THE BAKER BROTHERS live in LondonPublished on Mercoledì, 10 Novembre 2010
UK deep funk and soul veterans THE BAKER BROTHERS just landed at Record Kicks with brand new single "Once I Had a Friend" on 45/Digital download and available on CD/LP on the compilation "SoulShaker Vol.7". The band's revisitation of Curtis Robinson's modern soul stormer has since been collecting praise and support from a number of sources, as well as being featured on many radios. Airplay includes Dom Servini's "Unherd Radio Show" on Colourful Radio, Ginger Tony's "Jump Start" on Solar Radio, "Wicked Jazz Sounds" on Holland's Radio 6, Simon Harrison's "Basic Soul" and many more! Not only is the single taking the airwaves by storm, but it is also featured in the R&B/soul section of iTunes UK, and is the release of the week according to Gary Dennis at the legendary Crazy Beat Records.
Feedback has been just as enthusiastic, and support has come from the likes of Jazzman Gerald (Jazzman Records), Dean Rudland (Acid Jazz / Kent / BGP), Dr. Bob Jones (Future Soul) and DJ Ian Wright, just to name a few. Fans of the band will be pleased to know that The Baker Brothers have a special event planned for this Friday November 12th, in which they will be performing at The Queen Of Hoxton in London alongside Dom Servini (Wah Wah 45s / Shook / Echoes), while in December they will be hitting Switzerland with a gig at the Salzaus in Winterthur on the 9th and at Kaserne in Basel on the 10th. We highly encourage everybody in the vicinities to boogie their bottoms over there (facebook event for London gig here), and check out what all buzz is about!
