“Funk with Soul” band AZTEC SUN has hypnotized the ears and feet of live music lovers since late 2012. No matter the scale of the venue, this Washington DC-based ensemble produces an upbeat and retro groove steeped in 70’s Funk and Soul with overtones of Jazz, Afrobeat and Motown-era pop.

What started at DC’s One World Studios as a Funk-Rock 4-piece outfit assembled after a Craigslist ad quickly became a go-to band for live events, house parties and bars throughout Washington, D.C. Over time, band member departures and new arrivals saw AZTEC SUN evolve into a larger group modeled in the Funk and Soul traditions – with horns, group singing, coordinated outfits and synchronized dance moves.

Today, AZTEC SUN performs with a collective mindset, drawing a parallel between the communal nature of music and the community that has grown around the band. Thus, while the performers may vary from show to show, at its core stands a diverse and tightly-knit ensemble with a shared affinity for groove music.
