This past Saturday night, the 10-piece power funk/soul group, West End Blend, celebrated the release of their brand new album, Rewind, at Hartford's Arch Street Tavern. This group is a can't miss act and has become one of the hotter young bands in the jam scene. Saturday night made for a packed house at Arch Street and a night full of material from the band's diverse,funky catalog. Thankfully, MKDevo was there to capture some amazing photos, as well as this HD video of one of the most soulful takes on "Tweezer" that we have heard in recent memory.
This appears to be business as usual for these guys. Earlier this summer, the band gave us an equally amazing take on the Grateful Dead's "Throwing Stones" as part of the JamBase "Songs of Their Own" series. Keep an eye on these guys. Follow them on social media. Listen to the new album, Rewind. West End Blend is an act you don't want to miss!
