As many of you know, Johnny one of our talented music directors and host of “Freedom for the Funk” has been on vacation for about a month. I Am Your Villian and Johnny collaborated to bring sweet Miami DJ’s to grace our airwaves with their own personal funk collections. Amber and DJ Manuvers have hosted the show with Manuvers and Joel Meinholz coordinating weekly DJ’s. Every week brings some new flavor to WVUM, whether it be Mr. Brown with Brazilian Funk, Tom Laroc brining in rare records, Induce doing his thaaang, or most recently, bringing in live bands. As host of Electric Kingdom, I’ve had my share of like 6 people packed into our studio before, but not including a bass guitar, drums, keyboard, sax, large monitor, a mixer, and a turntable. ANNDDDD a full drum set in our hallway. It was quite a night on August 3 during Freedom for the Funk, indeed. Ketchy Shuby graced our studios with their live nu-funk sound. It sounded so good in here, it prompted Manuvers girlfriend Sammy to text him and ask if it was a live song or a recorded one….LIVE BABY.

They have a great sound and really play well with eachother. Danny of Ketchy Shuby explained during the show that they were friends before they started the group, so it’s really easy to play together. The name ‘Ketchy Shuby’ originates from a Peter Tosh song & is a Jamaican game similar to Cricket. Ketchy Shuby is releasing two albums in the fall, so keep your eyes peeled.
Upcoming shows include:
11/5/10 CULTURE ROOM in Ft. Lauderdale
