Anybody here listen to funk & soul? I probably listen as much to this kinda thing as I do prog and classic rock.

The covers band I play in specialises in rocky funk, so I've always got something of this nature on the go.

Fav's of mine are;
Earth, Wind & Fire (spot the G link!)
Sly & the Family Stone
The Average White Band
Stevie Wonder
Chic
Temptations

Amongst others

Yes - I love all those, especially EW&F

I also liked the 80s stuff from groups such as Shalamar, Cameo and Kool & The Gang.

In fact, I saw Kool & The Gang at Wembley Arena around that time - what a great night!

I would love to have seen EW&F in their heyday.

Couldn't agree more, I have a soft spot for their version of 'Walk on By' off the 'Feel No Fret' album.

You should also check out my current favourite band - Snarky Puppy, they are very soulful and funky in a Jazz way. I have to admit I'm a huge fan as I have seen then 4 times in the last year or so. Currently in the office listening to

and it's got it's funky moments!

If you haven't come across it here is a great single by The PB Underground called 'Cybernet Situation', released last year I believe and described on their webpage as a dirty funk megariff!
It has the vibe of those classic 70's funk bands.

Listening to funk band Dynasty on youtube made me find this tune which is a gem for the complex chord changes nerds such as me:

Anybody interested in some current funk/soul should check out Brother Strut a UK funk ensemble who make some really good quality music.
They have an upcoming UK tour and should be well worth seeing (I have my tickets).

This is what Blues and Soul Magazine siad about their debut album.

10/10
“Good is not how I would describe this stuff at all. No. It is actually bloody brilliant. One of the best soul and funk albums I have heard for a long time. Certainly one of the hottest debuts of recent times on an independent label.”
