Sofy Encanto and Elastic Bond, Upstairs at The Van Dyke Tonight

​You already know we love Elastic Bond, don't you? I mean, we compared them to the Fugees passed through a cafetera and spiked with psychedelics a few months back. We dubbed them Best Funky Fusion Band Even Your Mom Would Like in our 2007 Best Of Miami. What more do you need to know? Do we really need to keep singing their praises?

Perhaps not. But I'm doing it anyway, if for no other reason than it's nice to be reminded now and again that you're loved. At least that's what my therapist says.

Elastic Bond blend electronica with Latin and urban sounds, providing lush and sumptuous grooves caressed by singer Sofy Encanto's smooth-as-silk vocals -- the ideal soundtrack for a hell of a good time. And in case you were unaware, the songstress, who also partakes in the Monkey Village collective, does it up solo too, doing loungey neo-soul some serious justice. For a chance to check out both acts in tandem, head Upstairs at The Van Dyke tonight. It's free...minus whatever damage you do at the bar.
