Darla is an 8-piece progressive funk group from Philadelphia. Self-described ‘basement blender funk,’ the band’s sound is a melding of its raw origin in the Philly basement scene and keen compositional focus on feeling the groove. At its core, the Darla sound is driven by a powerful horn section that wields a lyrical and catchy sense of phrasing. Their efforts are matched by a jarring and methodical rhythm section that has been described as ‘Steely Dan with Dave Grohl on drums.'

Aeolus White
Aeolus is a singer-songwriter whose music is, at the forefront, lyrical and honest. Rooted in soul, jazz, world and classical music, his voice is rich yet vulnerable, his writing poetic yet frank, and with every note and phrase he sings, he gets closer to rising above his fears. He sings himself free, and he writes himself whole, all the while stitching the fabric of his being into his music. He began his musical career writing original pieces for theater, most notably for a truncated production of August Wilson’s Joe Turner’s Come and Gone in Washington D.C., and has recently contributed original music to Coco, a short independent film about drug addiction. Using his songwriting background as his platform, he is launching into a career as a singer, with plans to perform and release an EP in 2017.
