Funky Brothers

Bringing a whole lotta sound to the stage, Funky Brothers (放克兄弟) is unlike any other band you’ll see in Taiwan. Starting the party at The Wall, this 9-piece outfit got everyone moving with their own unique blend of Funk, as well as pretty impressive covers of international hits.

MonkeyPilot

I managed to catch Monkey Pilot (猴子飛行員) before Spring Scream and absolutely could not wait to see them again. And just like before, they did not disappoint, providing some of the tightest, highest-energy rock you’ll catch this side of the Pacific.

High Tide

Closing up the night with a heavy dose of grooviness to get everyone moving was High Tide. Their distinctive reggae sound riled up the crowd, and the floor at The Wall became one big dance floor. With big stage presence and command of the audience, there was nary a soul that wasn’t shaking it during their set.
