“In Mighty Five’s Infinite Funk Odyssey, [we’re] trying out a new theatrical concept in which the whole show is based around keeping the audience dancing and having a good time, like a real concert,” explains Mighty Five musician and script collaborator Zach Abramson. “There’ll be a few seats in case you get tired, but with these funky songs you won’t be able to help but shake that thing,” adds Phil Aulie, script co-creator and director.
The show is based on the music and adventures of Mighty Five; they’re from Dimension F, a funky space whose entire existence is dependent upon a non-stop dance party, and the Funkatronic Energy that it creates. “Mighty Five” is the name of New York City-based music duo Zach Abramson & Derek Muro, who created Mighty Five’s 2008 electro-funk concept album VORTEXX.
Abramson says of their album and music video Check This Out!, “Crazy characters, an other-worldly setting and a ridiculous story—it was only a matter of time before someone would see the potential for a stage show.”
