The New Mastersounds w/ The Crooked Stuff

Funk-out double-header at Sweetwater!

The New Mastersounds formed in Leeds UK in 1999 and cut their teeth as the resident live band at a hip dance club, playing every Friday and Saturday night for nearly two years.

Invitations to play club gigs in London soon followed, and before long the band had established a reputation around UK and Europe as forerunners of the deep funk revival scene.

Fast-forward to 2004: having experimented with various line-ups and recorded 2 albums, the original 4-piece band was invited to Chicago to open for the Greyboy All Stars at the House of Blues. This gig kicked off a prolific live career in USA which continues to the present day, backed up by more studio records, live albums, a remix album and 2 compilations.

The New Mastersounds themselves–guitarist Eddie Roberts, drummer Simon Allen, bassist Pete Shand, and keyboardist Joe Tatton— have become as widespread as their influences since their founding nearly twenty years ago. They’ve also become collaborators with many of their influences, working with such idols and peers as Lou Donaldson, Corinne Bailey Rae, Grace Potter, Karl Denson, Melvin Sparks, Fred Wesley, Pee Wee Ellis, Maceo Parker, Zigaboo Modeliste, Art Neville and Ernest Ranglin.

The Crooked Stuff
Heavy electro-funk from San Francisco.

Vibey, thumping and a bit haunting, with spaced-out keys and fuzz driven bass – a cross-pollinated hybrid of heavy soul, electronic funk and head nodding beats. Featuring current, former and special guest members from Vinyl, Galactic, Tree Of Frogs and other Bay Area creative crews – the band has the DNA to move assess and stimulate music loving minds.
