The Brand New Heavies @ Ronnie Scott's 7/2/11

The band is pretty good.  It was so fun to see the guitar and bass players come out with their shirts unbuttoned and boas on.  It really makes me think UK!  The boas didn't stay on for too long.  The band was great.  They also had a trumpet and trombone a female percussionist (shakers) and backup vocalist (I enjoyed her voice more than the lead's), and keyboards.  The lead singer was fun, it's just for me it brought the funk down a little and made it more soul funk than funky funk.  The instrumental when she left the stage for one was awesome.

It was especially cool that not only was dancing allowed, other people were dancing!  After a bunch of songs, everybody was dancing.

It was a good time.
