Nik Greeley & The Operators have released a brand new video for their soul-rocking single “Sunba,” recorded live in the studio at Drexel University Philadelphia, PA. The Operators feature Philly’s own Swift Technique “The ST’s” horn section, along with Zach LoPresti of prog-jam up-and-comers Out of the Beardspace, guitarist Zack Smith, bassist Kenny Vincent, drummer Joe Baldacci, and vocalist Robyn Mello of Edenspore. Together, and behind the musical maestro Nik Greeley himself, is a smooth-grooving collective that fully avoids staying in any one genre.
“Written with the inspiration of the Golden State in my eyes, ‘Sunba’ speaks to the passion & oddly everlasting feeling of infatuation. Share this song with someone you love!” urges songwriter Zach LoPresti. In celebration of this release, the band has also shared a new batch of fall tour dates with funk and soul powerhouse West End Blend. Together, the show is expected to deliver high volumes of funk, extreme balance of soul, and energetic showmanship on both ends.
Nik Greely & The Operators will perform King of Prussia Beer Festival at KOP Mall (King of Prussia, PA) on October 7th and Milkboy with Andy Frasco & The U.N. on October 13th, before joining up with West End Blend for a north eastern tour. The co-tour will see the two bands hit Martin’s in Roanoke, Virginia, One Stop in Asheville, NC, Crossbones in Greenville, NC, The Whiskey in Wilmington, NC, Tipsy Music Pub in Greenville, SC, before returning for a hometown throwdown at Milkboy mid-November.
