Doors 8:00 PM / Show 8:30 PM
Local Motive performances are filled with lyrical messages, irresistible soulful melodies, and the spirit of the old-school rhythm & blues. Joy emanates from the stage when this talented collective of musicians plays their blend of classic soul, Motown, funk, & old-fashioned rock 'n' roll.
Influences of soul legends like Ray Charles & Sam Cooke are obvious when bandleader, Mike Vinopal, sings from his toes, as are contemporary influences like The Black Keys & Gary Clark Jr. Sweet brass lines from the Local Motive horns & grooving guitars from the Vinopal cousins create a huge sound, filled with hooks you'll be whistling in the morning.
Garage-soul music with driving rhythms and raw vocals which you can't fully place into a box, is what Holly, specializes in. Creating idiosyncratic songs that combine an array of influences from the likes of Sam Cooke & Leon Bridges to Wilco and The Smoking Popes, this Chicago outfit is orchestrating soothing tunes with a high energy performance and it's working.
