Where is it??? Who are some of the Nashville notables to check out in this regard? I know I've seen Bob Babbitt and Chester Thompson around here, but who and where else? does anyone play James Brown tunes? PFunk? Sly and the Family Stone? If you or someone you know does, let me know!
Wooten Brothers every Wednesday night at 3rd and Lindsley.
There's a sort of collective of younger folks who just relocated to Nashville, running a small label called GED Soul, with their own studio. They play in several configurations; they rock pretty hard when they bring out vocalists, as in SkyHi and DeRobert and the Half Truths. I also love The Coolin' System, who I got to work with a little last year. They usually release 45s with download cards.
Deep Fried Five is a great funk band that plays regularly around town. Excellent band!
If you love funk, check out Space Capone this Thursday night at Mercy Lounge. Another great funk band!
