Get Up with the Get Downs
Since 2008, Get Up with the Get Downs have been performing hits from the Golden Age of Funk for thousands of Chicagoans. While the eight-piece band bases their set on the hits of James Brown, they often slip in more obscure tunes from the likes of Mitch Mitchell and Renaldo Domino, demonstrating their love and knowledge of the era. Concentrating solely on live performance, each show is a high energy dance party that evokes “The Hardest Working Man in Show Business.”
Black Diet is a garage/indie/soul band with a sartorial flair. Indebted to Stax records, they put on shows that look like Baptist church services held at punk houses. Part of a stream of vintage sounding acts coming out of Minneapolis' Pinata Records, they're spitting out sharp, testimonial jams for the masses.
