Jamiroquai Set to Funk up Seoul
By Benedict Pather
Staff Reporter
Jamiroquai set to funk up Seoul.

With over 21 million records sold worldwide, combining a mixture of pop, rock and electronica as well as topping charts since the early 90's — no one can deny the maestro of British band Jamiroquai. Their name originates from two words: the first being ‘Jam' which is a term often used by musicians when performing and ‘Iroquai' which relates to the Native American Indian tribe Iroquois.

The bands line up has changed several times yet they still managed to maintain a soulful and rhythmic sound that has a strong jazz, funk and disco influence which made them popular not only live but also in clubbing scenes everywhere.

One of the driving forces behind the bands overwhelming success is undoubtedly its front man - founder, singer and songwriter, Jason "Jay" Kay. Often claiming the most attention through he's melodic voice, on stage character and vibrant Dr Seuss style hats. Many agree that Jay Kay's energy, creativity, fetish in collecting luxury sports cars and oh-so-cool attitude makes him one of the most recognized artists in the industry.

After receiving much appreciation in Japan and throughout Asia for their groovy sound, Jamiroquai will visit Korea for the first time on the 14th of November for a concert that promises to be as upbeat and funky as ever. The event will be held at the Olympic Park Stadium in Seoul and attendees can expect to hear smash hits such as "When You Ganna Learn," "Love Foolosophy" and "Canned Heat" which will prove that - this boogie is for real!!

Some of the group's many accolades include a Grammy award as well as an MTV music video award for the jazzy hit "Virtual Insanity." For more information visit the bands website http://www.jamiroquai.com and for details on how to purchase tickets go to

Tickets are going quite fast and as this is a once off opportunity to witness the group perform in Seoul I'd suggest you rush to purchase to a avoid disappointment.
