At 10:05pm, TM Stevens and the Shocka Zooloo Band started with some nasty, speed funk-rock of "P-Funk (Wants to Get Funked Up)/O.O.C. (Out of Control)" from the TM Stevens CD, BOOM....what can I say??
At 11:50pm, Funk Filharmonik began their funk show with an intro and a little jam that featured some Tower of Power's "Squib Cakes"....the horns were tight on this piece! "Get Yo Feet Back on the Ground" featured some great lead and background vocals, the lead vocals done by former T.O.P. frontman Tom Bowes!! "The Goose, The Skunk and The Fly" was a funky showcase with some hot lead guitarisms and standout basswork....the synthesized grooves and saxophone solo were da bomb! "Down to the Niteclub" and "Maybe It'll Rub Off" were nice and funky, along with "Souled Out" which featured a show-stopping percussion solo and a great drum solo. Then, it was time to get into the Earth, Wind & Fire mode of the show with the EWF funk suite ("Brazilian Rhyme/Serpentine Fire/Sing-a-Song/September/Getaway/Got to Get You Into My Life/Shining Star")...."Brazilian Rhyme" and "Shining Star" featured some great electric piano riffs!! "Funky Stuff" featured some great, funky rhythm guitar riffs! "Jungle Boogie" was good, but better was the soulful vocalizations of Tom Bowes on "So Very Hard to Go". I left before the show was over, at 12:55am, so I can get some sleep and get an early start on a project (that following afternoon).
