Yeah, Probably has been successfully filling Mobile’s need for original soul and funk. The band’s buttery grooves have made it a favorite at many local venues. Whether performing original material or familiar favorites, the band’s music makes repeat customers of people new to its sound. In addition to live shows, Yeah, Probably’s local acceptance got a strong boost through its domination of the Lagniappe New Southern Music Showcase at SouthSounds 2017.
The band is taking the next step with the release of its debut EP and using Nappie Award-winning venue the Bluegill as the launching point. The first 125 people through the door will receive a free copy of the EP.
Yeah, Probably is using the EP’s initial single, “Wasted Time,” as a preview. Just seconds into this track, the band sets the tone with an eclectic mix of harmonies cushioned by clean guitar and drums. As the chorus drops, a sweet ribbon of saxophone and electric keys slides into the mix and takes this track into new sonic dimensions. The single’s excellent production and thoughtful arrangements are an excellent harbinger of great things to come from this release.
Anyone wanting to get a jump on Yeah, Probably’s new material can also catch them at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Biloxi on July 21 and the Flora-Bama in Orange Beach on July 22.
