Back from Europe, Vulfpeck had their first show on American soil last night at the Electric Factory in Philadelphia. Philly Native Son warmed up the crowd before the Vulf finally hit around 1am as part of the Project Pabst after-party special. The funk quartet was joined by some very special guests, including the “Funky Duck” himself Antwaun Stanley, and a full horns section.Local Philly extraordinaires Ian Gray (Swift Technique, trombone), Greg Rosen (Swift Technique, trumpet), Brian Blaker (Swift Technique, tenor sax, soprano sax), and Sam Greenfield (Electron, Stratosphere All-Stars, alto sax, baritone sax, clarinet) joined frequent collaborator Mark Dover (clarinet) to blow some extra life into “Back Pocket,” “1612”, “Funky Duck”, and “It Gets Funkier”. The funky five amplified Jack Stratton‘s dance moves to a new dimension, calling upon the 3,000 attendees finest claps galore. The vibes were plenty, the souls were loud, the energy was contagiously happening. To say we hope these horns are more heavily included in future Vulf-collaborations is an understatement.Among the many highlights of the hour-long set was the live debut of Theo Katzman‘s new single “Hard Work”, which presented itself after a number of Woody Goss compositional staples. Vulf provided the perfect musical background for the soul singer to deliver his new solo track in support of his upcoming record “Heartbreak Hits,” out this January.Furthermore, Antwaun Stanley made his United States debut of the Al Green track, “Simply Beautiful”. Played only once before in London earlier this month, Twaun took center stage to deliver this impeccable cover (watch at 31:30 mark of video below). A smooth groove with vocals that take you to a planet far beyond our own, the song was the perfect middle man between the anthemic “Funky Duck” and the sing-a-long classic “Wait For The Moment” (the prior of which demands a special mention for an unforgettable solo from Swift trombonist Ian Gray, and the latter featuring a stand-out clarinet solo from Mark Dover).Straddling the degrees between gospel, pop, soul, and straight up funk, the only way to move past the extremities was with the narrative pleasures of “Christmas In LA” and the bass-bombing aerobics of Joe Dart‘s “Beastly”. The horns returned for a set-closing “It Gets Funkier,” and alas, it did. Desperate chants for an encore ensued, but the venue did not allow.Thanks to YouTube user Chris Cafiero, you can enjoy the entire show in 4K:It Gets Funkier – 360° Stage View [via Karl McWherter]Vulfpeck @ Electric Factory 10/9/16:Outro, Fugue State, Birdwatcher, My First Car, Hard Work (Theo Katzman Song), Back Pocket*, 1612*, Funky Duck*, Simply Beautiful (Antwaun Stanley Song), Wait For The Moment, Christmas in LA, Beastly, It Gets Funkier**w/ Swift Technique Horns[Photos courtesy of Karl McWherter] Load remaining images
Each passport features a description of the location, hours of operation and some destinations even offer special discounts for Notre Dame students. The goal of the passport format, according to Crawford, is to get students to visit as many of the destinations as possible. At every location a student shows the passport, they will receive a stamp on the passport for that organization. “I would have never thought to explore South Bend until I got my passport,” freshman Gina Rogari said. “I didn’t know we had some of those things around here.” “Our students should be able to leave this community that they’ve lived in for four years and tell people all about it,” he said. “Besides, I think that when they visit some of these places, they will be blown away by what they see.” First created last spring, the Cultural Passport program was developed through a partnership with the College of Science and Mayor Stephen Luecke of South Bend. The program gives every student a cultural passport featuring 14 destinations in the South Bend area where students are encouraged to visit. Each College has the passports and students are encouraged to go to their dean’s office and pick one up. The Class of 2014 received their passports during Freshmen Orientation. Many of the freshmen said the passports have made them see there is a lot more to South Bend than just Notre Dame. While many Notre Dame students may decide to study abroad and travel to far-off places, a new program on campus is encouraging students to seek out the marvels in the local community. Crawford and Mayor Luecke worked with each of the fourteen destinations to be included in the program. The Mayor’s Office agreed to print up a special certificate for any student who receives a stamp from every location in the passport. But Crawford hopes that students participate in the program for different reasons. “This is a nice and easy way to engage the community, and a very important one,” he said. “I would hate to think that they would participate in this simply to receive a certificate.” “Before starting this program, I visited most of the places that are in the passports and I was fascinated by all these various organizations,” he said. “I started working with the Mayor’s office and together we compiled this list of fourteen locations that we encourage students to visit during their time here at Notre Dame.” When the program was conceived last year, it was initially only offered to a select group of students from the College of Science and was more of a “prototype” according to Crawford. However, the program has been expanded to include every undergraduate and graduate student at Notre Dame. Crawford said the program will be reviewed at the end of the year and feedback will be solicited from the students who participated in the program to see if any changes should be made. Crawford said he has little doubt that the program will help bring new outlook to the students who take advantage of the program and the city of South Bend. “I believe that all of our students need to graduate with not only a great education but actually knowing something about the community that they’ve lived in for four years,” Dean Gregory Crawford of the College of Science said. Freshman Molly Shank said while she found the passport “helpful,” initially she wasn’t sure of its purpose. “There wasn’t a whole lot of explanation about the program,” she said. “They need to explain it better because I would definitely use it now.” Crawford said he came up with the idea when he realized how few Notre Dame students ever venture into the South Bend community.
