LOWER MANHATTAN — It’s going to get funky at Pier 15 this summer.

The lively band, known for its groovy anthems like “Give Up The Funk,” is part of a summerlong concert series hosted by the Watermark Bar, a glass-enclosed spot that opened on the renovated pier last year.

Other acts performing in the mostly funk, blues and jazz-filled lineup include the New Orleans-based Rebirth Jazz Band and Brooklyn's Snarky Puppy, a collective of about 40 musicians. The first show will be Escort on June 13.

Tickets for the eight shows range in price from $25 to $40. More shows may be announced in the coming weeks.
