Tweed Funk



"Everything here is first or second take, and the performances impress, whether it is the Otis Redding flavoured funky opener, the rock tinged soul of ‘Hoodoo Power’, the wistful southern soul balladry of ‘Divided’ or the James Brown styled ‘Sugarfoot’, written by soul and blues revivalist Black Joe Lewis. On the blues side, ‘Time To Burn’ is a tough sounding mid tempo number with hints of Magic Sam in J.D. Optekar’s always excellent guitar work .... ‘Sippin Misery’ is a wee wee hours jazz flavoured blues – nice trumpet work from Kevin Klemme" — Norman Darwen, Blues & Rhythm

"Quick with a smile and a joke, Smokey is a natural entertainer who has surrounded himself with some of the best musicians in Wisconsin. With JD Optekar on guitar/vocals, Eric Madunic on bass/vocals, Jon Lovas on saxophone, Kevin Klemme on trumpet and Nick Lang on drums, the band will leave you limp after one of their sweat soaked sessions." — Tim Richards, Blues Blast Magazine

"“First Name Lucky” – (Tweed Tone) – Yes there are still bands that play good old-fashioned Rhythm & Blues and Tweed Funk are among the best. With the honey-voiced Smokey Holman belting out vocals and a sax and trumpet duo augmenting the grooves, Tweed Funk provide a solid set here with the ’60s-flavored soul pop of “Hoodoo Power,” a take on the Eddie Floyd/Steve Cropper chestnut “Knock on Wood” and album highlight, the James Brown-like “Sugarfoot.” Wherever this one goes a party is sure to follow." — Kevin Wierzbicki, Phoenix Examiner
