The Dank Tops

Band Contact: Matt Ohlheiser
Saturday, May 18 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Born of funk and steeped in soul, The Dank Tops will surely rock your night. With Chris Sublette on bass, Matt Ohlheiser on drums, and Bill Kenny on guitar, the band churns out undertones of Jamiroquai and Soulive topped with a sprinkling of neo-soul sweetness taken from D’Angelo and The Soultronics. Gracefully perched center stage is Emily Jones, a singer who truly bares her soul with every note she sings. Bringing an impassioned and sultry tone, she follows directly in the footsteps of the late Amy Winehouse. Providing a similar breath of fresh air, Jones is the perfect compliment to the Dank Top sound.
