U.G.O .was put together for one reason… to bring back soul music the way it is meant to be, with incredible soul stirring performances.
“Mixed People” is a funky, soul fusion band with hints of rock and world music...or as we like to call it - new age funk. Versatile musicianship, raw lyrics, and full vocal harmonies create a genuine, mixed musical experience. The name Mixed People derived from colors that bloomed out the whole funk and nothing but the funk. It embraces the love of self and others regardless of our differences and celebrates the beauty in us all. Mixed People is a Philadelphia-based band, founded by guitarist, Paulette Branson, in August 2012. Other band members include: Bird Williams (keytar and vocals), Pierre Nix (percussion and vocals),Terrence Jones (bass), Sunny Dee/Najashi Abdur-Rasheed (drums), Jakeya Sanders (vocals), and Ashley Howard (vocals). Any given night, you'll also find a collaborative of other distinguished musicians joining them on stage. Since August 2012, the band has stamped its sound in Philadelphia performing at various music venues, from World Cafe Live to Hard Rock Cafe to The Trocadero.
In April 2014, Mixed People released their EP Album, Shark Attack. Shark Attack is a fun, refreshing, guitar-driven masterpiece that has left fans craving for more. The music is progressive, and the energy and emotion behind this band will get you dancing on your feet and singing along.
