Strike Iron (formerly Albino Afrobeat) returns to Elbo Room with its behemoth 12 piece ensemble on Friday, March 24th! Also performing will be Will Magid (of Alligator Spacewalk, Smoked Out Soul) with his latest creation, Balkan Bump.
After a period of metamorphasis, Strike Iron has re-emerged in full force with its unique blend of Afrobeat, Funk, Jazz Fusion, and Avant Garde sensibilites. The band will feature a suite of brand new original music by musical director and all around mad scientist Michael Mark Bello (of Ernest Ranglin, Phil Lesh and Friends). Consisting of a six piece horn section, three percussionists, two guitars, and electric bass, be prepared for face melting, booty shaking, and the thickest of grooves all night long.
