Charles Walker Band

Friday, Sep 1
The Truth After Party
10 pm 

Band Members: Charles Walker, Porsche Carmon, Dan Kennedy, Emmanuel Folkes
Deliciously Stanky.  Dynamically  Funky.  Recklessly Hopeful.  Grounded
in soul, the Charles Walker Band has been compared to Prince, Bruno Mars, The Brand New Heavys, and James Brown.  The Milwaukee based band has refined their sound into Neo-Funk, a fusion of funk infused rhythms with pop melodies.  The four-piece band rehearses tirelessly in Charles’ basement, amidst couches and low ceilings, Charles having to stoop the entire time.  The questions he always poses to the band are: How can this be tighter? How can this song look different? How can we get fans involved?  Fans love the band’s positive energy music and attend shows because they feel better than when they arrived.  The Charles Walker Band is Deliciously Stanky.  Dynamically Funky.  Recklessly Hopeful.

The Truth

Diego Danger is foot-stompin’ blues from the heartlands!  Somewhere between traditional and modern, the sound projects an earthy aesthetic of blue collar America meets stoney laid-back vibes. Started 2007 in Colorado as a solo project of IA native, Adam Smith. Three albums and a lot of shows later, continues to grow into a blues machine with guitarist “Django Gypsy” Justin Snyder.

After Party

After Party, commissioned by IowaStock to keep the vibe going each and every Labor Day weekend, was constructed by Jeff Banks and is designed to be funky, greasy and high energy. The sound is fresh, it’s tight and it’s loose but no matter what… it’s always the real thing. They pull no punches. The music is honest and the stories are true. This band is comprised of some of the finest musicians you will hear. With roots in funk, jazz, blues and rock, After Party is also at home improvising all night. Rest assured, this is no ordinary band.
