Natchez Tracers, Downright perform at Clyde’s on Main
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.
