Business

SRQ DAILY FRIDAY WEEKEND EDITION FRIDAY NOV 15, 2019

SCD will join forces with Reverend Barry & The Funk, an 8-pc funk band featuring a 3-pc horn section, and one of the fastest-rising “buzzworthy” acts in the state of Florida.This collaboration “will not be a Funk dance show, but instead showcase the essence of funk, groove, and boogie through a contemporary dance language,” said Leymis Bolaños Wilmott, SCD Artistic Director. The production will feature her original choreography in collaboration with the SCD dancers. The band’s live, high-energy performance features not only originals, but also true-to-the-original cover versions of funk & soul classics from Earth, Wind & Fire, Tower of Power, Prince, James Brown, Rick James, Aretha Franklin, and more. “It has always been my passion to collaborate with local musicians,” continues Bolaños Wilmott.  “This is the first time that SCD will be partnering with a funk band, and we couldn’t be more thrilled that they are already a Sarasota favorite." 

Performance Schedule: December 5–8, Thursday–Saturday @ 7:30pm, Sunday @ 2:00pm. Jane B. Cook Theatre, 5555 N. Tamiami Trl,, Sarasota.
