BRAND NEW HEAVIES
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 8PM
They’re back with a vengeance. So said The Hollywood Reporters in a glowing review of THE BRAND NEW HEAVIES’ sizzling performance last May at the legendary Roxy Nightclub in Los Angeles. In the early 1990s, London-based The Brand New Heavies created a musical movement by bringing soul music back to live instrumentation and impassioned vocals. Sassy, soulful and emotive vocalist NDea Davenport, guitarist Simon Bartholomew, drummer/keyboardist Jan Kinkaid and bassist Andrew Love Levy built their sound around the music they loved: classic American funk and soul music. The bands infectious grooves and inspiring songs -- including Never Stop, Stay This Way and Dream On Dreamer -- set in motion a 1990s musical revolution that permeates throughout the neo soul sound of today. Freshly reunited after an extensive layoff, the group has returned with a renewed sense of purpose for Get Used To It. The masterful collection skillfully blends the classic live funk and soul sound that was the signature of the group when they came out with their stunning self-titled debut album 15 years ago. The BRAZILIAN GIRLS’ eponymous debut earned tremendous critical acclaim. The New York Times described the band as “catchy, musically ambitious and proudly theatrical…irresistible,” Entertainment Weekly praised the album as “…unceasingly irresistible,” while the Associated Press called it one of the “Top 10 albums of 2005.” Rolling Stone wrote of the band “…so finessed that they leave their scent on every musical landscape they visit…” and The Miami Herald said “…the best debut in a decade, since Missy Elliott, PJ Harvey, Massive Attack and Sleater-Kinney first blew people’s minds.” Building upon tremendous critical acclaim and consistently sold-out performances, Brazilian Girls return with the eagerly anticipated Talk To La Bomb.
