The Muni | Saturday | 5:30pm
A heady mix of soulful blues, shaking funk, and Zep-style riffing, this is “Stanley Clarke strapped to the front of a Intercity 125 with Janis Joplin driving”.
Lead singer Lorna Fothergill has a dynamic and powerful vocal style, guitarist Jules uses an unorthodox mix of melodic and rhythmical improvisation, bassist Ian has an unusual style, being left handed, and stringing the bass upside-down. Completing the line-up is drummer Hayden Doyle, whose confident grooves combine to give the band a sound quite unlike any of their contemporaries on the modern blues circuit.
