Beau Sasser’s Escape Plan
Organ driven, hard hittin’, boogaloo rooted funk with a rock ‘n’ roll spirit. If the fabled Dr. Funkenstein set out to make a two-headed, ivory tickling, guitar ripping, gut busting, crowd slaying monster and a catastrophic disaster in the lab went perfectly wrong, Beau Sasser’s Escape Plan would be the by-product.
Barika is a 6 piece funky, dubbed out, psychedelic West African flavored band from Burlington, Vermont.
