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.
