Brand New Heavies

at den Atelier Doors: 7:00 pm

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

Hip-hop DJs try to create the frenzy of a James Brown jam, but the drum machines they use can’t match his sweaty intensity. The Brand New Heavies, on the other hand, succeed by creating their dynamic jazz-funk the old-fashioned way. They pound a drum kit, blow mean horns, smoke on guitar and bass, and jam with true exuberance. Their pelvis-pushing grooves get an effervescent quality from the ethereal vocalist┬áN’Dea Davenport. Even if it ain’t the tight, burning, churning soul of James Brown’s Funky People, that’s okay. The Brand New Heavies have produced the grooviest jazz-funk in years.
