ORGANIC FUNK

ORGANIC; Having an organization similar in its complexity to that of living things.

FUNK; An earthy quality appreciated in music such as jazz or soul, down-to-earth soulfully expressed sound, related to the real nitty-gritty or
fundamental essence of life, soul to the max.

Toronto based band Organic Funk launched their latest CD entitled “Speak Now” on February 10, 2011 at the Legendary Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto, Canada to an enthusiastic crowd. The first single from the album entitled “For Today” was pre-released to radio and the immediate reaction was excellent garnering airplay coast to coast in Canada. The band has been compared to “a pre-popular Maroon 5”. The comments from radio have been very encouraging… “There is something very pure and raw about them…” “They may be on to something…” “Definitely a winner…” “Absolutely love it“.

The funk/rock quartet composes, produces and performs music that has been described as “contemporary rock with a funky groove and a hint of retro”. Although the group aspires to perform their own original material, they win approval for their original songs by interspersing well known musical titles that blend with their originals, elevating their songs alongside the classic hits. They have built a strong following in their home territory and have an excellent web presence through their profile on My Space: http://www.myspace.com/organicfunk .

Perhaps Canadian reviewer Ryan Stephenson Price sums it up best in a recent review of an Organic Funk concert in Toronto – here is an excerpt:
“…If you’ll take anything away from this review though – see them live if ever given the opportunity: they have a way of playing off each other that really emotes to the crowd. You can tell just how much fun they’re having, and they want you to join in too. They’ll leave you grooving in your shoes all night long, you’ll be singing along with their covers, and you just might get an invite to a party from some random attractive Europeans that were enticed to enter the venue from off the street because they heard some funky tunes as they happened to be walking by. What, that doesn’t happen to everybody? Well, clearly you were at the wrong concert that night…” RYAN STEPHENSON PRICE, THE INDIE MACHINE May 13, 2011

kev morse 2Kev Morse writes from experience, sings from the heart and plays the guitar like it was meant for him to play. An evening spent listening to Kev play his guitar and sing his songs is like an evening spent with an old friend. His songs reach out, grab you, they hold on tight and they stay with you.

Check out the outstanding “Happy Ever After” at the :45 mark here. This one should be in rotation on CBC Radio.

Take in Kev performing tracks from his new  “In The Blood” CD at The Bistro at Silvercreek.

Random Roads, Acoustic Vocal Band, The Shepherd’s Crook, Friday, October 17 at 8 pm

Random Roads is one of Georgetown’s hottest local acts. Kudos to The Shepherd’s Crook for locking them down this week.

We’re talking soaring harmonies backed by a mix of classic acoustic instruments. Look for accordion, mandolin, banjo, guitar and percussion to complement their full vocal sound. Always an interesting band as the five members take turns on lead vocals. With their loyal following, it can be a good idea to arrive early for seating.

Members are Bob Gee, Jim Broughton, Christine Ford, Ian Jarvie and Peter Perko.random roads
