With a cult like following in the punk scene that may have something to do with their tours with Frank Turner and The Smith Street Band, Koo Koo Kanga Roo is one of those bands that my friends think I’m crazy for obsessing over but, as soon as I take them to one of their shows, it makes sense. The amount of fun you have just letting loose to their quirky lyrics is something that I’ve never found the right words for.

About Koo Koo Kanga Roo

Koo Koo Kanga Roo is the dance-a-long show from Bryan and Neil, two friends who set out to experiment with live music and make it more fun. Armed with nothing more than an iPod, two mics, one giant rainbow and some gold sneakers, Koo Koo Kanga Roo puts on an all-ages dance party that invites everyone to join in. Whether you know them from "brain break" videos in your classroom, the Warped Tour or a late night bar show, you’ve probably gotten sweaty dancing to their jams at some point.

Since 2008, Koo Koo Kanga Roo have been touring and putting on shows at clubs, theaters, schools, bars, colleges, church basements, dumpsters and even nursing homes. The duo has toured stateside and internationally with the likes of Frank Turner, The Aquabats, Reel Big Fish, MC Lars, Yo Gabba Gabba Live and have been featured on the Vans Warped Tour.

About Purple Funk Metropolis


Purple Funk Metropolis is a charismatic six-piece instrumental band with a lively sound inspired by rock, jazz, funk, and old-school soul. With driving melodies at the forefront of the groove they build the party from the ground up with every performance. Whether in a Como basement or a downtown dive bar, Purple Funk's energy notoriously gets the whole room dancing.

From the raw energy of “Morsels” (May 2017) to the explosive, vintage sounds of “Mumbojumbotron” (July 2018) and the artisan-woven “Magic Carpet” (December 2018), the many flavors of Purple Funk leave your palette cleansed and thirsty for more.

Currently in the studio working on new tunes, rest assured PFM is always keeping it silly, keeping it light, keeping it funky, keeping it tight.

Keep your eyes peeled for new happenings.
