The Pamlico Sound

Boulder Colorado’s longest-running champions of high-energy, authentic Funk and Soul music, The Pamlico Sound are known for their original, contemporary songs and performances, while drawing inspiration from classic legends like Sly & The Family Stone and Parliament Funkadelic. The joyful interplay between band and audience combine to create the “Jive Church”: a non-religious, theatrical/interactive experience inspired by the black Baptist churches of the south—with everyone moving, shouting and shaking in a celebration of the uplifting power of Pure Funk'n Soul.

The Pamlico Sound have received enthusiastic coverage in the press, including Marquee Magazine, Westword, Colorado Music Buzz, The Colorado Daily, Yellow Scene and BolderBeat. Radio stations KGNU, KBCO, Radio 1190 and 105.5 The Colorado Sound have helped spread their music through airplay of their recordings and live-on-air shows like KGNU’s Kabaret and KBCO’s Live From Studio C. Their performance history to date includes numerous headliners at top-rated venues like The Fox Theatre, Boulder Theater, Cervantes’ Masterpiece and Other Side, the Bluebird Theater, Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox, and The Walnut Room, as well as headlining the Boulder Hometown Festival, the Upslope Getdown and Broomfield Amphitheater, and multiple self-produced celebrations of their favorite music and musicians called “Funkstravaganzas” at various venues including the Fox and Cervantes’. Their most recent “themed” show, “She Got the Funk: An Evening with Denver’s Women of Funk & Soul”, easily sold out Lost Lake in Denver.
