  • Live Music / Maranino & Purple Flux

    Marnino & Purple Flux is a 4-piece band out of Miami, FL that fuses the best of R&B, Soul, Funk, and Hip-hop into one sensual soundscape. The groove is glued together and held tightly by Kalil Bohannon (drums) and Anthony Amador (bass), one of the tightest SoFlo produced rhythm sections around. Victor Marquez (guitar) and Marnino Toussaint (vocals) provide a collage of melody, texture, and lyrics whose colors paint the most common of human experiences ever so vividly.

    The collective of musicians has already garnered acclaim from the likes of Masego and Guapdad4000 for their classic Freestyle Fridays shared via Instagram. The group has noted D'Angelo, Quest Love and The Roots, Anderson.Paak and the Free Nationals, Prince, Mac Ayres, and Masego as some of the various influences to their sound.
