Live at the Five Spot feat. The Breeds
Contemporary Art Center of Peoria – Friday, July 28th // 5:30-7:30 PM Admission: members - $8, nonmembers - $12 Peoria's most talked about new blues outfit "the Breeds" present an exciting blend of Delta and big city blues, Motown and Memphis R&B, fusion and oldies. The band covers BB King, Curtis Mayfield, Marvin Gaye, Commodores, Little Milton, Robert Johnson, KC & The Sunshine Band, Bruce Springsteen and the Four Tops. The band is heavy on poignant R&B ballads as well as rip roaring jump blues and barrel house shuffles with a tasty balance between the sweet tenor vocals and stellar blues, jazz and soul plucking of guitarist lead singer Clarence Henley and the bass virtuosity and harmonies of bassist Joe Roland. Keyboardist vocalist John Longmire adds a barrelhouse edge with his honky tonk piano work, cheesy organ and smoky vocals. Putting the bottom on the band is journeyman veteran percussionist John Janosky. John has a steady groove and pocket that he combines with precision riffs and tempos to provide the Breeds with their trademark slow groove.
