Last week the annual WOBC Block Party was moved indoors due to rain. But Knomadik didn’t let that dampen our spirits: the septet broadcast live on the air from the lounge at the WOBC studios to an audience of dedicated WOBC listeners and DJs. The band creates a unique sound borrowing elements from hip-hop, electro, funk, gospel, progressive rock, and jazz. Check out their live set on WOBC below!
