We come from the mountain to bring the funk.
Friends since their original formation in 2006, Surprise Attack reunited in 2015 to share their music and sense of community with a larger audience. Their self-described mountain funk is as much a state of mind as it is a style of music incorporating everything from roots music to hip hop. Drawing heavily from Appalachian jam culture, Surprise Attack performances aim to create a welcoming environment that embraces freedom of expression. Using an otherworldly connection developed over years of friendship, they keep listeners on their toes by winding through an improv-heavy concert experience that always lands somewhere unexpectedly familiar.
