Busboys and Poets Takoma, 235 Carroll St, Washington DC 20012
United by the beat and driven by the groove, AZTEC SUN's music is perfect for dancing or just listening and appreciating. Named "DC's Best Local Band of 2016" by the Washington City Paper's Reader's Poll, they offer a blend of 70s-era Funk and Soul music with heavy influences of Afrobeat, Blues and Jazz. Hard-hitting rhythms, infectious melodies and high-energy live performances are the hallmarks of this band. The group combines a multitude of cultural backgrounds and professional occupations (including two musicians union members) - but the sum of their work is a tightly-wound music machine. Catch them live at the 2017 DC LaborFest!
