Antennas Up to Perform Concert at William Woods

Antennas Up BandAntennas Up, a band with a funky, soulful sound, will perform Tuesday (Aug. 25) at William Woods University. Their music has been described as a slick, dance-worthy blend of rock, funk and soul grooves.


One review proclaimed, “Powerful, groovy, risk-taking Kansas City, Kan., music phenomenon, Antennas Up, is channeling the fever of Saturday nights of the 70s with contemporary electronic sampling and fist-pumping pop.”


An up-and-coming band, Antennas Up released its debut, self-titled album in April. Scheduled performances in coming months include gigs in Texas and Kentucky.


The WWU concert, which is free and open to the public, will begin at 6:30 p.m. on the patio outside Aldridge Hall. The audience is encouraged to bring a blanket or lawn chair to enjoy the concert alongside Junior Lake.


In case of rain, the concert will be performed in Cutlip Auditorium of the McNutt Campus Center.


The Antennas Up concert is part of the annual President’s Concert and Lecture Series, which brings top entertainment to campus for the enjoyment of students and the community.


The band features Bo McCall, guitar and vocals; Kyle Akers, bass and vocals, and the Ryantist, drums and vocals.


They list Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Led Zeppelin, Van Morrison, Otis Redding, Dave Matthews Band, Bob Marley and Ray Charles as singers and groups that have influenced them.
