I was ready to hear some more old time soul after hearing Wheedle’s Groove rock Bumbershoot, and was happy to hear they were playing Neumos on October 1.
“Old time” being soul & funk music from the 60’s & 70’s – my childhood. . . Hey, wait, that can’t be that long ago. . .
OK. Maybe it was. A hip-hop opener – Sol. He really got people moving (well, young people. . .)!
Here’s a video of him from the Sound Off last year at the EMP (from the offical EMP/SF YouTube page):

What a great line up for Wheedle’s Groove! Members from all these soul band back from the day, and they still got it.
Here’s Patrinell Staten, better know as Pastor Pat Wright from the Total Experience Gospel Choir these days, singing her hit Little Love Affair:
This one’s an awesome jam session – Humpty Dumpty! The band actually asked people to YouTube this one:
OK! I may not have to move to New Orleans after all!
Somebody’s Gonna Burn Ya:
and towards the end of the show, I Just Want to Be (Like Myself):
The Wheedle’s Groove movie website is at: http://www.wheedlesgroovemovie.com/
It includes links to their music, and I’m hoping we hear a lot more of it live!
