New Mastersounds: Tour w/ Logic

The New Mastersounds To Tour The South with DJ Logic and Moon Taxi

The New Mastersounds
Coming off of a successful west coast run supporting the March 10 release of their new album Plug & Play, The New Mastersounds are pleased to announce an east coast album release tour.

The New Mastersounds will kick off their tour in Asheville, NC making their way south for a headlining show at House of Blues in New Orleans during the second weekend of Jazzfest. Along the way they will be paired with DJ Logic and Moon Taxi. Although NMS's music is widely popular amongst the DJ culture this will mark their first tour with a live DJ. BBC raves "the NMS are easily the best of the recent crop of bands for whom samplers are moribund, but valve amps provide the meaning of life." The pairing of DJ Logic's skills and NMS's funky soul jazz should provide for some exciting collaborations.

Not only do these guys shell out some of the best funk you can find, but they are hands down some of the nicest people I have ever met. Nice to see them expanding...good job Kent and Melissa and go NMS!!!!

On Jam Cruise V, $400 of my bar tab was buying gin & tonics for New Mastersounds. They are Funk Gods.

NMS bring the funk like no other band on the scene if not is the scene when it come to funk as for playing with a dj for the first time i think i seen Dj Lou Dooben throw down with them in Chicago which was one of the funkiest nights i ever had in CHI and i know logic is dynamite on the one two's but its gonna be tuff to match that kind of funken heat that NMS AND DJ Dooben bring to stage.All hail the funk
