GroundUp feat. Scott Verbeek’s Tribute to Herbie Hancock
Written by Gastown Admin
Doors 7pm/Show 9:30pm
In the 1970’s, Herbie Hancock decided to take a break from acoustic piano and experiment with electric keyboard and synth sounds. His funk driven group the Headhunters wrote groovy classics like Chameleon, Butterfly and Watermelon Man. This night will feature some of the mainstays in Vancouver’s R&B/Funk Scene.
Dave Mergens – Tenor Sax/Vocoder
Jonny Tobin – Keys
