The People UpStairs CD-Release Party at Bamboo Room

The People Upstairs have gained momentum as a band since they formed almost ten years ago at Atlantic High School in Delray. The members were all part of the drum line and decided to take their rhythmic activity from the football field to the garage just for fun. Since then, they've amassed a substantial catalog of original material and have gained a devoted following by jamming out their highly danceable, Latin-tinged funk-rock tunes all over the state in various settings, including some big festival gigs.

In 2010, the band played SunFest and was awarded Best Local Band to play the event, and this past November, it played to a big, spirited audience at Lake Worth's Bonfire on the Beach event. Recently the quartet completed its sophomore album, For the People, By the People, with the help of Rob Norris at Saturn Sound Studios in West Palm Beach. To celebrate the release, the People will rock the Bamboo Room with good friends and fellow good-vibers Moska Project.
