Keystone brings free show by Arrested Development

Keystone’s apres skiing is about to get funky as the resort kicks off its second season of free winter music Saturday with Euforquestra and Arrested Development.

Euforquestra (pronounced: yoo-FOHR-keh-struh – think “euphoria” plus “orchestra”) has impacted the Colorado music scene with its progressive, genre-crossing funk fusions. Its “Afro-Caribbean-Barnyard-Funk” style blasts out a rhythmic blend of reggae, Afro-Cuban, samba, soca, funk, salsa and dub.

“We just want to make people dance,” said percussionist and lead vocalist Matt Grundstad.

Saturday’s headliner, Arrested Development, strives to spread unique hip-hop worldwide. The two-time Grammy winners captured an NAACP image award in 1993 for their dignified representation of black America. Through their music, they’ve brought attention to the plight of the homeless and have celebrated cultural diversity. They’ve also added an alternative voice to hip-hop by staying away from lyrics that demean women and glorify gangster life and drugs.

Arrested Development released “Strong” in May, sending the message that the 1990’s hip-hop group is still potent in the new millennium.
