Ninja Funk Orchestra official live photo

Who: Ninja Funk Orchestra
From: Toronto, ON
Where: The Silver Dollar
When: Friday, October 18th, 2013

Total Score: 8/10

[starreviewmulti id=3 tpl=20]

Style: Laptops, drums, pedal boards, synths, saxes, at times ambient and brooding, odd 50’s sci-fi vocal samples. Imagine Brian Eno and P-Funk found themselves in an episode of the Twilight Zone.

Crowd: The place started to refill, still going hard at 2:30.

Technicalities: Handled the diverse sounds and projections (yes, projections) quite well.

Sex appeal/image: Disparate looks, but an MC with a suit and shades commands attention.

Memorable song/moment: An MC’ed intro that was both mystical and technological, all while brandishing a mysterious mask.

Comments: These guys put on a goddamn show.
