A Craig Charles Funk ‘n’ Soul Club special as we present Maceo Parker – one of the world’s finest live performers with full backing band, also featuring Dennis Rollins, in what must be a major highlight of the season. A truly incredible artist who dazzles and thrills audiences wherever he and his amazing backing band play. Followed by actor and DJ Craig Charles playing the finest funk into the early hours. The perfect night out at The Band.
“Quite simply, there is no better living showman than Maceo Parker. Catching one of the alto sax maestro’s…shows is a truly transcendent experience for any fan of funk, jazz, hip-hop, R&B and soul: His performances are never disappointing, always worth the money, and a funky, funky good time.” Westword
“The baddest alto sax in R&B/funk history is back! Parker, sax god in James Brown’s great 1960s band, blows euphorically throughout with his sizzling, blues-rich tone. With terse horn riffs, punchy and rippling bass, snapping drums, chunky guitar, and BBQ-flavored Hammond organ, this is hard funk, boys and girls, of the kind Sly, Funkadelic, the Fatback Band, War, and Soul Bro #1 served up hot in the ’70s.” At The Soundless Dawn
“The audience singing and swaying like trees in a hurricane…Maceo is in the House…blowing a tempest.” Seattle Times
