GROOVIN’ UP SLOWLY | Vocalist Donna Woodall joins us for COME TOGETHER
“The Beatles will exist without us.” George Harrison
Recently, I got a call to play bass with vocalist Donna Woodall. During the show we did a couple of Beatles songs and it got my wheels turning. I talked to Donna after the show about possibility joining our group for some shows doing Beatles covers. She was all about it! So the idea was born-“Come Together” The Beatles Soulfully Reimagined. Spanning the Beatles catalog using versions from artists such as: Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Marcus Miller & Herbie Hancock, the 6-piece group funkifies the Fab Four.
I’ve always loved the Beatles music. Their musical evolution within such a short period of time showcases their remarkable creativity. Once Ringo joined the band, the Fab Four were only together for eight years. Eight years! Within that span they composed some of the most diverse melodies, harmonies and rhythms within popular music.
Although they broke up in 1970, the music of the Beatles continues going strong. I guess George was right; the Beatles will exist without them. We hope to see you this year as we inject a little KBP into these fascinating and timeless songs.
Currently diggin on:
-Shepherd’s Pie @ Ashling on the Lough: Will make you feel a little Blighty!
-Lynne Arriale Trio: One of my favorite versions of Blackbird.
-Sirius XM-“The Beatles Channel” Songs, history, stories, interviews…..Beatlemania.
-A Hard Days Write: Steve Turners book on the stories behind the songs.
-We will also be performing as our six-piece instrumental group in support of our new album “Parallels Ch. II” coming out in May. Come Together shows will be specified on our Dates page.
Hi and welcome to our new web site! We are excited for the New Year and wanted to give you a heads up on what to look out for with KBP in 2016.
