Average White Band

Celebrate at The Dakota with a New Year’s Eve party for the ages!

AWB are widely regarded as one of the best soul and funk bands in music. Though perhaps best known for their timeless instrumental mega-hit ‘Pick Up the Pieces,’ the band’s strength actually lay in their consistently accomplished songwriting, stretching across several gold selling albums and multi-Grammy nominations. Somewhat incongruously, given their Scottish roots, the six piece took the influences of their R&B heroes – people like Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Donny Hathaway and others – and developed their own ‘authentic’ sound which was eagerly adopted by audiences in the US and elsewhere.

The current line-up of the band – this time with noted US recruits augmenting founding members Alan Gorrie and Onnie McIntyre – continues to record and tour around the world to ongoing critical and audience acclaim. All this and more is perfectly illustrated in the band’s latest release, Soul And The City, which showcases the breadth and depth of the band’s material, all captured within the excitement of a 2006 live performance.
