Funkwagon is a gospel infused funk band based in Burlington, VT. The band was formed in 2005 by Aaron Burroughs. “I like to think of it as church with a smoker’s section…and a bar,” says Burroughs. Funkwagon is not a typical funk band, as the name might suggest. “Well for one thing its very vocal oriented, said Burroughs. “We pay attention to our lyrics.” “It’s popular, it’s pop music in a way …that it’s hook oriented and bass driven but we have five and sometimes six part harmonies stacked on top of it all so it really does feel kind of like a choir.” “Everything I do kind of has that church choir feel to it. But its kind of raw, but not in a way that’s imposing and won’t be on the radio, you know what I mean?” Burroughs grew up with music playing a large role in his life. He sang in church choirs and always had a piano in his home. A Michigan native, he came to Vermont in 2005 with the idea in mind to create a band under his unique leadership style. Twenty band members and five years later, Burroughs is satisfied that his vision has came together.

Building Blox

Building Blox will be performing electronic music every Thursday during the month of April with Funkwagon at Nectar’s.



Stronghold is a power trio from southern Maine. A high energy band that plays a mix of rock/funk. With heavy hitting bass lines, superb drumming, and a keyboard mastermind, Stronghold always brings excitement to their shows. Expect a lot of hard jamming with a flurry of slap bass and keyboard notes. Come see Stronghold in action!
