The Word
The Word
The Word is instrumental gospel melodies reworked into heavy grooves and intense musical interaction. The project consists of the southern rock and blues band North Mississippi Allstars, keyboard wizard John Medeski of Medeski, Martin & Wood, and pedal steel sensation Robert Randolph of Robert Randolph and the Family Band.



Robert Randolph learned the sacred steel tradition growing up as the son of a minister and has been bringing pedal steel guitar music to the masses. The Word is the most extraordinary instrumental blues group you have ever heard.



Jamband fans will relish the interplay between Randolph and Luther Dickinson, with guitar licks resonant of the The Allman Brothers Band at their peak. Fresh, moving and joyous, this music celebrates life. The chemistry between these artists is supreme. The Word is the real deal. Do not miss your chance to catch them live at The Capitol Theatre!



Shaolin super group, Kung Fu is back to open for The Word and will get the crowd warmed up and grooving. We can assure you it doesn't get much funkier than this.

Kung Fu
Kung Fu
With a tight headlock on the new-funk movement, Kung Fu is quickly submitting critics with their unique sonic chops. Punishing the line between dojo-disciplined electro-jazz-fusion and street fighter funk, Kung Fu's tao merges early Headhunters and Weather Report mentality with contemporary EDM ideology like yin and yang. Although the essence of the Kung Fu Krewe is rooted among ancient jam dynasties, this fledgling "nu-sion" project intends to dominate audiences while nourishing the chi of all who cross their path.

Kung Fu features Tim Palmieri on guitar (The Breakfast), Robert Somerville on tenor sax (Deep Banana Blackout), Todd Stoops on keyboards (RAQ), Christopher DeAngelis on bass guitar (The Breakfast) and Adrian Tramontano on drums/percussion (The Breakfast). Currently touring in support of the 2011 release of their eponymous debut album, the powerhouse quintet's live show has been described by critics and fans alike as "lethal funk," "explosive," "jaw dropping," and "musically mesmerizing."

For fans of: Weather Report, Deep Banana Blackout, Lettuce
