Since their conception, eleven-piece band West End Blend has been playing their version of hip-hop, soul-funk in venues all over. Fronted by vocalist Erica Bryan and rapper/breakdancer "Tangsauce", the band pays homage to classic throwback sounds while still adding their own distinct sound and flair to their collectively-composed originals.
West End Blend boasts a full four-piece horn section, two guitars, bass, keys and percussion to boot, packing the group onto stages every night. From humble beginnings in an epic basement funk dance party, The Blend's goal has always been to bring a party atmosphere to every show and venue ever since.
In 2013, the band recorded their debut release with recording engineer Brendan Morawski (Jungle City Studios) at Telefunken Studios in South Windsor, CT. Guaranteed to please any fan of hip-hop, soul or funk, "What It's All About EP" combines these influences to create an energetic first release. Shortly following the EP, West End Blend released a music video to the title track of the record, "What It's All About" directed by Ty Morin (179 Pictures).
With no signs of slowing down, the Blend maintains a busy performance schedule with plans to record extensively over the next year. Only one thing remains certain for the band's future, West End Blend is going to keep the party going one show at a time.
