    Known as KCLR to diehard fans, this seven-piece band has established a signature sound that integrates the musical traditions of funk, jazz and soul with contemporary influences like hip-hop, house, electronic and drum ‘n’ bass. The group performs with boundless energy, and a driving rhythm that often has audiences on their feet and dancing.
