Two of South Florida’s premiere musical acts will converge at the Design District venue known for showcasing the area’s best and brightest artists. Humbert and Ketchy Shuby will co-headline the evening after Independence Day, in what promises to be a high-energy night of rock and soul.
Scene veterans Humbert will bring flavorful melodies, Beach Boy-tinged harmonies and relentless rock power to The Stage in what will be only their second performance there after May’s Sound Theory Live relaunch on Wynwood Radio party. The four-piece is poised to release their first set of new music since 2006, which should be available online and on CD in August of this year.
“Very few bands are greater in weight than Humbert – Ketchy Shuby is one of them and we are very happy to be sharing the stage with them,” offers Humbert’s colorful frontman Ferny Coipel. “Pound for pound, they are heavier than us.”
Ketchy Shuby’s explosive funk jams coupled with the group’s soulful tunesmith and the manic-energy of lead singer /guitarist Jason Joshua Hernandez-Rodriguez have kept them extremely busy this year. Coming off spring a Midwestern tour that took them through the Austin, TX mega-music festival SXSW, the band caught the attention of Spin Magazine. Their momentum has carried them through early summer with near-weekly gigs throughout South Florida in support of their latest single “I’ll Take Care of You”.
When asked his thoughts on the pairing of the two bands, Hernandez-Rodriguez simply says: “Humbert is my favorite band of all time. That’s all.”
Also performing July 5th are DJ Heron and DJ Methods; food will be provided for a nominal fee by Monte’s Country Cajun Cooking food truck. Admission to the event is free before 10 p.m., $10 afterwards. For more information and to buy tickets, visit www.thestagemiami.com.
