“Duke’ish was inspired by the earlier works of George Duke. I felt the loss when he passed and remembered an interview in which he said funk was always meant to be humorous.” – J Sharp, keys and organ
The Mike Holderbeast-video finds the band jamming on stage with The Madonnas at the legendary Blue Nile venue in New Orleans, which serves as the band’s public laboratory of funk. There, they performed “Duke’ish” and other songs from their “Say Yeah!! – Live at the Blue Nile” album.
“We recorded ‘Say Yeah!!…’ on August 19, 2017. For many reasons, Blue Nile serves as our public laboratory of funk. We recorded this album on the only week we were off this summer. Basically, the only week that we could have spent away from each other, we decided to record.” – Lou Hill, drums
