Starship Mantis, Clara Kent, Livefromthecity

Starship Mantis is a five piece funk-fusion band that blends the new school pop-funk sounds of Jamiroquai with the jazz-fusion language of Snarky Puppy, while incorporating the on stage pageantry of Parliament Funkadelic.

From its humble beginnings in Pittsburgh, the group has an extensive history of performing internationally and regionally with national acts. They have shared the stage with acts like Lettuce, Cory Henry and the Funk Apostles, Ghost Note, and Marbin, and performed at numerous regional festivals such as Some Kind of Jam, WaterFire Festival, Feastival, and more.
