OUTCALLS, A FEMALE FRONTED SEXTET LED BY MELISSA WIMBISH AND BRITT OLSEN-ECKER, DRAWS INFLUENCE FROM MULTIPLE GENRES. BOTH CLASSICALLY TRAINED SINGERS, THEIR SONG-BY-SONG APPROACH TO MUSIC-MAKING DRAWS LYRICAL CONTENT FROM CURRENT POLITICAL AND SOCIAL HAPPENINGS. THE BALTIMORE-BASED GROUP STRIVES TO REACH AUDIENCES NOT ONLY THROUGH GOOD MUSIC, BUT ALSO EXCELLENT STORYTELLING AND STAGE PRESENCE. THEY WERE THE WINNERS OF "BEST OVERALL SET" AT 89.7 WTMD'S 2016 BALTIMORE BAND BLOCK PARTY.
Joe Keyes and the Late Bloomer Band
Joe Keyes is equal parts front man, poet and band conductor. The Freehold, NJ, native found his orchestra in late 2009 in The Late Bloomer Band, a rotating cast of Baltimore/DC-based musicians. The band takes audiences back to the days of Miles Davis and early P-Funk, when big bands were lead by strong forces of individuals. The band’s brand of live improvisation and musical sophistication presents a different experience at every show.
While Keyes draws inspiration from musical mentors Gil Scott-Heron and Sun Ra, The Late Bloomer Band brings a modern interpretation to funk, jazz, rock and a variety of other genres.
The Late Bloomer Band’s members, in their mid-20s, help keep 52-year-old Keyes young, and come from various Baltimore and D.C.-based bands. Having grown together musically, the band’s polished tightness has landed collaborations and live shows featuring original Fishbone members Angelo “Dr. Madd Vibe” Moore and Norwood Fisher.
P Funk, Fela Kuti, Joe Bowie and Defunkt, Gil Scott Heron, Sun Ra, Bob Marley
