On February 24th, 2014, Rock Candy Funk Party will follow up last year’s debut album "We Want Groove" with Rock Candy Funk Party "Takes New York - Live at the Iridium" – a live DVD/Blu-ray package featuring over 100 minutes of music and a 30-minute documentary, and an exclusive live companion double CD, all filmed and recorded at the legendary Iridium Jazz Club in Times Square, New York City.
With its reboot of classic 70s & 80s jazz-funk, Rock Candy Funk Party (RCFP) delivers a sound that’s as celebratory as the name suggests. Powered by a line-up of world renowned players including album producer Tal Bergman (drums), Joe Bonamassa (guitar), Ron DeJesus (guitar), Mike Merritt (bass), Renato Neto (keys) and Daniel Sadownick (percussion), the band came together for the sheer fun of making music, and a mutual love of genre-blurring grooves.
Rock Candy Funk Party "Takes New York - Live at the Iridium" features eight live renditions of original tracks from "We Want Groove" that mash up funk, jazz and rock with virtuoso musicianship, as well as four cover songs including "Mr. Clean" (Weldon Irvine), "One Phone Call" (Miles Davis) and two by Herbie Hancock – "Heartbeat" and "Steppin’ in It".
