The Burnt Sugar Arkestra returns to the Thunderbird Cafe fresh off a Lincoln Center commissioned Rick James tribute and on their way to Detroit and Cleveland to pay musical homage to Melvin Van Peebles’ Sweet Sweetback soundtrack and to one of the most, if not the most iconic rock star of our time … David Bowie.
Two sets of Rick James, Sweetback and Bowie with a dollop of Burnt Sugar originals on top, but making this really special … 91.3FM WYEP The Soul Show’s Mike Canton spinning that junk-in-the-trunk funk before, between and after this will be a one time only event!
In its third decade on 91.3fm WYEP, The Soul Show journeys the landscape of classic and modern R&B, with generous jaunts into funk, jazz and fusion. Host Mike Canton’s mission is to feature the not-so-popular, nevertheless amazing, songs of the genre’s legends and lesser known heroes each Saturday from 2 until 5pm. For the listener who has forever lived and loved this music, The Soul Show is a familiar, comfortable place. For those in the discovery mode, it is our pleasure to spread your musical wings.
