Since the band’s beginnings, the Mutron Warriors have been dedicated to heavy, raw, adrenaline-fueled funk and sweat-dripping soul. Formed in 2006 as a trio the band has steadily expanded its roster and evolving its sound deeply rooted in funk, soul, and afrobeat. Over the past several years the Mutron Warriors has become a staple in regional festivals and clubs, and has built a reputation of being the go to band for those seeking music delivered with the punch and fiery that this band delivers night in and night out.
The Mutron Warriors cut its teeth playing it’s own takes on cuts from the likes of The Meters, P-Funk, James Brown, and many more. Originally built around the vocal styles of Ithaca DJ Brian Mlodzinski, aka djGourd, the group explored genres and drew inspiration from the road already paved by the rich history of the 60’s and 70’s funk and soul movement. Now, with the soulful and powerful vocals of Stephanie Agurkis, the band has tirelessly crafted its sound to be the live juggernaut that can do it all. Weaving seamlessly between old soul, funk, and afrobeat, creating a dynamic sound and experience that has continuously left audiences wanting more, and coming back time and time again to share in the experience of a Mutron show.
Now with ten members to round out their sound, the Mutron Warriors perform regularly in the Ithaca-area to rave reviews. This fresh Afro-Funk has fans begging for more.
