The hard-working, tight-as-a-drum Roxy & The Underground Soul Sound are back at The Carleton for a return gig on Friday, March 13th – this time with pals, The Brood – for an ass-shaking night of funk and soul music. Show time is 10 PM and admission is $10 at the door. Get there early!
Roxy & The Underground Soul Sound are a 6 piece soul-funk band from Halifax, Nova Scotia.
The group channels classic soul and funk in their infectious original material. An airtight rhythm section and searing horns lay the foundation over which the five-foot firecracker lead vocalist Roxy Mercier soulfully drives home songs of social justice and love lost and won.
The Brood is a group of time-travelling, genre-bending millennials who are trying to give you the buzz you think your parents had when they went out to dance.
Called “a beautiful smorgasbord of late 20th century radio hits” (Kimberly Sinclair, Spincount), their debut full length album Transistor (available now on SeaYou Records and Turtlemusik) is an imagistic collage of retro-tinged tunes that evoke pop music’s past, but maintains the band’s trademark originality. With a relative rawness and nonchalant virtuosity, The Brood’s live show has attracted a dedicated audience throughout the Canadian east coast. Legendary rocker Joel Plaskett at one time deemed them “the most interesting and exciting live band I’ve seen in Halifax in years.”
