Miles Tackett’s The Fool Who Wonders

If you have gone to Funky Sole, LA’s finest weekly raw funky soul party, you have seen Music Man Miles providing killer funk sounds every Saturday at The Echo.  Miles Tackett is also distinguished as a  member of  the funk band Breakestra with his characteristic vocals and guitar skills. For over a decade in the Los Angeles underground funk scene it is no surprise that Miles would come up with a solo production influenced by the many paths of his life.

Last week, the Bootleg Theatre hosted a night for all to witness Tackett’s new material “The Fool Who Wonders” a soulful funk soul production with dashes of psychedelia, just like this night.  Between Miles voice, guitar and visuals accompanied by high caliber musicians, the audience was astound and thoroughly attentive to the performance taking place.  Highlight of the night:  Miles young family member cheering him “you can do this!” (way cute) which was enhanced by the presence of the afrobeat band Mexico68 providing additional dancing vibes. The hours of rehearsal and meticulous production was certainly noticed one song after the other with fresh sounds that will undoubtedly reach different corners of Los Angeles and beyond.

Below, check Miles recently released video of his song “Just What I Need” to get a little taste of The Fool Who Wonders and for even more photos of the night please visit FARAHSTOP, the music photography archive.

I shared more than one time in my social media sites how much I like Valentine’s day.  Is not about the mushy crap, or the religious myths behind it. Is about people, worldwide, focusing their energy in one of the strongest feelings:  Love… And that my friends is powerful.   I couldn’t do anything other than doing what I love, around music I love, with the people I love.

LA had a major concentration of my favorite loving things at it’s still fresh and gorgeous Grand Park who hosted a free night of LOVE  with the support of Nance Arte Productions and The Echo.  Funky Sole is LA’s premiere raw/funk soul party. 1960s – Now sounds adorned Grand Park  where lovers and friends (many single groups of friends) turned to the park to share a night under the stars and get their funk on!  DJs Music Man Miles shared the rare grooviness usually found at The Echo every Saturday night.  The bands Orgone and Breakestra gave amazing performances  under the LA sky while the lines for the beer garden where long, yet tolerable.  Check FARAHSTOP the music photography archive for even more images of how it all went down !!! and if you are still craving a bit of funk, visit Funky Sole.
