This past summer, Bo Triplex and His Beautiful Band performed at Sofar Sounds: Milwaukee's One Year Anniversary show. The show was held at an inconspicuous location in the 5th Ward of Milwaukee. The audience was chosen exclusively by Sofar Sounds and the featured bands, allowing an intimate performance. Bo Triplex and His Beautiful Band is a Milwaukee-based funk group fronted by Bo Triplex on vocals and bass. Other members of the group include Alyssa Sylvester on vocals, Jack Beyler on the guitar, and Jake Diaz on drums.
Sofar Sounds is a global organization that offers artists and music fans the unique opportunity to perform and experience secrete gigs in atypical venues, such as warehouses or living rooms. They currently hosts shows in over 83 cities worldwide, including New York, Paris, Berlin, Sydney, and Sao Paulo. The mission is dedicated to bringing the best of new music to unplugged and private locations.
The show brought them in to an enthusiastic and focused crowd. The funk project is known for stirring their audience and encouraging them to "get down". Yet, the show required a silent and seated audience in order to obtain the proper video footage. Still, audience members could not resist tapping and bobbing their heads to the catchy and soulful melodies offered by Bo Triplex.
The group was grateful for the chance to show their fans a different side of the band. Triplex explained, "Sofar gave me a chance to take the attentive audience in the journey with me". With further examination of the lyrical content in his songs, it becomes more apparent that a clear story line is in effect. However, we are still trying to sort out the chronology of them.
Today Sofar Sounds Premieres a video from this performance. Watch "Thump-tastic" by Bo Triplex and His Beautiful Band below.
