Sister Sparrow Major and the MonbacksSeries Show – Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds plus Major & the Monbacks – Fri., May 8, 2015Get ready to get down on the dance floor, as we welcome these two big, horn-backed bands to Martinsville. Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds is a seven-piece powerhouse that puts a modern spin on classic soul. The band is led by Arleigh Kincheloe (Sister Sparrow), whose astoundingly powerful voice and sly demeanor make for a spellbinding presence onstage. She is backed by the mighty force of The Dirty Birds, a flock of seven men who masterfully lay down thundering grooves and soaring melodies. While each of the Birds are capable of lighting up the stage with jaw-dropping displays of musicianship, it’s clear they’re all focused on Season Passesdelivering the band’s infectious music as a single entity. Simply put, the band’s live show is explosive. Major and the Monbacks are the newest torch bearers of the old “Norfolk Sound.” With 4 vocalists, a hype man and a lively horn section, the Monbacks have revived the party infused energy of southern soul, blending this old school style with danceable pop melodies and ska and soul horn riffs, stirring dreamlike visions of Otis Redding or Chuck Berry playing a beer soaked fraternity party. Music starts at 8:30 p.m. Online tickets HERE.
