Natchez Trac­ers, Down­right per­form at Clyde’s on Main

Chattanooga Times Free Press - ChattanoogaNow - - MUSIC -

Cos­mic South­ern funk de­scribes the sound of Natchez Trac­ers, a trio of three Nashville friends and an Illi­nois trans­plant.

Formed in 2014, Natchez Trac­ers con­sists of Nashville na­tives Chris Long, drums, vo­cals; Lewis Stubbs Jr., guitars, vo­cals; and Josh Wo­mack, guitars, vo­cals; along with Brad Clark, bass and vo­cals, from Peo­ria, Ill.

They’ll be per­form­ing at Clyde’s on Main on Fri­day, May 26, at 10 p.m.

Their set will in­clude mu­sic from their de­but al­bum, “Ze­roes and Ones.” It cap­tures key el­e­ments of the Trac­ers’ sound with ex­pan­sive and emo­tion-filled genre-bend­ing tracks.

Its six songs all stand alone as con­cep­tual vi­gnettes, but the record­ing project was con­ceived as an al­bum of songs that the­mat­i­cally in­ter­twine. The guys are fans of this classic ap­proach to mu­sic-mak­ing and wanted to harken back to an era in which col­lec­tive bod­ies of musical work mat­tered and made a dif­fer­ence.

Funk band Down­right takes the stage at Clyde’s on Satur­day, May 27, at 10 p.m.

This Birm­ing­ham, Ala.- based band in­cludes Matthew DeVine, Jay Frederick and Steve Lewis. They play funk, new wave and syn­throck mu­sic.
