Murfreesboro’s Masseuse gets smoothly funky
Have a thing for funk and rock music? Masseuse will deliver smooth but edgy tunes at JJ’s Bohemia on Saturday, Jan. 24.
Masseuse hails from Murfreesboro, and blends vocal melodies with smooth guitars and the grace of a cello. Hearing their music takes audiences on a pleasant ride—with some serious detours into funk. The band promises their music will massage audience’s minds.
The band started their musical journey while at Middle Tennessee State University. As students, band members discovered a shared love of progressive jams. Masseuse draws their inspiration from ’70s jazz-rock giants Steely Dan, the genuis that was Frank Zappa, and classic Pink Floyd.
Masseuse’s songs combine harmonious melodies and hilarious lyrics. You can’t help but smile when the band starts playing and opening up on stage. And some will surely find themselves dancing and singing along.
Masseuse will be bringing the funk to Chattanooga this Saturday from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. The band has a Facebook page, and you can listen to their music on Soundcloud.
