    The Whips

    Saturday 6:15pm | Elevate Stage

    Fueled by stimulants, a love of funk music and the need to compensate for something, four lifelong friends set out to travel the country competing to embarrass each other and rope unsuspecting strangers into their escapades. Is this Tru TV’s Impractical Jokers? No, this is The Whips! Hailing from the longitudinal center of the United States, the CEOs of Midwestern Funk continue to cruise the sweet freeways of the U. S. of A. to swap sweat (and more?) with fans of the high stakes, funk-pop genre with both hooks AND grooves so syncopated that they reset all clocks in a 40-mile radius. They also surf the waves of the web with their rapidly accumulating internet following gained from viral videos of their funkiest moments. Build a song? That was them! Call and response game? That was them! The Hindenburg disaster? No comment. Each member of The Whips have pledged their life, and the life of their first born child to the pursuit of high energy funk that makes your toes tingle, and also they have NO BACK UP PLAN!
