FIRST FRIDAYS w/ THE M-TET 4.30-8.30
“In this day and age, we really need the music that The M-Tet makes: gritty and grimy organ funk.” – Flea Market Funk. Fresh off of the release of “Finger Poppin’ Time!”, The M-Tet is rooted in the deep study of 1960’s Organ-based R&B, first tackling the Meters’ 1968 release in its entirety. Soon after, adding their own soul-drenched originals as well as noted tracks by Funk, Inc., Roy Ayers, Archie Bell and the Drells.

FLOWTILLA 2.oo-5.oo
Flowtilla play a sophisticated blend of psychedelic world groove jazz-funk: “The group takes a theme or a rhythm and they run with it. The guitar soars along over drummer Jan Jackson and bassist Ellen Schoenwetter’s driving grooves. Len, Ellen, and Jan all definitely have some serious playing ability.”

HIGH STANDARDS DUO 2.oo-5.oo
