POTCH, West End Blend
From the venue:
POTCH is to music what a freestyle skier is to snow; weaving endlessly through different genres and styles with finesse and experience in an improvisational manor. Blending together important elements of rock, funk, jazz, blues, soul, and many more, this action packed five piece is drawing from a huge amount of talent under the hood. POTCH has a notable Atlanta, Georgia based musical background that has been steeped in improvisation and long-term friendship. The members have humble beginnings with years of experience playing together. Most have now played in numerous successful bands and projects together.
Since their conception, CT-based Funk/Soul band West End Blend has been playing their version of Funk and Soul in venues all over the Northeast and beyond. Fronted by vocalist Erica T. Bryan, the band pays homage to classic throwback sounds while adding their own distinct vibe and flair. Behind her, the Blend packs two guitars, a two-piece horn section, bass, keyboards and drums onto stages every night. From humble beginnings in an epic and sweaty basement dance party, The Blend’s goal has always been to bring that same atmosphere to their shows ever since.
