    Friendly Thieves

    Friday 9:30pm | Quirk Terrace Stage

    Friendly Thieves is a five piece funk rock band based in Kansas City. Think Alabama Shakes and Young The Giant have a Vulfpeck inspired love child. 
 Fronted by Sam Wells’ villainous and intoxicating voice, this quintet is accompanied by Ben Baker sporting crunchy sax lines dripping with effects, Sam Millard’s stanky mid-focused bass, Jamae Breeze’s colorful lead guitar and John Goss’s balance of effortless yet deliberate percussion. 
 Reconing themself as “Liquid Grit” – their sound holds the best of funk psychedelia and alternative rock.
