To ring in 2018, the funk-fusion pioneers of The New Mastersounds will host a special New Year’s Eve celebration in New York City presented by CEG and Live For Live Music. Billed as a Phish after-party, after our favorite foursome from Vermont tears up Madison Square Garden during their own New Year’s Eve show, funk fans can head over to Irving Plaza to catch The New Mastersounds in action. This special New Year’s Eve performance and Phish after-party is slated to kick off at 2 am, ensuring that the music keeps rockin’ until the early hours of 2018 and offering a truly proper way to ring in the new year.
Direct from Leeds, England, for almost twenty years, The New Mastersounds have been defining the future of funk music. The British four-piece—composed of guitarist Eddie Roberts, bassist Pete Shand, drummer Simon Allen, and keys player Joe Tatton—has released over a dozen albums, including ten studio recordings, and earned fans globally for their tight infusion of jazz and funk. The band has earned accolades both in the U.S. and the U.K., with the group having performed with funk pioneers like George Porter Jr. of The Meters, Galactic, Papa Mali, and more.
