Music Monday: Big Brother Thunder and the MasterBlasters

September 29, 2014

I'm all for indie, folksy, rockin music (Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver, From Indian Lakes...), you may not guess that I can also jam out to some soul jazzy music. Ray Charles, Otis Redding, Curtis Mayfield - they're totally hip too. I feel like I'm sitting in Memphis listening to some great bluesy tunes when I listen to one of our local loves - Big Brother Thunder and the MasterBlasters! (Yes, I did just compare them to Ray Charles. We have some great talent here in STL.)

They're highly praised in St. Louis; the Riverfront Times Best Funk/Soul Band of 2014. I can totally see why! This rockin' group graced the stage at Lou Fest a few weeks ago with their sweet beats - "creating an inescapably danceable sound." I'm loving their song, Genuine, right now. Give it a listen.

We're so excited that we'll get to see Big Brother Thunder and the MasterBlasters at #STLFW! They'll be playing at the Saint Louis Fashion Fund's Emerging Designer After Party on Wednesday, October 15th. You can get tickets here. We'll see you there!
