Regular Music presents
Average White Band will play the iconic AWB album
in its entirety along with much more besides in this special show. Still one of the world’s top soul, R&B and funk groups, they are best known for the timeless instrumental hit Pick Up the Pieces
. The band earned multiple gold and platinum albums and Grammy nominations with the legendary Atlantic label. They were the first Brits to simultaneously top the US Top 100 Singles, Albums and R&B charts, before gathering similar worldwide honours.
Considering their Scottish roots, AWB's influence on hip-hop and modern R&B is a phenomenon shown by the hundreds of samples from their originals, by such as Erik B & Rakim, Beastie Boys, Tribe Called Quest, P-Diddy, Mark Ronson, Rick Ross, et al. Their dance hit Let’s Go Round Again
remains a fixture of contemporary radio, streaming and the remix world.
Average White Band’s Scots originals, Perth’s own Alan Gorrie making a long overdue return to his home city, and Onnie McIntyre lead today’s lineup with Freddy V and Cliff Lyons on horns, Rocky Bryant on drums and Rob Aries on keys, behind ace vocalist Brent Carter. They maintain their place at the top table of soul and funk music, much to the delight of eclectic and multi-generational audiences everywhere.
