Up-and-coming L.A. funk trio Organ Freeman continues to make moves, as the band keeps things funky and will soon appear at Brooklyn Comes Alive. Today, the band has been announced as support for TAUK, playing a hometown show at The Roxy in Hollywood, CA. These two instrumental fusion groups are guaranteed to throw it down when they get together on November 4th.With a new album out in just a couple weeks, TAUK’s uniquely instrumental brand of progressive funk fusion had earned them a great reputation. Their live shows are downright infectious, and the energy of new music is sure to translate into great playing! When you combine that energy with the all-out funk jamming of Organ Freeman, it’s a sure fire recipe for success.You can’t help but grin when you hear that a band is named Organ Freeman. That grin turns into an all-out smile when you listen to their music, a soulful-yet-peppy blend of instrumental jazz fusion that takes no prisoners. It’s some serious toe-tapping jives, fueled by the trio hard at work: guitarist Erik Carlson, drummer Rob Humphreys and organist Trevor Steer.Check out all of the information about the show in the artwork below, and get tickets here.
The 10-year-old mare was last seen finishing down the field in the Kim Muir Chase at the Cheltenham Festival, so it was no surprise to see her sent off at big odds for this fiercely competitive contest. However, Liberty Counsel was in front rounding the home turn and fought off the challenge Away We Go to record a famous victory for her small-time connections. Liberty Counsel ran out a shock 50-1 winner of the Ladbrokes Irish Grand National at Fairyhouse for trainer Dot Love and conditional jockey Ben Dalton. Press Association Home Farm (10-1) and Sweeney Tunes (12-1) rounded off the placings in third and fourth respectively, while the surprise result means Away We Go’s handler Willie Mullins is still searching for a first Irish Grand National win. Denmark-born Love is known for pre-training some of the Gigginstown-owned horses and is the first female to train the Irish Grand National winner since Jenny Pitman, who struck with Mudahim in 1997. Love said: “I’m over the moon. She deserved it. The ground didn’t suit at Cheltenham, but she really tried there. She’s a super mare and a very good jumper. “Ben gave her a super ride. With a low weight and very good ground we were confident. I would have been happy if she had been fourth.” Part-owner Irene Neale said: “I’m on top of the world. It’s the best day of my life apart from my daughter being born in 1986! She’s a gutsy little mare and nearly died three times with ailments.”
