Funkwagon will perform Friday on Delta Blue stage

Funkwagon will perform on the Delta Blue stage from 9 p.m. to midnight Friday.

As part of the continuing Music Programming at Delta Blue, Funkwagon will be joining the incomparable Delta Blues lineup of bands.

Funkwagon is a gospel infused funk band based in Burlington, Vt. The band was formed in 2005 by Aaron Burroughs.

“I like to think of it as a church with a smoker’s section and a bar,” Burroughs said.

Funkwagon is not a typical funk band, as the name might suggest.

“Well, for one thing, it’s very vocal oriented,” Burroughs said “We pay attention to our lyrics.

“Everything I do kind of has that church choir feel to it, but it’s kind of raw but not in a way that’s imposing and won’t be on the radio. You know what I mean?”

Delta Blue is located in Lake Placid at the Historic Northwoods Inn, 2520 Main St. Delta Blue features live music on Wednesday night with its Open Mic Blues Jam, and on Friday and Saturday nights from 9 p.m. to midnight with an eclectic mix of regional and nationalblues artists, and talented local musicians.
