This autumn the most popular funk band from Latvia Very Cool People (VCP) is coming back to Central Europe with their second tour. The tour starts with a concert in Tamsta club, Vilnius on October 12, includes two concerts in Hungary, two concerts in Romania, three concerts in Serbia and a final concert in Slovenia.
“We are very happy to return to play in Hungary and Romania also this year. We really enjoyed our concerts last year in Szimpla Kert, Budapest and Babel Camp, Balatonboglar, the people & hospitality were amazing, so we are more than happy to come back to these venues. The five concerts in Romania we had with the local band FUNKorporation were also unforgettable, and our cooperation resulted in a recording together with singers Hannah and Erika of the song “Off The Ground”, which is included in VCP’s new album “Caution! Contains Words”. This year we are coming back to Atelier Cafe, Cluj Napoca & and getting to know a new place where we haven’t played yet – Taverna Timisoara, which seems like a really cool place with great artists playing there, like soul music legend Fred Wesley, for example”, comments VCP’ leader Elvijs Grafcovs.
“This year we are not only returning to the amazing venues we were to last year in Romania and Hungary, but including two new countries in the tour. We will play several concerts in Serbia where we have never played before, but we have great expectations as we will meet our friends & soulmates from the local band Naked, side by side with whom we toured around South Korea in 2018. Looking forward also to the concert in Ljubljana, Slovenia, where we will meet the friends from the band Wckd Nation, with whom the band met during their tour in Baltic States realizing they are totally on the same page”, comments VCP’ leader Elvijs Grafcovs.
