NMF: SoNar

High energy, youthful passion, and original song-writing is what this high elevation funk and jazz infused Ska rock band is all about. Hailing from Durango, CO, the group met a Fort Lewis College and started playing together in 2011. They have played at the 2012 Banditos Biker Rally and local bars and clubs. They self-recorded their first album, SoNar Libra, which is a play on words for “so gnarly bra.” At times metal and at times pop, there is always plenty of horns and energetic beats. The band will go on tour together for the first time this summer, culminating their trip with trumpet player Kelly Emery’s hometown of Nantucket for the NMF. To get a sense of their style, check out their music video “Durango Zombies March” on Facebook.
