Wow! I can’t express my gratitude enough for all the sellouts we had on our last tour in the UK. One thing that I noticed was that the audiences are getting younger and younger and that’s a good thing. To know young people are getting into funk and coming out supporting it, live music is a comeback. What I think is, this generation is getting tired of the manufactured sound because that’s only sounds they ever heard. So when they actually see musicians playing together live and interacting with audiences, it’s amazing and a whole new experience. A live show can be transforming. Music when done right can be life changing. I hope that our music has made a difference in your life some kind of way and thank you again for your support.
Just in case you haven’t heard; Chaka Khan did a remake our Bus Stop tune we did in the 70s…new words and new title “Like Sugar”. With The Queen of Funk and Ambassador of funk it’s got to be funky. Hey, do a Download and enjoy yourself.
Please if you searching for new music by the Band on Amazon or online music stores, for our new music we now record under the name “The Fatback Band/New Generation”. For our old music we use the name The Fatback Band or go http://www.acerecord.co.uk. Our Website has been hacked we are in the process of restoring to bring it back up to date so bear with me a few more days and we should be back up.
There is something I don’t understand. Why promoters don’t book more Bands, especially funk groups… The reason I brought this up, is for five years I have been trying to put together a world funk tour and I can’t find anyone interested. People around world are crying for this kind of thing and it’s more like a music history tour…” When Funk Bands was King”. Young people today don’t know anything about this. Only what they read.
When I say people are crying for this kind of thing I mean live music, to see someone performing and playing real instruments is an experience you never forget. To bath in it, while it’s being cooked right in front of your face, to feel it moving through your whole body, while you lose yourself in the groove. That’s the kind of experience you get at a live performance. And if you ever get chance, catch a live funk band show and see exactly what I mean and tell me about your experiences.
If you’re thinking about having The Fatback Band for one of your events, now is the time to book.
Love and Music,
