Get funky during the 2015 RAM Band show "Sheptown Funk"! Our performance opens with Tower of Power's We Came To Play and moves on to the drumline groove with Stevie Wonder's Sir Duke. Next, we feature the saxophone section on Pick Up The Pieces by Average White Band before jammin' into our Earth, Wind, and Fire set, including After The Love Has Gone and September. We close the show with a hot rendition of Bruno Mars's Uptown Funk.
