THE ALL NEW JAZZED AND BLUE PRESENTS:
THE RAW, FUNKY SOUND OF TWEED FUNK
AND THEiR NEW RELEASE 'LOVE iS'
JUNE 5, 2012 - Formed in the fall of 2010, TWEED FUNK has quickly gained recognition nationally with the release of their debut CD, ‘BRINGIN IT’. The band brings an edge to the music of their forefathers by wrapping together blues, soul, funk, and elements of hip-hop in show band style. Fronted by SMOKEY's sweet, soulful vocals, audiences can quickly hear how SMOKEY was a pick to hit the Billboard Soul Top 20 back in the 70’s on CURTIS MAYFiELDS’s CURTOM RECORDS with the band LOVE’s CHILDREN. JD OPTEKARr’s tasteful guitar lines and roots-rock vocals lend versatility to the band. ERIC's passion for Memphis-style soul in the tradition of DONALD "DUCK" DUNN can be heard in his bass playing. MARCUS “MG” GIBBONS rounds-out the line-up on the drums as one of the area's hottest session drummers who has worked and toured extensively with national acts. This 4 piece band generates a sound much fuller than you would expect all while leaving the space in the music that defines top-shelf blues bands. On April 26th, 2012 TWEED FUNK released their sophomore CD, Love Is. The CD consists of 7 original tracks and 3 covers. World-renown guitarist GREG KOCH was brought on-board to co-produce the CD and the addition of a horn section, B3 organ, and backing female singers on the CD has garnered some excellent early reviews
