SunSquabi, the three-piece electronic hydro funk band from Boulder, Colo. never seems to disappoint, especially now more than ever. This was true once again at Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom in Denver on Nov. 25, where they played a packed show for a pre-Thanksgiving event called “Danksgiving.”
The crowd poured in from the snowy weather into the venue, where Signal Path was opening for the trio. The night before Thanksgiving is known to be one of the biggest drinking nights of the year, and concertgoers proved just that by getting tall PBR’s and whiskey cokes all night long.
The attendees were the typical Cervantes crowd—it’s hard to tell anyone apart. Grassroots California hats and flannels cluttered the room and artists and vendors set up shop on the outskirts of the dance floor.
Finally, SunSquabi took the stage at around midnight, and had almost every single attendee dancing. Their soulful, funky electronic beats are different than most people in the scene. Throughout their set, they played songs from all of their albums—old and new.
It’s evident that SunSquabi is grateful to play in a city that helped them become significant. They told the crowd how great it was to be back in Denver, and they will be back soon at The Ogden Theater Jan. 15 with Late Night Radio, VibeSquad and Proper Motion.
