Surprise Attack

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.
