Miami Device

Miami Device is a 10-piece Afro-beat/Funk band based out of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Since their inception in 2007 the band has grown from a small four-piece funk experiment into the deep grooving, Fela Kuti inspired, boogiethon that exists today. With heavy driven horns atop syncopated guitars and layered percussion they produce a dance inducing, highly energetic live show.

No two Miami Device shows are the same. The spontaneity and originality of each performance is what has kept audiences excited and wanting more. They have consistently been able to pack venues by building a word of mouth following consisting of whoever loves getting down and having a good time.

In the last year Miami Device has released a self-titled EP, doing everything from recording to mixing, arrangement and album art, entirely themselves. Response has been great and they expect to be working on a full length LP within the year.

Miami Device is a truly unique instrumental musical experience that blends the old and the new, enticing audiences to meet them in the middle and participate in a positive funk odyssey. A must see.
