Kung Fu Honors Stevie Wonder At Benefit Concert In New Haven: Pro-Shot Video

On Friday, December 21, Kung Fu Maintained its eighth annual Toys for Tots Celebration at Toad’s Place at New Haven, Connecticut. The funk-fusion act offered a two-set show that was split between a set filled with Kung Fu originals and one composed completely of Stevie Wonder covers. The five-piece band welcomed quite a few guests throughout the tribute collection. Full show multi-camera video was shared of the whole evening.

Following a full set of their own material, the next set of the night found the quintet playing tribute to Stevie Wonder with the Support of Lettuce’s Nigel Hall, Rob Volo of Deep Banana Blackout, Christine Tambakis of Baby Dynamite along with Matt Jalbert along with Isaac Teel from TAUK. “Higher Ground” from Inversions kicked off the festivities with all Hall handling vocals. From there, the ad-hoc ensemble would mine Songs In The Key Of Life for the majority of the stuff for your set. Kung Fu & Co. supplied up takes on “Ordinary Pain,” “All Day Suck,” “Contusion,” “Black Man” along with “As” on Wonder’s seminal 1976 double-album.
