Afrobeat in Bend: Chicago Afrobeat Project Hits Silver Moon

The eight-piece afrobeat collective, Chicago Afrobeat Project, hits Bend, Oregon.

Posted By on Fri, Nov 5, 2010 at 4:48 PM

After you've got your fill of art walk around downtown Bend and the Old Mill District tonight and laughed your face off at Central Oregon's Last Comic Standing, head over to the Silver Moon, that is, if you want to dance.

The Chicago Afrobeat Collective will be on hand, all eight of them, and will pump out some tracks that will rattle the walls of the cozy Greenwood Ave. taproom.  The band has a blistering horn section and plenty of rhythm to go along with a sound that's somewhat of a blend of West African and contemporary sounds. Show kicks off 9pm and is $10 at the door. 21 and up.

Check out the band in action at this 2009 show.
