Igniting dance parties across the North Bay and beyond, Burnside blends funk, rock, and soul to bring good people together. From smooth and sultry to rock-your-socks-off, they invite you on an intoxicating musical journey of original tunes, channeling everything from Cake to James Brown to Amy Winehouse. Bassist Andros Howes towers over the stage, a funk-fueled, barefoot, groove-making machine. Guitarist Nash Weber, as busy on the pedal board as on his strings, serves up tasty riff after tasty riff. Soulful matriarch Jeanna Collet adds the vocal sweetness these boys need, but don’t be deceived: she’s got spice when ya need it most–watch out for that tambourine! At the drums, whether he’s putting costumes on or taking them off, Jason “Gigi” Berkman keeps the beat driving with mischief, magic and marvelousness. And jumping around at the mic, rhythm guitar in tow, Evan Wiig tells intimate stories about lives you might know, anthems for a movement, and occasionally you might catch him growling. But whatever the topic, whatever the style, wherever the party, “you can’t not dance to Burnside.”
