Hailing from Kansas City, NuBlvckCity’s genre-bending Jazz influence, on top of neo-soul vocals, storytelling lyrics, the bounce of funk, and electric performance is a blend of music that can’t be contained to any one thing. Influenced by The Roots, Fugees, Erykah Badu, G-Funk, and Jazz greats’, the collective pulls from various sounds to create something you may have never heard before. Through custom-curated sets, the range of NuBlvckCity’s vibe will have you dancing and joining in on their catchy hooks while appreciating the depth of their art via colorful soul ballads and narratives.
The Collective is Kartez Marcel (sounds, keyboard, vocals), Love, Mae C. (vocals), They Call Me Sauce (sounds, vocals), and VP3 (saxophone, vocals). Their unique way of highlighting each member’s contribution to the group allows them to look and act like a traditional band while keeping the feel of individual artistry and freedom. They have built rare chemistry that leads to exceptional improvisation during live shows and a level of performance that keeps you guessing while wanting more. Welcome to the city, a place with new kinds of good music.
