Cleveland’s native sons Broccoli Samurai made fans of Rick and Morty, the hit Adult Swim animated series, take notice at the recent Funk Fest in Punta Gorda when they laid down a spot-on cover of the enormously successful show’s theme song, a tune which has been in their live rotation for some time now. The song was slipped into the middle of their well-received set at the Florida festival just as a spectacular sunset gave them a beautiful backdrop to play against. Broccoli Samurai is no stranger to the festival stages, as they have notched dozens of appearances around the country since their founding in 2010.
In addition to several strong selections from their original repertoire, the band also slipped a second cover into their set in the form of Lotus‘s Nomad track “Greet The Mind”. You can see videos of Broccoli Samurai’s Rick and Morty theme and their rendition of “Greet The Mind” below:
