A new supergroup came to life for the first time last night at American Beauty in NYC (Wednesday, March 15). The band Juke Joint consisted of Nate Edgar and Nikki Glaspie, both of The Nth Power, as well as Joe Tatton of The New Mastersounds and Jeffery Lockhart of The Sam Kininger Band.
For anyone who is familiar with any of these musicians, it comes as no surprise that this four-piece is all about the funk. Delivering an evening full of fiery beats and dance-inducing grooves, this group fit perfectly together like pieces of a puzzle. James Casey was on hand to sit in on a few songs.
Although there is no word if this project will continue in the future, there are two more shows scheduled for this week that should be on your schedule if at all possible. Last tonight in Hartford CT. Tonight (Friday) they stop in Manchester NH at The Jewel and finishing up in Boston MA at Bull Macabes.
