On Thursday April 24th, Columbus based funk group SassafraZ will perform live at Stanley’s Pub (323 Stanley Ave) with IndigoSun (Chicago) and Swift Technique (Philadelphia/Brooklyn). SassafraZ has played Cincinnati many times, including their headlining show at the Madison Theater, Frazzle Town! With 2 guitars, bass, drums, 4 keyboards, and 2 horn players, SassafraZ already has a rather difficult time fitting on stage at Stanley’s (but it’s such a great bar that they do it anyway). Swift Technique is a power funk group with 9 members of their own. IndigoSun is an electronic neo-soul group that also has a lot of equipment and more horn players! This could possibly break the record for most equipment and players to ever play at Stanley’s on the stage at the same time! Read more
