AUGUST 3/4: DIGiT – Get Ready to Funk at NBT

A little bit of jazz. A whole lot of funk.Pulling together five of the most experienced musicians in the Singapore scene today,  DIGiT is out to set the new standard in old school, horn-driven funk; a good-time mix of variety and vibe focussed on keeping the positivity at an all time high. Having blown them away at SingJazz 2018 earlier in the year, the band have continued to carve a funky reputation as the band to see if you’re wanting to shake off the week that was, showcasing classic tunes from popular artists like James Brown and Candy Dulfer through to funk stalwarts like Maceo Parker and The Meters.

Wednesday with Artist-in-Residence for August, Aalex Termizi.
