“Mixed People” is a funky, soul fusion band with hints of rock and world music. Versatile musicianship, raw lyrics, and full vocal harmonies create a genuine, mixed musical experience. The name Mixed People derived from colors that bloomed out the whole funk and nothing but the funk. It embraces the love of self and others regardless of our differences and celebrates the beauty in us all. Mixed People is a Philadelphia-based band, founded by guitarist, Paulette Branson, in August 2012. The music is progressive, and the energy and emotion behind this band will get you dancing on your feet and singing along. Since August 2012, the band has stamped its sound in Philadelphia and the tri-state area performing at various premier music venues and nationally-recognized music festivals from the Ladybug Music Festival to Wawa's Welcome America Festival. Mixed People has shared stages with Terrence Blanchard, Black Alley, Urban Guerilla Orchestra, Breakwater, and more! Fan shave compared Mixed People to P Funk meets N.E.R.D. and Jimi Hendrix meets Prince.E-Mack
