Door 44 Winery, June 1, 3:30-5:30 pm
Luma Knotty out of Green Bay is “reggae space funk”: a sound created through the varied backgrounds of its musicians, who have spent time playing at the Mexico/Texas border, in the Minneapolis funk scene and around northeastern Wisconsin. Described as a “unique blend of funk, rock and reggae, with the vibes of the sunny West Coast, energy of the funky Midwest and electric feel that’s out of this world.” You’ll find Rasta Ryan on guitar and vocals, Hayden Pettit on drums and Luis J on keys. Luma Knotty will deliver positive vibes and energetic styling to the newly opened Door 44 space to kick off its weekly summer-concert series.
