February’s Record Club: NEW ORLEANS funk & soul

grcneworleans

We’re back on Thursday 9th February for a taste of the funky flavours and soulful sounds of New Orleans.

The Crescent City has long been a cultural melting pot, especially when it comes to music. The birthplace of jazz, home to the blues, not mention rhythm & blues and rock & roll, it has produced more than it’s fair share of influential musicians, songwriters and performers. We’d need more than just one evening to even begin to scrape the surface of all it has to offer, so instead we’ll be focusing on the soul and funk that emanated from New Orleans in the 1960s and 70s. And what better time to celebrate than during the month of Mardi Gras?

Several names loom large from this period – songwriter and producer Allen Toussaint, singer Lee Dorsey, and funk legends The Meters, who also doubled up as the backing band on dozens of classic funk and soul tunes during this time – we’ll be playing records featuring all three. We’ll also hear from Mac Rebennack, the session pianist turned Night Tripper, better known as Dr John, with some heavy voodoo vibes, along with whatever else we can squeeze on the turntable.

See you there!
