Urban Sun / Press

“Urban Sun is an old, old school funk band. I’ve been looking for music like this, but I didn’t think anyone was making it any more. I’m glad I was wrong. Urban Sun is an eight-piece band, and each part moves and grooves. Take the songs apart, and it seems like it shouldn’t work, but put it all together and it definitely does. That’s how classic funk, by people like Earth, Wind and Fire and the Neville Brothers worked, and Urban Sun nails it. Their lead singer sounds like Supestition-era Stevie Wonder, and the whole thing just cooks. The band has established themselves in New York City, and now they are hoping that their second album will help them get heard further afield. Now that the holiday shopping is done, and we all have a better idea of what we can afford, please help make this happen if you can.”

“To put it bluntly, URBAN SUN is quite frankly, THE SHIT. This eight piece band, based out of New York City, plays some of the most lively, feel good music to date! These guys know what’s up. Continuing to gain momentum with an unstoppable, high energy live show, Urban Sun packs venues throughout the City such as Sullivan Hall, B.B. Kings, and the Knitting Factory. They were even voted BEST UNSIGNED BAND OF THE MONTH in HIGH TIMES. Urban Sun is a MUST SEE band if you are in the Metropolitan or Tri-State area. Not only is their music spreading some seriously positive energy, but it creeps into your feet and makes you want to dance and boogy down. TO READ MORE CLICK LINK...”

“Urban Sun Shines SO Bright Put on your shades, next geners, because this band is too school for cool. Get down with your bad selves to the 8 piece NYC band that sells out classics like BB Kings and other famous venues. We linked up with them because the word on the Hoboken street is that they’re headed towards our way; which means that these NEXT GEN Insider Rockstars will be on our home turf-even before the big red man comes down the chimney, so we must prepare you. You’ve heard of Maxwells right? It’s none only than the hot spot that we frequent because well, we know the management, and we love the music, the art on the walls, and the year-round holiday lights in the windows...

“Urban Sun: February 2010 HIGH TIMES Unsigned Band of the Month Urban Sun is an NYC-based band that combines elements of funk, rock, and soul to create contagious, danceable funk music. To put it simply, Urban Sun never fails to fill a venue with happy people who can't help but get down. The music is undeniably funky, and varies from deep, swampy grooves, to grinding rock, to future-retro dance anthems. Influences such as The Meters, Stevie Wonder, Sly and the Family Stone, Jamiroquai and many more contribute to the chemistry that keeps the band tight and creative.”

“I went to see funk-rock-soul band Urban Sun fronted by the outrageously energetic Joe Trombino...extremely funky group.. they know how to put on a great show to a screaming audience...Trombino spent about 75 percent of show flying through the air...amazing reaction they got from the crowd.. ”

“Well, I can’t recall hearing a hotter set than what I heard at BB King’s tonight! Urban Sun was wonderful! The grooves were kicking... arrangements were great...The lead vocalist was high powered. Everything was tight, together and very professional...the audience was with you all the way...”
