The New Mastersounds returning to
Old Rock House on Tuesday, October 20

The British funk/jazz quartet The New Mastersounds will return to St. Louis to perform on Tuesday, October 20 at the Old Rock House.

The group (pictured) will be touring in support of a new album, Made For Pleasure, that's set for release on Friday, October 2.

According to the press release, "The New Mastersounds core four—guitarist Eddie Roberts, drummer Simon Allen, bassist Pete Shand and organist Joe Tatton—are joined on the 11-track effort by guests including soul chanteuse Charly Lowry, revered percussionist/vibraphonist Mike Dillon and the North Cali-based West Coast Horns, featuring tenor saxophonist Joe Cohen and trumpeter Mike Olmos." You can hear the title track from the album here.

Drawing inspiration from the Meters, Booker T and the MGs, and 1970s funk, the New Mastersounds have been playing clubs and festivals on the jam-band circuit here in the US for several years, but this will be just their second St. Louis gig ever after making their debut here last June, also at the ORH.

Tickets for the all-ages show will be $20 in advance, $23 day of show, and will go on sale at 9:00 a.m. this Friday, August 7.
