Soul Mechanic funks it up at Rhythm & Brews
Make sure your schedules are clear, Chattanooga, because a funk wave is coming. This Saturday, April 23, Rhythm & Brews is “cranking up the party machine” as Soul Mechanic hits their stage.
Tyler Reddick, singer, bassist, and former member of the band Dose Mojo decided back in 2009 to create a new musical project. He had spent three years creating his “psychedelic soundscapes,” but at that point he wanted to form a new kind of funk.
After he met up with old friend, Clark Jackson, a college athlete known for his jazz-infused chords and modal solos, the duo started down the road towards astounding people with their incredible blend of soul and funk.
They went through a number of drummers and other additions, including Yattie Westfield, a local legend, and Jon Elliot, a saxophonist. Eventually, they settled with English and Kinzalow, other former Dose Mojo members.
Together, the four have spent seven years formulating their “in your face” sound similar to Zeppelin.
The Get Right Band and Nick Lutsko will open for Soul Mechanic. For more information and tickets, visit rhythm-brews.com
