Conception Street is getting more active with each passing month. Truman’s Diner, Old Familiar Tattoo, Sway Downtown and Alabama Music Box have popped up in the last year or so.
Now, Conception Street welcomed home a venue that seemed lost. The Merry Widow is back. This music venue has already started pulling more musical entertainment to Downtown Mobile with more on the way. Funk You’s performance at The Merry Widow will be a good opportunity to get reacquainted with this locale.
Funk You is bringing choice grooves from Augusta, Ga. The band’s Merry Widow crowd can expect an electrifying lineup bringing “dance-driven grooves with powerful clean vocals.”
Ultimately, this band’s sound thrives with complex, eclectic arrangements that cradle infectious rhythms, impressive musicianship and smooth vocal work. Funk You’s lineup takes advantage of each measure with waves of funky goodness and sweet Southern soul created by a group that appears to hold respective passion for the music.
