Things have been crazy in the funky world of Freekbass. On August 19, Freekbass sat in with Umphrey’s McGee in Knoxville TN at the Tennessee Theater. Freekbass took the stage to perform with the band on Prince’s Controversy. https://www.facebook.com/brook.duncan.75/videos/1078345645657575/?t=4 On August 20, Freekbass released the new video of the single Steppin Outta Line which once again features the addition of Sammi Garett on vocals. Sammi is well known from her presence in national funk jammers Turkuaz and released a video and single with Freekbass a few months ago titled Love in your Pocket. This year’s Summer Camp music festival included a performance by the full Freekbass lineup plus Sammi- that seems to portend mutual interests to come. Check out the gallery of photos from the Umphrey’s show here. The video was directed by Angie Wilson and the vibe and costumes are great. The theme seems to be a classic monster movie motif, with Freekbass playing the funky bass playing monster. And the feel of the video has an old school mid 1980s MTv vibe, you know when bands used to make fun music videos and a channel played them? https://youtu.be/YtQasLEamyE?t=4 This week Freekbass is heading out on tour with the Joe Marcinek band, and throughout fall and winter will be continuing to play in his own band, Freekbass- with some shows including Garett on guest vocals. Check him out and check in with your funkier self.
