddle, TAUK and more.

WNPR (WHERE WE LIVE)
“When you’re right in front of West End Blend, it’s hard to not be physically blown away by their powerful sound and deep grooves.” – John Dankosky
SEVEN DAYS
“Utterly infectious and known for getting crowds on their feet and onto the dance floor, West End Blend have become a staple of both the jam and funk scenes in the region. – Jordan Adams
HARTFORD COURANT
“West End Blend sounds like the funk giants mentioned earlier (George Clinton, Earth Wind & Fire, Kool & the Gang), but it’s closer in spirit to the more recent acid jazz: the Brand New Heavies, Jamiroquai, Digable Planets and others, who pull together various strains of funk, soul, hip-hop and jazz.” – Mike Hamad
