Afrolicious
Afrolicious
Afrolicious, the live/electronic collective based in the San Francisco Bay Area started out not as a band but as a club night at the famed Elbo Room in The Mission District in 2007. The format of Afrolicious party was very open and included the DJs spinning the latest soulful dance music including Afro-House, broken beat, modern funk and disco alongside classics and re-edits and remixes of their favorite Afrobeat, Salsa, and Brazilian funk alongside live percussionists and guest MCs and musicians. Eventually morphing into a live band led by the production and arrangement skills of Pleasuremaker, many dancers, DJs and producers began to take notice of their unique sound.

Being hailed as “Denver’s newest party band” is a hefty responsibility. Luckily, no task seems too great for Denver’s 11-piece afrobeat outfit, ATOMGA to take on.

Founded in 2011, ATOMGA is already a planet-sized force taking the scene by storm. Using afrobeat as its foundation, the band is not afraid to take chances while staying true to their authentic roots--and it’s working. When ATOMGA take
s the stage, it depicts organized chaos at its finest. With every performance, you get a 4-piece power-packed horn section, a steadfast percussion trifecta, a deep-groving rhythm section, and solid, engaging soloists. Every show turns into a booty-shaking dance party that leaves audiences exhausted from moving, but still craving more.

Over the past year, ATOMGA has supported Seun Kuti & Egypt 80, See-I (featuring members of Thievery Corporation), Juno What?!, The Pimps of Joytime and Balkan Beat Box. They have performed at Cervantes’ Masterpiece Ballroom, The Boulder Theater, Belly Up - Aspen, Ullrs Tavern, Summit Music Hall, Desert Rocks Music Festival and are already becoming a staple in the Colorado and regional festival circuit. ATOMGA has received positive acclaim from publications including Denver Westword, Listen Up Denver, Intity Weekly and Mountain News Weekly.

ATOMGA continues to hone their craft with no inkling of complacency while continuing their “kick the audience in the face” momentum. With an unyielding desire to share the infectious energy their music has to offer, ATOMGA will continuously connect your mind, body and soul.
