Last night I caught the Brand New Heavies at the Highline Ballroom. It was a great show. I’m not very familiar with BNH, but I’ve heard good things about them. Tammi wasn’t interested – she says all their songs sound alike, I don’t entirely disagree. I still don’t really know one song from the other, with one or two exceptions, but for the most part I like their sound.
Regardless, they know how to amp up a crowd. The music swayed from Funk to Soul to Disco rocking the ballroom with it. I went with Will, who has now seen them play 3 times. One of the highlights for me was when they played “I Don’t Know Why I Love You.” N’Dea sang it in that Micheal Jackson style, yelling and pleading the whole way through. It was great.
