I had the distinct pleasure of seeing The Primaries play last week, their soulful R&B covers and funky originals filling the courtyard of the Fowler Museum with an infectious groove. They're the kind of band you can't help but move to, with a dynamic sound accompanied by a diverse rag-tag group of talented musicians. Led by frontman guitarist and vocalist Ryan Yoo, The Primaries' unique instrumentation and hip-shaking sound has won them acclaim both on-campus and off. They recently performed for the Kollaboration LA competition, whose correspondent Aaron Yeung wrote "the band has pieced together smooth, sensual jams with both innovative and vintage elements, making them a sight for sore-eyes in an industry filled with carbon-copies" (Source).
BE SURE TO COME SHIMMY WITH THE PRIMARIES ON MAY 1 AT 5:00 PM!!!
"The Primaries are a band. The Primaries have seven members plus one who doesn't know how to play anything. The Primaries are fond of free food, discounts, and Stevie Wonder. The Primaries are making an album. Said album will be released in May 2015. Hopefully."
