Who Is THE C.I.T.Y.?
When you say Funk, Soul, Rhythm and Blues you must be talking about The C.I.T.Y. This vibrant and boldly fresh conglomerate of artistically talented young people brings hard work and an outright gift to take over a stage. They have an appeal backed with personal works of music that define the band and their artistic direction. This group is high energy to the third power when working their musical magic together and while doing so, they have aptly displayed their brand as visionary songwriters, composers, entertainers and skilled musicians.
This Houston based group has performed locally at several events ranging from halftime for the Houston Rockets to the “Stars Over Texas” stage at the Houston Livestock and Rodeo. They've also collaborated with local venue Grooves of Houston's "R&B Concert Series” to open for R&B Stars Jon B. and Montell Jordan. In addition the group has seen its share of local venues from The House of Blues, Warehouse Live, Last Concert Café and Alley Kat Bar just to name a few.
Also wearing the hat of entrepreneurs the band recently accepted the challenge of putting on their own concert where they would perform strictly their own original music. This was accompanied by months of planning, budgeting, investing , advertising and promotion and resulted in performing at Grooves of Houston for over 300 dedicated fans.
While reigning as a Houston fan favorite they’ve also taken the party on the road gracing stages in Dallas, Austin (SXSW), New Orleans, Atlanta and even out to sea while partnering with Dream Time Travel and Carnival Cruise Lines.
Like George Clinton & Parliament-Funkadelic, Mint Condition and Frankie Beverly & Maze all rolled up in one, they will make you beg for an encore each and every show, validating their coined slogan, "THE C.I.T.Y., We Party". They are a breath of fresh air for live music, delivering funk in increasing levels.
They will take you on a musical voyage of Funk, Hip Hop, Soul, R&B and more. They are what the future holds for live music lovers as well as those that walk their own path "unapologetically". It says it in the name,
Completely In Tune w/ Yourself.
