Local Music Tap: Twin Cities Funk & Soul @ The Dakota
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Old-school funk and soul of the Twin Cities will be alive and well this weekend at the Dakota Jazz Club.
On Friday and Saturday nights, the Secret Stash Soul Revue with Sonny Knight, Maurice Jacox, Jackie Harris and the vocal group, the Valdons, will be performing – showcasing the Twin Cities funk and soul scene.
In 2012, Secret Stash Records released their unearthing of vintage R&B grooves from the 60s and 70s Twin Cities’ music scene, called “Twin Cities Funk & Soul: Rare R&B Grooves from Minneapolis/St. Paul 1964-1979.”
The collection sparked renewed interest for the music and managed to bring together the singers and musicians featured, now called the Secret Stash Soul Revue.
While the old school music has gained steam, there is also an effort to feature new songs, so Minneapolis-based Chastity Brown will also be featured throughout the evening.
