Hi-Just wanted to see if you could possibly pass the word on that the legendary Motown studio band, The Funk Brothers, will be playing two dates in the UK with guest vocalists Steve Winwood and Isaac Hayes.
The dates are Jan. 29th at the Apollo in Manchester and Jan. 30th in London at Royal Festival Hall.
We will be playing some predictable Motown songs but also some off-the-beaten track Motown and non-Motown songs the guys played on like "Function At The Junction," "Here Come The Judge," "Cool Jerk," "The Flick," and others.
Its usually not good form to go on websites to promote commercial ventures but in the case of the Funk Brothers, it falls more into the realm of a good deed as theyve waited four decades for the recognition and awards they e now receiving.
There are other European dates also scheduled on the tour which can be found on our website: www.standingintheshadowsofmotown.com
All the best, Allan (Dr. Licks) Slutsky
