LA: The Funk Rumble Block Party


The Funk Rumble Block Party
LA’s own Historic Chinatown will be home to the 1st Annual Funk Rumble Block Party this summer.

This incredible grassroots event is brought to you through a collaboration of some of LA’s top underground music and art promoters.

Half music festival – half block party, The Funk Rumble is a blend of live music, djs, vendors, and artists coming together to celebrate urban soul and create the ultimate summer party!

Groove to the sounds of LA’s top funk bands. Performing live – Breakestra, The Lions, Orgone & more! Plus San Francisco’s own – J-Boogie’s Dubtronic Science!

The finest djs from LA’s top underground clubs will be laying down a vast mix of music – soul, funk, reggae, hip hop, latin and more – combining past present and future.

Peruse the vendor village and you’ll find apparel, accessories, artwork and one-of-a-kind goods presented by up and coming designers and the most creative individuals from San Diego to San Francisco.

Amazing works of art will be created right before your eyes from start to finish, throughout the event grounds and art walk area, by over 15 LA artists.

A variety of food, including vegetarian, will be available along with cool treats…cold Hawaiian snow cones on a beautiful summer day!

Cold beer and a full bar inside the Grand Star Jazz Club.

Join us for this “economy friendly” groundbreaking event!
