For years Afrolicious performed regularly in the Mission District in San Francisco before ending their residency earlier this year to take their live band on the road and concentrate on creating and releasing more original music. Last Saturday they returned to their old stomping grounds where the Afrolicious live band played a nearly sold out show at The Chapel with support from Midtown Social. It was like old times with the band bringing the full force of their funk and soul to the San Francisco faithful. After the show things took an unfortunate turn when Wendell Rand, the bass player for Afrolicious , had his car broken into and thieves stole his bass (vintage Modulas Graphite VJ) and frontman Joey "Pleasuremaker" McGuire's guitar and keyboard (Ibanez Artstar, Nord Electro). Both musicians support themselves and their families with their wages from performing and to make up for their losses the band decided to release a compilation of music to raise money to replace the equipment. "We hope that our gear will turn up eventually, I've had that guitar since I was 15 and have composed most of my music on it, but in the meantime we need to purchase replacements so we can make our upcoming gigs and continue to provide for our family and our fans." said McGuire. All proceeds from the compilation, titled "Emergency Funk" will be going to help secure funding for equipment. Alongside brand new Afrolicious and Pleasuremaker songs like "Chicha Pleasure" and "Living Our Lives" are never before live recordings of Afrolicious at Red Rocks and Brooklyn Bowl. 'Emergency Funk' is 11 track album and is available now at www.afrolicious.bandcamp.com and is priced as pay what you want.
