From our performance in Chicago, September 2013 with Mark Ford and Mamadou Mbengue
On Friday, September 20, at
Noon 2:00 PM, The OP will take over Daley Plaza in downtown Chicago with 11 pieces of W. African Funk.
The scene: WurstFest, A Culinary Event to support the Chicago Music Summit
Local Food, Local Brews, Local Music!
We’re joined by special guests Mark Ford on vocals and Mamadou Mbengue on Talking Drum!
[ UPDATE: ] The time of the show has been changed to 2:00 PM.
On Friday, June 21, the Opposition Party and Kongfuzi descend on Lincoln Square Lanes to put their new live music stage through its paces. Hopefully the bowlers will still be able to hear the clatter of pins with our 11 pieces filling the joint with joyful afrobeat sounds. We welcome vocalist Mark Ford for this show as well!
10 pm. No cover!
KFAI’s Dr. StrangeDub had our dub of our tune, Puncture, on his radio show last night!
…is a gem. What else is there to say? Enjoy.
Here are a couple of live tracks from last fall to keep the appetite whet until the spring:
Colonial Mentality from Chicago SummerDance
with Mark Ford and Typhanie Monique
Nimble Foot Ska from Northcenter Fest
Happy Holiday / New Year / Valentine’s Day!
The Opposition Party has been hard at work since the fall, workin up more material for our amazing new vocalists, Mark Ford and Typhanie Monique. We’ll let you know about festivals and gigs coming up in the spring soon. In the meantime, stay tuned!
