IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT! ==========================
Hi Venues and Beat Funktion fans.
We have just learned that the issuance of the final Visas for the band will be delayed. ISIS threats, elevated security alerts, Ebola and a computer system down at INS all contributed to the delay, which is totally out of our control.
We are deeply sorry that we will miss the first week of the tour. Venues and radio stations have been contacted.
The Visas to be issued are for a year so the band will reschedule and expects to return to the States after this tour in the spring. Hopefully, all willing, we will be able to play the dates cancelled.
The band is also being romanced by a major jazz label and things really look promising. Again, we apologize 1000 x for the burden and inconvenience this will cause to the venues, radio stations and fans.
