On Charles Bradley’s debut record he was backed by the Menahan Street Band, an amalgamation of members of Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, El Michels Affair, The Budos Band, and Antibalas. The music is steeped in classic soul and afrobeat but displays an acute awareness for hip hop. It is lush, gritty, retro and modern all at the same time. “Charles Bradley may be the greatest soul singer you’ve never heard of. But at 62, the raw-voiced Bradley’s time has come,” wrote the NY POST. The Menahan Street Band will perform an opening set and back Charles Bradley on what will be an evening to remember.
