At CBGB's, NYC (3/16/01)
A fan dances with the funk-rock vocalist, The Vitamin Luqee!
At 11:45pm, NYC funk-rock gangstas, FUNKFACE, started
their stankalicious set with the way-back-in-the-deep-swamp, raw ultra-funk
song, "Down in the Bayou"!!! This live
version had more rock influence with smotherin' mega-ton bass licks by
Frankeebeans, scorchin' guitar licks by the FUNKFACE guitar army (Jerome
Jordan, Tim "Tempura" Groove & 40 oz. Jeff), and strong vocals by
the Vitamin Luqee and Jerome Jordan!!!
"Hoochie Smooch" (a song about
"schmoking" weed) was another hot rock song with a fiery guitar
explosion by Jerome!! "40 Acres and a Mule" was in the vein of
"Hoochie Smooch". "Shred" was some shredding rock shit that
ripped up CBGB's (once again, is that really HARD to do?) "Sweetback"
was some funky R&B shit with some tight drumbeats by Ramsey Jones and a flashback
of the Fat Albert theme (Na na na.....gonna have a good time!)!
The Vitamin Luqee with bad-ass rock guitarist, Jerome Jordan!!
The next song was a FUNKY-ROCK, SERIOUS
ASS-SHAKIN' ROMP that featured some of Frankeebean's highly potent bass riffs
that'll create avalanches in the Himalayas FROM WAY OVER HERE IN DA BIG
APPLE!!! The drumming was PHAT, and some
was the smolderin' guitarisms of 40 oz. Jeff! Was "Time" supposed to
be a mellow tune? Well, somebody better tell these fellas because they were
still kinda on the heavy rock tip. The last song, "Willy", was
dedicated to an alcohol fanatic named Reese. This song (which was the low point
of the show) was some punk-rock noise with moments of funk guitar and
groovalicious bass. The most interesting part of the song ws the cartoonish
falsetto voice of the Vitamin Luqee!
The show was over at 12:25am.
