    Summary

    Boston funk and soul revival band The Chicken Slacks have established themselves as a fixture in local funk lore as the band that succeeded the legendary Little Joe Cook in the Thursday residency spot at the historic Cambridge, MA nightclub, The Cantab. With their sound firmly rooted in the Stax and Memphis sound, the seven-piece group's influences range from funk (Eddie Bo) to boogie rock (Creedence, Beefheart), reflected here in the selection of cover tunes, interspersed with originals. Their Cantab residence is jammed every week, the unpretentious, sweaty crowd of regulars filling the dance floor, the band providing the grooves, funk & soul that keep them coming back.

    Named after a misheard Sam Cooke lyric from "Twistin' the Night Away" ("he's dancing with the chick in slacks"), they are championed by Boston DJ Brother Wayne, notorious in funk 45 circles as having more than his share of "holy grail" sides in his possession at any given time, and who hears that something in these guys' live sets that sets him off.
