Jay Nemor Band @ Hoochie Coochie - Sept. 17

Jay Nemor (vcl/alt); Attila (keys); Dag Arne (gtr/fl); David (dms); ? (bs gtr).
(Review by Lance).
An evening of funky soul with just a hint of jazz that had the crowded room dancing and shouting for more. Texas born Nemor has a powerful voice very much in the Gregory Porter mode albeit without the funny hat. The opener with just voice and keyboard was truly impressive, an impact that increased when the remainder of the band joined in.  Nemor's alto playing was minimalistic, never playing 10 notes when one would suffice although he did have a more extended blast on, I think, Suite Soul Music.
It was the second set where it really came alive. Gil Scott-Heron the influence - The Bottle being one of the numbers that gave lift-off.
Dag Arne played some good guitar as well as fluting effectively. Attila (introduced as Attila the Hun) impressed on keys, likewise the young bass guitarist whose name  I didn't catch. David on drums was powerhouse perfect and, whilst the earth didn't totally move for me, it did for just about everyone else!
Another coup for Warren!
