Boston's premier afrofunk outfit, the Microtones, return to the Lizard Lounge tonight along with raucous and improvisatory Dingonek Street Band who make their LL debut!

Boston's premier afrofunk outfit, the Macrotones, have been launching explosive dance parties for nearly a decade. The 9-piece, horn-driven ensemble is steeped in funk, afrobeat, cinematic soul, ethiojazz, rock, and more, resulting in dark, interlaced rhythms and progressive arrangements. The bands tightly-honed grooves and infectious sound has shared the stage with like-minded practitioners such as the Budos Band, Grupo Fantasma, the Funk Ark, Big Mean Sound Machine, Ikebe Shakedown, Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars, and Barika, and is in good company with fellow instrumentalists Brownout, Jungle Fire, the Menahan Street Band, and the Shaolin Afronauts. Since typical genre descriptions fail to fully capture the scope of the Macrotones sound, new monikers need exploration: imperial funk, astrobeat, or even a soundtrack for spies all fit. For those looking for a distinctive take on funk, afrobeat, and global groove, the Macrotones are the thunderous answer.

Their latest CD, Unknown Outpost, with Boston Music Award-winner and Grammy-nominated engineer and producer Benny Grotto at the helm,  features guest vocalists on a number of songs, including emerging star Iyeoka.

THE DINGONEK STREET BAND IS A RAUCOUS, IMPROVISATORY BRASS BAND FUSING AFROBEAT AND ETHIO-JAZZ WITH POST-BOP, FUNK, AND NEW ORLEANS PARADE MUSIC.
Influenced by diverse sources from Fela Kuti to Primus to the Art Ensemble of Chicago, the Dingonek strives to lead the unsuspecting masses into the depths of the sonic wilderness, where anything is possible and good times are guaranteed to be had by all.

Driven by tuba bass, marching bass drum, and afro-latin percussion, this five-horn acoustic powerhouse is in its element whether on stage or in the streets.
