Meet the Band: The Nu Classics

As we draw nearer to our SpokesBUZZ Fort Collins SXSW Showcase, we’ll be spotlighting our Class of 2011 bands, so you can get to know them a little better. Enjoy!
SpokesBUZZ Band: The Nu Classics

The Nu Classics

Genre: Funk/Neo-Soul

Drawing from classic funk and R&B while infusing the styles of modern hip hop and neo-soul, The Nu Classics embody a musical spirit similar to that of their namesake. With intelligent arrangements accompanied by sultry vocals, their dynamic versatility creates a smooth and sexy sound. The Nu Classics bring a fresh twist to a traditional formula that will hit you like Déjà Vu.

Band Members
Eric Imbrosciano: Drums
Walter Hannah: Organ and Bass Keys
Devon Parker: Vocals

Background
The project first got together as an instrumental duo in the fall of 2008, with Devon joining the group in July 2009. Eric previously toured the east coast with well-known bands such as Peter Prince & Moon Boot Lover, The Sam Kininger Band, Lynch and others. Walter has played with some of Northern Colorado’s best musical talent in groups such as The Grippe, Juno What?!, and Euforquestra. This project is Devon’s debut as lead vocalist, but she formerly sang backup vocals for the reggae/ska band The Ten Timers.

Influences
The Nu Classics list John Scofield, Herbie Hancock, and Erykah Badu as notable influences and have shared the stage with George Clinton and the P-Funk Allstars, The Motet, and many others.
