Rooster Blues hosts Chicago bandBy Hannah Muncher | 09/19/2011 11:32pm
Lubriphonic is a band out of Chicago, Ill. that digs deep into their Windy City roots of blues, rock, gospel and funk, to bring their own sound of “Funky Rock N’ Roll.” This Thursday, Lubriphonic will bring their sound to Tuscaloosa’s newest downtown venue, Rooster Blues House.
The band first started with drummer Rick King and guitarist Giles Corey, who were artists-in-residence at Chicago’s Checkerboard Lounge. Corey and King hosted auditions in search for Chicago’s best blues, funk and rock musicians to become the next members of the Lubriphonic band.
Now the band is made up of five musicians, with five different backgrounds and five different instruments.
“Rick and I hired people we wanted to play with no matter what instrument they played and see where that would lead us,” Corey said.
Even though most would never think a saxophone, guitar, drums, bass, trombone and trumpet would make great music, Lubriphonic brings what Corey says “is a dance party, let loose, have a good time type of music.”
The show, with sounds of old-school R&B and a little funk and rock ‘n’ roll, will start at 9:30 p.m. and there will not be a cover to get in.
