Deep in the midst of their 2016 Summer Tour and in support of their new album Gold Under The Glow, tropical Afropop-rockers The Hip Abduction, hailing from Saint Petersburg, Florida, played to a capacity crowd at The Funky Biscuit in Boca Raton on Friday night. The Hip Abduction drew an all-age ranging crowd from across the state of Florida and served up a delightful assortment of originals from the band’s three albums, while also mixing in well-placed covers, including Bob Marley & The Wailers‘ “Could You Be Loved”, Paul Simon‘s “Obvious Child” and culminating the evening in a raucous encore featuring Marvin Gaye‘s “Sexual Healing” out of their original “Holiday”.

Thanks to our friends at CHeeSeHeaDPRoDuCTioNS for providing full concert coverage.

Currently on rotation on SiriusXM Jam_On, the Hip Abduction closed their hour-long first set with their hit, “Come Alive”:

And finally, the band closed out the night with their original “Holiday” and concluded with Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing”:
