John Hickey Band Live
Since the release of his debut Album, 'Down With The Ship,' John Hickey has firmly established himself as a key player in the funk world. This past year he has been busy touring with The John Hickey Band, George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic, Bernie Worrell and the WOO Warriors, recording the next studio album, as well as recording live gigs. His most recent album, The John Hickey Band Live is a compilation of these recordings and is a snapshot of a constantly developing band. Members of the John Hickey Band have played with a veritable who's who in the Funk world. Keyboardist Gregg Fitz, whose soulful vocals and inspired keyboard playing undoubtedly leaves it's mark on the album, honed his skills with the likes of Bootsy Collins, Sly Stone, Cameo, and countless others. William 'Perk' Puryear (Funkin, The Eddie Hazel Band) holds down the bass. Troy White gives a whole new meaning to the term 'hellified drumming.' And rounding out the group is Cissy Fitz who has played and recorded with Bernie Worrell & the WOO Warriors, Garry Shieder & the Toys. This solid funk foundation provided by the band combined with John's blistering guitar work makes listening to the John Hickey Band a truly electric experience.
