Portland, Prepare For The Funk

2014-10-11-empire-11x17-webGreetings and salutations funkonauts! It’s been a little while, but it’s time for us to have ourselves a little hometown throwdown in our favorite town on this rock we call earth – Portland, Maine.

Saturday October 11th is the date you’ll want scrawl on your refrigerator in permanent marker – that’s when we’ll be serving up a heaping movable feast of funky soul music at EMPIRE. It’s going to be a fun night for all with our new friends OC & The Offbeats starting things off at 10pm, and then we’re going to hit the stage for the rest of the night. Tickets are only $6 and you can grab them online right now.

And if you’re heading out to the show and haven’t gotten yourself a copy of our new album, Speed Of Soul, why swing by a Bull Moose store near you (say the locations in Portland, South Portland, Scarborough, or Lewiston for instance) and get a CD for the ride? Or if you’re into instant gratification, download the whole shebang right now through Bandcamp, iTunes, Google Play, or Amazon.

See you October 11th!

Speed Of Soul Review At The Portland Phoenix

PortlandlogoIn our rush to get ready for album release party at the beginning of the month, we completely forgot to post this review of Speed Of Soul by Sam Pfeilfe of The Portland Phoenix. Dig it people…

People probably underestimate how hard it is to play the brass and woodwinds (saxophone=woodwind). They ain’t harmonicas. Breath control and omberture? They take practice.

Maybe that’s why an arrangement of alto and baritone sax, trombone, and trumpet combining to front a band like Mama’s Boomshack grabs your attention so completely. There just aren’t many bands doing that.

We won’t spoil the rest, go ahead and give it a read for yourself. Lots of love to Mr. Pfeilfe for the kind words and also to whichever staffer at The Phoenix who decided to feature Lisa and John on the front cover of that issue!

If you’re not in the area and want to grab a copy of the new album, you have some options… The album is currently available in CD form at Bull Moose locations (Portland, Scarborough, South Portland, and Lewiston) as well as through their website. Listeners can visit our Bandcamp page to download the album in various lossless formats or purchase downloads through iTunesAmazonGoogle Play, and other online stores.

Speed Of Soul Review at MaineToday.com

Review of Speed Of Soul on MaineToday.com - Mama's BoomshackFunkonauts, it’s a beautiful day made even more beautifuler* by some kind words from Aimsel Ponti on her Face The Music blog at MaineToday.com. Dig it…

My current favorite on the nine-song collection of original tunes is “Love Somebody.” With electric guitar, a mess of horns and awesome backup vocals from Brundage, the song gets it done both musically and lyrically. Regoulinsky will have you singing along before the song is over. “You gotta love somebody/You gotta love somebody/You gotta love somebody if we all want to get along.”

I also dig the slower groove “Nothing More to Say” with the sensational Brundage on lead vocals over a bed of horns: “Walking ’round lonely streets while the sun goes down/comfort in the silence of this dead-end town.”

Head on over and give the whole post a peep! The article will also be published in the Maine Today Magazine section of Thursday’s Portland Press Herald.

Still on the fence about heading out to the show Saturday night? Get off the fence and get on the good foot! Tickets are only $10 in advance and available online right now – you can still get tickets at the door for $12 the night of the show. Essence is going to get the night rolling with sick beats and lyrics at 8pm and then we tear the roof off around 9pm. Still haven’t got tickets? GO!

If you’re not in the area and want to grab a copy of the new album, you have some options… The album is currently available in CD form at Bull Moose locations (Portland, Scarborough, South Portland, and Lewiston) as well as through their website.

* Huh, spellcheck actually says that beautifuler is a word. Who woulda thunk it?
