Nafsi Groove 9pm
Nafsi Groove is a Brooklyn, NY-based, soul-fusion band that jams out an eclectic set of original music. Incorporating blues, reggae, jazz, urban and groove music, we are proud to have hit upon the ideal combination of talent, passion, experience and inspiration that allows us to captivate audiences wherever we perform. Each of us, coming from vastly different cultural backgrounds, are accomplished musicians in our own right. We have all been studying, playing and performing most our lives and are ever-evolving students of the craft. After pursuing our dreams and reaching goals individually, we decided to bring our influences together and create, Nafsi Groove.
The name Nafsi (Nŏf-see) comes from the arabic word "Nafs", which means "self". This simply describes our mission to fully incorporate our whole, individual selves --mind, body, soul and spirit-- into the music, in order to create an experience that takes us and our audiences into another dimension. We look forward to making a positive impact as we travel from stage to stage.
The Brady Oh Show 10pm-12am
Coming out of the heart of rural central New York, Brady grew up with an unconditional love for classic rock, punk, and country. He took that love of rock n’ roll to college, majoring in Music Industry at Syracuse University. Upon graduating in 2008 he headed down to the City to pursue a life of music. Having been in countless bands since elementary school, Brady now co-fronts the funk punk band Hunters & Runners with fellow Jingle Punk Liam Farrell, as well as leading his own monthly residency in Brooklyn, The Brady Oh Show.
