Describing themselves as, “Phoenix’s first and only Klezploitation band! Conceived and birthed by Chris Del Favero and Jessie Demaree in 2010, the band is now in its third incarnation with 14 rotating members. After an intense two year adventure from Guatemala to Peru, Chris and Jessie brought back a multitude of ethnic genres they learned to fuse with their American Funk and Klezmer styles. Now armed with Salsa, Mambo, Samba, Bossa Nova, Cumbia, Afrobeat, Klezmer and Funk, the sexy psychedelic experience of Jerusafunk transcends all prior modems of culture into a Saturnalian jubilation of humanism.”
Jerusafunk threw themselves their own going away party as the prepared to depart on their first tour in a local band showcase show at the Crescent Ballroom on July 2, 2015.
