Formed in 2012, Bumpin’ The Mango has become Atlanta’s top funk & soul band. Ten of the southeast’s finest musicians make up this musical brotherhood. Wielding a fiery five piece horn section, a rock solid rhythm section, and an incredible lead vocalist. Their music and presence radiates an energy from the stage that lifts the audience out of their seats and pulls them to the dance floor. Influenced by bands such as Tower Of Power, Earth Wind & Fire, Chicago, and The Ohio Players, Bumpin’ The Mango’s original music is a melting pot of funk, soul, and R&B.
Backroad to Brooklyn is a duo composed of two “blue-eyed soul” singers, Emily Selleck and Ian Michael Bruh. The name is a nod to the singers’ backgrounds—Ian grew up in Coney Island Brooklyn, and Emily was raised in rural North Florida. Despite these vastly different upbringings, they share a love for music that knows no bounds. Outside of B2B, Ian performs regularly with his 10-piece Funk & Soul band, Bumpin’ the Mango, and Emily sings with The Atlanta Showstoppers.
