Trace Repeat is an Oakland-based eight-piece soul and funk band. They believe in reviving the aesthetics of their Motown forefathers, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, and The Temptations. Huffpost says if you don't feel Trace Repeat's funky groove, check your pulse!
From Bandleader Wesley Woo:
"Asian Americans are most commonly known as the quiet type. Silent and compliant, the submissive race. We are the quiet kid in the back of the class that minds our own business and doesn't cause trouble...What we're really setting out to do with Trace Repeat is break down these stereotypes...It's an unapologetically sexy representation of funk and soul in an industry that expects us to be anything but that."
