Ready to get in the Expo West groove?

Turn up your speakers and prepare to move to the bands that will take the stage in March.


6-8 p.m. Thursday, March 10, Grand Plaza Main Stage

Rhythm. Energy. Soul. Get your funk on with a blend of funk, soul, afrobeat, reggae and dub. This Colorado-based band will bring the worldbeat to the opening night party. What could be better than a band one reviewer said “knows how to dance, inspire and create moving tunes that will live on in our hearts (and feet).”


The Soul Rebels

6-8 p.m. Friday, March 11, Grand Plaza Main Stage 

This eight-piece crew hails from New Orleans, bringing its big brass sound along with hip-hop, rock and jazz. The Village Voice calls them “the missing link between Public Enemy and Louis Armstrong.” No doubt you will put your hands together and find the tunes move you.


The Revivalists

6-8 p.m. Saturday, March 12, Grand Plaza Main Stage 

This seven-piece New Orleans roots-driven rock band defies categorization. Is it rock? Is it country? Is it folk? Mix in soul and funk, and maybe you are near describing this groovy group. Sway with swagger into the evening with these guys.
