When: Sat., Feb. 29, 7 p.m. 2020
West End Blend have risen from a group of friends playing basement shows in Hartford, Conn., to a powerhouse act that performs at noteworthy nightclubs all over the Northeast. Fronted by indelible vocalist Erica T. Bryan, the ensemble’s soulful, funk-centric sound ignites the fiercest of dance parties. This week, the band pays tribute to one of the godfathers of pop soul, Stevie Wonder. The living legend’s influence is clearly heard in the octet’s original tunes, so it’s no surprise the band is fully capable of reimagining the “Superstition” singer’s material, too. West End Blend perform on Saturday, February 29, at Nectar’s in Burlington.
