Grupo Fantasma

"Grupo Fantasma (in U.S.A.) is an 11 piece latin funk orchestra from Austin, Texas. Formed in 2000 from the merger of two Austin acts, The Blue Noise Band and The Blimp, the band emerged with a sold out show at the former Empanada Parlour on 6th Street in Austin. The band is best known for their exuberant live shows and their recent association with Prince and his 3121 Club in Las Vegas. The band has backed Prince on numerous occasions, including his performance on the ALMA Awards in 2007, and often perform at his afterparty jam sessions." [Wikipedia]
Assuming it is actually still happening, you can add another band to the list of bands playing the Williamsburg Waterfront in Brooklyn this summer. Oddly, Grupo Fantasma are on the same bill as HEALTH. All dates and some videos below...
