Miller Lite Live Presents

NYE Funk 'N' Soul Ball feat. The Dynamites w/Charles Walker, Ruby Velle & Space Capone

Nashville Scene Critic's Pick …

If your New Year’s resolutions include a marked increase in rump shakin’, get a head start by catching this show. Charles Walker was a star before some of the Dynamites were even born: The enterprising Nashville native followed in the footsteps of mentors James Brown and Jackie Wilson, coming of age just as funk was beginning to emerge from the soul scene. He joined producer Bill Elder and his group The Dynamites after being recognized by the Country Music Hall of Fame’s Night Train to Nashville exhibit in 2006, and he continues to maintain a level of energy envied by performers less than half his age. Labelmates Ruby Velle and the Soulphonics hail from Atlanta, and their early-’70s-vintage funky soul, capped by Velle’s smoking vocals, has been making a big impact in digital markets throughout the fall, thanks to attention from entities as diverse as MTV and IFC. Space Capone kicks it all off with disco-influenced funk as represented on his new self-titled record, which debuted in November.
