Having raised $63,000 in a collective 90 days of crowd-funding, it’s obvious that KCLR’s supporters believe in the band’s commitment to creating fresh and soul clapping music while inspiring both budding new musicians and old school music lovers alike. KCLR’s current mission is to spread this passion around the world. This summer, the KCLR Go West tour brought the band’s unique blend of funk, jazz, rock and urban elements to new crowds from Edmonton to Los Angeles.
Drawing comparisons to The Roots, Jamiroquai and Janelle Monae, the band has regularly shared the stage with major international artists including Lettuce, soul legend Lee Fields, Five Alarm Funk, Naturally 7, DJ Q-Bert, Z-Trip and Blue King Brown. The recent tour gave the band an opportunity to show new fans across North America why TD Toronto Jazz Festival Artistic Director, Josh Grossman, calls KCLR “scary good…a blast to hear and just as fun to watch.”
