Back to Soul Funk : Back To Reality

DJ Vicious Lee made Ryan Cross' weekly jazz/funk throwdown an awesome place to be this Quatro De Mayo.

Ryan's roster of mega talented jazz cats never fail to disappoint.
Cedric Anderson put the groove in his pocket and did double-dutch with it. Cedric gets the party going and got everybody to sing along to "Skin Tight".
Dennis Hamm stretched out on the keys and our hero Ryan - of course - tamed the monster standup bass (as usual). He breezed through an extended solo, incorporating parts of "Come Together", "Billy Jean", "Brick House" and "So What" - digging deep into the neck, at times bowing the bee-jezus out of it.

Popp was on hand to slice and dice his guitar and guest bassist- Keith Rouster- burned hard on the left-handed 6 string.

And making the night an event was the aforementioned DJ Vicious Lee - the grandmaster cuttin' on 2 turntables. Dude spins the hottest sets. Check him as he rocks the house every Sunday night at Harvelle's as part of the Toledo Show.

Ryan Cross and co. reconvene next Tuesday with special guests tba.
