Just in case you didn’t get the memo, tonight, Friday night, The Terrace will be full of soul because of Blues Fest. And just so that you enjoy as much Blues as you can, Blues Fest continues Saturday night on The Terrace as well, with bands The Right Now, Kane Place Record Club and Johnny Chimes and Gatur Bait.
The Right Now is a band of six talented musicians that are just recently stirring up the pop/blues pool of music. Originally from Chicago, The Right Now has shared stages with bands such as Fitz and The Tantrums, Otis Clay, Kings Go Forth, and Tortured Soul. They have also performed at SXSW, North Coast Festival and Summerfest. With all of their touring, they just have recently released their newest album Get Over You. The album is full of pain, but empowerment after a regretful relationship. The Vinyl District praised The Right Now for their new album Get Over You saying, “the group, fronted by powerful leading lady, Stefanie Berecz, breathes new life into the torch, soul, and R&B traditions. If Joss Stone fronted Fitz and the Tantrums, you might end up with something like what The Right Now have accomplished on this record.” Songs for instance, “Half As Much,” or “Ain’t Going Back” have beats that come from the soul and grab your attention with Stefanie Berecz’s voice.
Just before The Right Now performs, Kane Place Record Club will join us for Blues Fest. Coming from Milwaukee, these group of guys know how to jam with soul but stay unique to themselves. The Express Milwaukee thinks so too, since they stated that Kane Place Record Club has “definitely captivated by soul and R&B, [and] the band has little interest in merely duplicating the works of others.” The reason why their songs are intriguing is because they combine fast pace beats with sultry R&B. You can hear it in their song “Sunshine,” which you can download at the bottom of this page.
Earlier on in the night though, we will greet Johnny Chimes & Gator Bait to the stage. A Madison person himself, Johnny Chimes creates R&B with an addition of rock in order to capture the moment of soul. He’s had the pleasure of performing for 35 years and is still going to bring us his classic jazz/rock/blues sound. Experimentation with instruments can be heard in songs like “No Brag, Just Fact” and “The Language of Love.” Come join him and Gaitur Bait to kick off the night of Blues.
So there you have it- now you must be on The Terrace this Saturday night to continue Blues Fest all weekend long. For just a little preview of the night, check out the videos below and download “Sunshine” by Kane Place Record Club.
