Additional Info:
AVERAGE WHITE BANDAWB are widely regarded as one of the best soul and funk bands in the history of music. Though best known for their timeless instrumental mega-hit ‘Pick Up the Pieces’ the band’s strength actually lay in their consistently accomplished song-writing, stretching across several gold selling albums and multi- grammy nominations for the legendary Atlantic Records. Somewhat incongruously, given their Scottish roots, the six piece took the influences of their R&B; heroes – people like Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Donny Hathaway and others – and developed their own ‘authentic’ sound which was eagerly adopted by black audiences in the US and elsewhere. While a good number of cuts – ‘Cut The Cake’ and ‘Let’s Go Round Again’- became hit singles, many other album tracks, like ‘Schoolboy Crush’ and ‘Stop The Rain’ became much sampled grooves. Many more tunes, such as ‘Cloudy’, and ‘A Love Of Your Own’- amongst many others- stand alongside some of the finest soul ‘album tracks’ ever recorded.The current line-up of the band – this time with noted US recruits augmenting founder members Alan Gorrie and Onnie McIntyre – continue to record and tour around the world to ongoing critical and audience acclaim.All this and more is perfectly illustrated in the band’s latest release, “AWB R&B”, a live CD recorded in Austin,Texasin September of 2015.Band Members Fred Vigdor -Backup Vocalist,Keyboardist,Wind Alan Gorrie -Bassist,Guitarist,Vocalist Onnie McIntyre -Backup Vocalist,Guitarist Brent Carter -Vocalist Rob Aries -Bassist,Keyboardist Rocky Bryan – tDrummer Cliff Lyons -Backup Vocalist,Keyboardist,WindSeating is First Come, First ServedFull Dinner available$10 Food & Beverage Minimum Per Person at the TablesKama’aina discounts available.
