Mokaad
Mokaad Mokaad is a funk band from NYC. Founded by Gabriel Garzón-Montano and Davy Levitan, the 11 piece group has crafted a dope sound that combines Prince's relentless fight grooves, the bubbling horns of maestro Fred Wesley and the presence of Sly & The Family Stone. Mokaad has undeniably created a stank that is one of a kind. Their debut EP, entitled 'Booty' (mastered by Henry Hirsch) is quickly turning heads. Rivaling this remarkable debut are only the bands live shows, which have created a loyal fanbase and which continue to capture audiences wherever they play. "We are trying to put the old records on, while adding the boom-bap so young people discover the funk all over again." Says band leader Gabriel Garzón-Montano. "Studying and copying the masters we idolize to eventually take the music where its going." Mokaad is trunk music for real live people.
