Unified Tribe has a special treat for the Triber who purchases the 500th CD from CDBaby. That person will win a 2GB iPod Nano stocked full of the Tribe''s last two albums as well as the brand new FUNKtional Family.
Unified Tribe is an Austin-based band with New York and L.A. roots. With 12 principal members, they are a throwback in both size and sound to the days of big bands like Earth, Wind and Fire and Sly and The Family Stone.
It''s the true musicality of their records that first draws in most fans. It''s an element that is missing from so many industry-formulated artists these days. The Tribe is anything but industry-formulated. With a core that''s been together for almost 24 years, they''ve grown up together and it''s on top of their strong relationships that they build strong music.
Their parent production company, Magic Muzik Productions, Inc., which consists entirely of the band, has produced and worked with such RnB and Jazz veterans as Earth, Wind and Fire, The Whispers, The Manhattans, Phil Perry, The Rippingtons and others.
Though the group has received some of their biggest musical breaks through production, concerts are where they really shine. Fans and industry aficionados alike often comment on the live show as far surpassing any expectations (however high) set by the albums. Their shows are as visual as they are aural, with dancing, great inter-member interaction, audience participation, and musicians constantly switching instruments. You have to see it three or four times just to integrate it all.

"There''s a new face in town and his name is Magic - his band (Unified Tribe) is the badest band on the planet. If history repeats itself, then Unified Tribe is the next Earth Wind and Fire."
