North Side Tavern, 4163 Hamilton Ave. – Cincinnati, OH
Doors @ 8:00pm, No Cover
Also appearing Go-Go Buffalo, Founding Fathers and Counterfeit Money Machine
The Almighty Get Down is busy preparing a new album, but not too busy to bring the funk to the North Side Tavern. TAGD appears on Friday, March 17 with special guests Go-Go Buffalo, Founding Fathers and Counterfeit Money Machine. As a teaser, scroll down for “Good Old Times,” the first single from the forthcoming release; or a blistering live version of “Family,” captured live by Audiotree at the Woodward Theater.
Named Cincinnati’s Best Live Act in 2014, The Almighty Get Down is known for its electrifying live show. The band brings a high-octane mix of funk, rock and soul; perfect for fans of Sharon Jones, Black Joe Lewis or The Alabama Shakes. Anchored by a fierce horn section, frontman Willy Morran steers TAGD through a night of original songs, augmented by the occassional deep-tracks cover that you didn’t see coming.
“The Almighty Get Down stands out among the Neo-Funk crowd, like a big smiling elephant in a party of monkeys. It’s plain to hear – this is feel-good music, old-school Funk raised in the Modern era and played impeccably. It’s obviously influenced by the pioneers of the genre, but injected with new energy.” (Midpoint Music Festival – 2015)
“Cincinnati funk revivalists The Almighty Get Down are quickly becoming a must-see live act in Ohio with the word quickly spreading. The seven-member band creates an original sound, which blends ’70s funk and soul, rock, and pop with a jam band’s mentality and an insanely fun and energetic live show to match.” (Dayton City Paper)
