Marco must have had a very short set because I got there at around 7:45ish and missed the whole thing. Bernie et al brought the funk and it was free for members to boot. Any orchestra that's 30% drummers is good with me! It turns out the producer and leader is one of the drummers. They also have 2 guitars, electric bass, and alto, tenor, and trumpet. If you count up all of Bernie's keyboards, you probably could say it's 30% funky keys as well.
They started with a Bernie solo and then Charlotte Funk sang one. They did a bunch of funky stuff including a super funky tune that I love. Later they brought out Rob Swimmer on theremin for a couple. The first was a Billy Holiday tune gone a little funky. Then they really funked it up. I left just before 9 to make my way over to Brooklyn.
