Mother Bunch
Mother Bunch
Drawing from the traditions of New Orleans soul, hard gospel, and dirty nineties rap, Mother Bunch plays dance music with the narrative complexity of fiction. Take the southern strut of the Meters, the sweat and strangeness of James Brown, and then invite Leonard Cohen and Too Short to collaborate on the lyrics, and you might have something approaching their style, which bandleader Daniel Menasche shorthands as “sex gospel.” Menasche testifies in grunts, howls, and moans, while identical twin divas Christie and Darcy Bradley complete a call-and-response vocal style that builds to jubilee intensity. New Orleans native Kurt Hagardorn challenges soul legend Steve Cropper with his rough-edged, minimalist guitar work, while drummer Chris Lay and bassist Chris Friesen craft an underlying funk that’s impossible to resist. This show will celebrate the release of their debut album, “Dirty Theory."
The Satin Chaps
The Satin Chaps
The Satin Chaps ply their trade in the largely uncharted waters of European style go-go/ soul of ‘60s era groove-pop composers like Ingfried Hoffman, Gert Wilden, and Heidi Brühl. To make it palatable stateside (and to make it their own), they mix hints of American purveyors like Memphis soul kings The Bar-Kays and Pac NW garage legends the Wailers. Aided by the howl of their three-piece horn section, the whiz-bang of their Hammond organ, and the percussion necessities to make it all sparkle, the Chaps specialize in sweaty, booty-shaking music. Hailed as “a triumphant celebration of all things rhythm and blues” by Blizt Magazine and “The Party Album of the year” by The Vinyl Anachronist music blog, the group’s self-released debut long player, Might I Suggest The Satin Chaps, is part homage to the likes of Booker T and the MGs, The Mohawks, and Herb Alpert’s Tijuana Brass.
