Harry & the Hitmen: classic soul for contemporary ears

Harry & the Hitmen are a soul-laden six piece that rely heavily on lighthearted, loose takes on some of the most influential sounds of Motown. Each member is an accomplished multi-instrumentalist and well-versed in on-the-spot improvisation, making every experience a unique and certifiable hit. Last fall they released their debut album, Deep In Your Soul, and are gearing up for a string of live dates this fall. - Joshua D. Huver


Big Sticky Mess plays Boom Boom Room 07.22

Bay area funk sensation, Big Sticky Mess, is playing Boom Boom Room on July 22nd in support of Victor Little's Big Hit. Big Sticky Mess is at once a tongue-in-cheek homage to '70s funk, and an impressive display of musicianship, with wah-laden guitars, saxophones and punchy percussion abounding on their 2016 full-length release, "It All Looks the Same in the Dark." Listen to the title track below! - Ethan Ames
