The one-man electro funk act Papa Josh will perform June 5 at the Emerald of Siam in Richland.
The local funk/jazz trio Wabi Sabi also will play.
The show starts at 9 p.m. Cost is $3.
Papa Josh, who’s based in Seattle, is a Roland National Loop Competition champion. “From old school funk riffs to the pulsing dub electro sounds of today, Papa Josh busts out a profusion of sounds and shoves them deep into the tightest of pockets. Sweaty dance floor bliss and virtuosic instrumentalism sizzle with the sound of gritty vocal lyricism,” a news release said.
“Utilizing the latest technology from DJ oriented electronic music, Papa Josh performs, records, loops and sequences guitar, bass, keys, vocals, electronic percussion and effects to create an irresistible dance party experience,” the release said.
Wabi Sabi features Dara Quinn on keyboards, Justin Chapman on bass and Kedrick Nobles on drums.
The Emerald of Siam is at 1314 Jadwin Ave.
