|Noot D'Noot plays at Carson's Grove on|
Friday April 19 at 11:00 p.m.
However, The show I experienced in the dance tent at Shakori 2011 from Noot D'Noot was unlike anything I could have imagined. Noot D'Noot seized my attention from their first note, their soulfully funky sounds proved to be one of the high points of the weekend. The eight-piece crew commands the stage with soaring horns and enough excitement to compel even the lamest of squares to dance their hearts out.
That's what Noot D'Noot brings to the table with a late-night Shakori set, one of the most engaging and incredible performances you'll see all weekend. Powerful female vocals serve as the foundation for this ambitious psychedelic afro-funk experience, Noot D'Noot is a band that you simply must see live to get the full experience.
This group exudes energy, to the degree that you'll be hard pressed to find a face that isn't smiling when they're shaking and sweating to Noot D'Noot. Their rhythms control you and their melodies compel you, they're the perfect blend of depth and sheen to make for an enjoyable experience from all listeners. While the group's vivacious set under the Dance Tent in 2011 was an intimate dance-extravaganza, this year's set will be at Carson's Grove at 11:00 p.m. on Friday April 19. However, some of the wildest Shakori sets can come from Carson's shows, certain Holy Ghost Tent Revival sets can definitely come to mind. The stage set for this band isn't what matters though, it's their music, and I for one certainly won't mind hearing their incredible tunes from this standout act echoing throughout the fields of Shakori.
