The amazingly fun, high energy funk band 6 Figures includes; Louis Cato, Nozomi Yamaguchi, DJ Ginyard, Corey Bernhard, ((D White}} and James Casey are sure to deliver. Returning to 92Y Tribeca following an outstanding set at Jason Moran's 713-212 Houstonians event, Thomas is supported by the talents of Mark Kelley, Nir Felder, Theo Hill, Amaury Acosta and Axel Tosca-Laguart in a genre bending set of vocal and instrumental based music that covers a diverse spectrum, a finely crafted mold that can turn any night into a party.

“Mr. Thomas—trumpeter, singer, composer and almost comedian—sang wordy, needling songs about sex and insecurities and character flaws, yelling out private jokes wherever possible. Intermittently hilarious, his set fishtailed through jazz and rock and funk; he hasn't found his cult just yet, but with more songs like “Roll Play," he might." —Ben Ratliff, The New York Times

Tickets are $10 online / $12 at the show
