Fresh off an amazing East Coast run in September, Chicago Afrobeat Project journeys westward to the coast this fall with stops in Denver, Salt Lake, Portland, San Francisco, Seattle and many more funky cities. Some of the highlights will surely be Felabration in Denver, CO on Saturday 10/18 as well as the the Jungle Cross Warehouse party at Deschutes Brewery in Bend, OR on Saturday, November 1, not to mention all of the killer stops in between. Our friends The Earful join for a couple shows in Santa Cruz and Mill Valley, CA, and The Chickens will be opening up in Salt Lake City.

We will see you at da show!

TONY ALLEN is Featured Guest on 8-City Summer/Fall Tour

TonyAllen_2011_02_PPAnd so it’s official: drummer TONY ALLEN and Chicago Afrobeat Project will reunite for an 8-city tour this summer/fall in the Midwest and East Coast. Last summer’s chemistry felt so great during the studio recording that we decided to collaborate again and book an entire tour. We will hit you with some of the newly recorded material, and there will be a few surprises with even NEWER material. The yet-to-be-titled album is set for release in early 2015.

Tony helped make afrobeat an iconic landmark on the global music scene, and we excited to be a part of this history.
