Looking ahead to what promises to be a night of funk, soul, hip-hop and memories, Huey said, “After almost 4 years, I’m returning to what I’ve loved all my life; playing cool authentic music for cool authentic people.”

Introducing the line-up for his new band, Huey said, “The guys in the band consist of Mateo DiFontaine, who was one of the original members of Fun Lovin Criminals. He’s on keys, turntables and lap steel guitar.

“One of my oldest friends and the godfather to my children who is simply called “King” is a singer in the Tangiers Blues Band, a group I founded in the late 1990s as a side gig with some friends in NYC. He’s on bass guitar and wisecracks.

“The new cats are tremendous additions to the vibe we bring to the live shows. Leon Harrison-James on the trap kit is bringing taste and flavour to my tunes and his energy on the set we’ve been putting together is gonna highlight what a dynamic and stylistic drummer he is.

“On the keys, I looked for someone who had a working knowledge of funk, soul, rock, punk and hip-hop and wasn’t in jail. Adrian Gautrey kept getting recommended to me as a cat who could purr on B3 organ as well as all the other keys that round out the Huey sound.

“Y’all better respecognise.”
