Darla is an 8-piece progressive funk group from Philadelphia. The band’s sound is a melding of its raw origin in the Philly basement scene and keen compositional focus on feeling the groove. At its core, the Darla sound is driven by a powerful horn section that wields a lyrical and catchy sense of phrasing. Their efforts are matched by a jarring and methodical rhythm section that has been described as ‘Steely Dan with Dave Grohl on drums.'

Since forming in 2014, Darla has shared the stage with the likes of Snarky Puppy, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, George Porter Jr. (of The Meters), Kamasi Washington, and Cory Henry and the Funk Apostles. They have released six EPs to date, including their latest release "Darla Rolls The Dice!", out now on Phil's Records. Darla is ready to share their funk across the eastern seaboard with shows & festival appearances lined up for the rest of 2017.
Phil Nicolo's Eve of Deconstruction
GRAMMY WINNING PRODUCER and one of Philly's musical treasures, Phil Nicolo is going to freak you out:

"I’m going to take some of the greatest rock songs ever recorded from The Beatles, Led Zepp, Michael Jackson, Jimi Hendrix and others. Break them down to their individual parts by isolating the instrument and vocal tracks that actually make up the song. You’ll be able to hear for the first time what the artist heard while in the recording studio. Details in the music you never heard before.

Vocals so close and present, you can touch them. Guitars so clear, you can hear the players hands on the strings. Amazing details that would be masked if all the instruments were playing at the same time."

I’ll also be giving some fun facts about the recording session. The first time a particular technique was used, that would affect all music that would follow. How a “Happy Accident” could make history, etc.

This is not a “lecture”, far from it. The Eve of De-Construction will be a fun music lovers look at the passion that goes into the making of great music.
