My Son the Hurricane w/ The Funky Truth
They’re back and bringing their pals The Funky Truth to take the Heartwood stage by storm. My Son the Hurricane is a 14-piece brasshop funk beast with the mantra: anything worth doing is worth overdoing.
Hailing from Niagara/Toronto, the band mixes New Orleans style grooves with funk, jazz and hiphop. Driving the show, charismatic frontman Jacob Bergsma “can playfully pluck every nerve in your body with his voice” (Earshot), while the well-oiled rhythm section including 2 trombones, sousaphone, 2 trumpets and 2 saxes creates a spectacle of sound. With this lineup, My Son the Hurricane “stood out like a sore, yet extremely talented thumb at every show they’ve played” (Pulse Niagara), and became revered for their live show.
