Described as soul, funk and fusion, I headed down to check them out. The place was pumping at 10pm when I arrived, and there were a few jam-style instrumental tracks being played by a tight four-piece consisting of guitar, five-string bass, drums, and the key.
While I scoped out that the keys player had three keyboards to work with, I realised I was hearing some acid jazz sounds. Now, I don't like acid jazz on sax (I've been known to call it "squealy jazz"), but when played on keys, it was pretty good. Then, not one, but two lead singers joined the stage, and belted out a commendable version of the classic R&B hit Shakey Ground, and a few requests including two by Chaka Khan. By 11pm the little dance floor was pumping with soul and funk tunes keeping the satisfied crowd dancing until after midnight.
