Freekbass returns for a hometown concert on Friday, November 23rd, the day after Thanksgiving, for his annual “Funksgiving” show at The Southgate House Revival. This is now his fourth year, and the show has become an annual event.
He kicks it up a notch this year, bringing in special guest, Sammi Garett from the Brooklyn-based band, Turkuaz. Super funkateers Rico Lewis (George Clinton/Parliament Funkadelic) and “Razor Sharp” Johnson (Bootsy Collins’ Rubber Band) will round out the final line-up. The pair, along with Garett, also star in a music video for the new Freekbass single, “Steppin’ Outta Line,” which had over 160,000 views on YouTube in its first month. The single was co-written band produced by another Cincinnati native, Itaal Shur, who won a Grammy award for the song “Smooth” by Santana.
Freekbass says he wants to get creative with the show this year and plans to make this an audience-immersive experience.
“It’s always special playing at home, and this year we are going to turn it up a bit,” hints Freekbass. “Our friend Sammi (Garett) always takes things to another level with her talent and style, and we have a few other surprises in store too.”
