latin funk afro soul
That soothing yet profound fire in your Soul. The feeling of elevation, but with a deep-rooted Culture. Now imagine mixing that with a strong hit of Funk, chopping up a little Jazz, a steady (HEAVY) shake of Afro-Beat, and served in a Cuban Cigar smoked glass. This cocktail of flavors is what we call T E Q U I L A F U N K.
We are a family of Musicians and Artists that can vary from a 6-15 person ensemble and you never know what surprise guest will be joining us. You are guaranteed a unique experience every time.
dreamy indie rock
La Fonda is an indie rock band from Seattle fronted by Filipino-American sisters, Valerie and Veronica Topacio.
Centering their songs around themes of sisterhood and navigating the chaos of adolescence, addiction, xenophobia, and gentrification––to name a few––La Fonda creates sonically atmospheric, shoegaze-inspired tracks falling somewhere between dream-pop and alt-rock.
Hailing from the birthplace of grunge, Black, queer-fronted trio Black Ends belong to a subgenre of their own creation. Not quite psych-rock and definitely not indie, they established their elusive, sprawling sound on the 2019 EP Stay Evil, proving themselves to be completely unlike any band in the contemporary Pacific Northwest DIY scene.
