New Weekly Event: Motown Mondays!
Aurora will be hosting “Motown Monday” every week, featuring local funk-rock band TRUNK + special guests. Combining psychedelic funk with 80s pop, Latin jazz with Southern rock, TRUNK is a hard-hitting power trio. Booty shakin’ bass grooves. Ferocious guitar riffs. Danceable rhythms. Lush vocal harmonies. Catchy melodies.
The trio is fairly young on the Providence scene, but comprised of all-star musicians. Avi David (guitar, vocals) has studied music and performed in Cuba, Spain, Italy, Austria, Czech Republic, India, Nepal and across the USA. He performs regularly with the award-winning Extraordinary Rendition Band. Matt Caplan (drums, vocals) is a songwriter, percussionist and vocalist and has performed extensively around the region with various rock, funk, jazz, folk and dance bands. Jacob Morton (bass, vocals) is relatively new to Providence, but spent the past decade as a touring bass guitarist, performing around the world and sharing the stage with entertainers including Nine Inch Nails, Common, Mr. Big, Gnarls Barkley, Damian Marley and Collective Soul.
Motown Mondays at Aurora will combine TRUNK originals with Motown hits, Funk-Soul-R&B classics, Blues and Jazz standards. TRUNK will open the stage throughout the evening and invite guest musicians to jam. The band will alternate live sets with Funk/Soul-oriented DJs.
Music starts at 8pm. Free Admission. Drink Specials. Guests invited to bring instruments!
