BOOTY VORTEX NEW YEAR'S PARTY

Get the funk on the floor and shake your booty some more. Not so much a "tribute" band to disco, but more of an homage. This is as close to the real deal as we're likely to see. Horns high and heroines in harmony. Can't touch this stuff. If it don't move, it ain't got no groove. Need any more cliches that are actually on target? Seeing is believing. http://www.bootyvortex.com/live/

DAVE KELLER BAND

Dave Keller is one of the finest soul and blues men of his generation. About.com recently said, "Dave Keller is gonna be huge!", and it's starting to seem that way. At huge summer festivals. At jam-packed dance clubs, city halls, college theaters, prison gymnasiums, and blues cruises. You name it. Chances are Keller has played there. And chances are those audiences still remember dancing like crazy to his deep soul singing, his gritty guitar licks, and his super-tight, super-funky band. http://www.davekeller.com/
