Back before computers and cell phones and i-everything, when we were still trying to find our way, in the corners and pockets of our country when things were simpler, though always complicated by the human condition, there was music. It spoke of the lives of our families; the older generations before you or me, before Mom and Dad, before Grandma and Grandpa. It was the feeling of the soft blades of grass between your toes on a warm summer day; of a tall cold glass of lemonade after a back-breaking day of work in the hot sun. It was dancing with your best girl under the stars. It was the voice of life and family and experience and love and heartbreak. It is where we come from and who we are; our roots. Generations later, Ten Cent Howl has distilled that distinctly American experience into song once more.
Critt’s Juke Joint is a live Soulprovisational music experience that feature a revolving line-up of amazing musicians and guest appearances by legends like comedian Sinbad, drummer Bernard ‘Pretty’ Purdie, the Grammy Award winning guitarist/producer Eric Krasno and PFunk’s Kim Manning to name a few!
The funky vibes of Critt’s Juke Joint both preserves and evolves the seldom discussed ‘Chitlin Circuit’ sound that crafted American Pop Music as we know it now. Be prepared to dance!
