Solar-powered Street Funk at The Manitoba Marathon

By Urban Street Funk

Urban Street Funk hit the streets last Sunday morning. Performing for the 4th year for the Manitoba Marathon, they entertained runners en-route as they passed under the Donald Street Bridge.

Winnipeg's hottest funkrock duo have no need of a wall outlet to provide power for their P.A. system.

" Our solar-powered rig lets us play wherever we want, " says electric guitarist and vocalist, Karen Taylor. "This was our fourth year performing for the runners. We play with a very high-energy sound, lots of thumping bass in the guitar and, the right-on-the-money super-funky drumming of Scott Young. We love cheering on the runners and always get lots of reciprocal cheers and waves. I mean, really, lots of people who were walking, picked up the pace and started running when they came within range of our music."

Urban Street Funk-jumpin' and jivin' all around town in this one great city. Check them out on their FUSE Tour-more info can be found at
