The New Review, Black Alley with Waiting On Mongo and The Big Happy
The New Review brings a raw and powerful energy to their focused style of old-school funk & soul music, with a modern originality. With nods to Sharon Jones, vintage Aretha, and the Philadelphia-era David Bowie, The New Review starts a party anywhere they play, horns raised, amps and mics blazing.
Birthed in Southeast DC, Black Alley is known for pushing the art of music to its rhythmic limits. Determined to create a unique musical elixir, Black Alley takes the finest ingredients of hip-hop, soul, and rock to create their own genre-bending sound called #HoodRock. Each band member surrenders to the union of sounds, making each musician essential to the workability and funkability of the collective, known as Black Alley.
