About the show
Playing tracks by
Honey Cone, SANDRA RHODES, Evie Sands, Curtis Mayfield, Allen Toussaint and more.
If you catch The Sand Band live in the future you may hear these sounds drifting from the speakers at the end of the night. Once they've worked their magic, captured and enthralled audience's with their rootsy country and gospel tinged sound, the tunes featured here in this mix along with the deep soul from the likes of Garnet Mimms, Bobby Bland, Timi Yuro etc...will prepare you for your journey home. Relax by the bar or get out onto the dancefloor, wrap your arms round someone you love, then wait for Mr Mayfield to bring the lights up and lead you out into the starry skys - time ladies & gentleman please.
For now though here's a taster. So sit back relax, cry, dance and even crack open a beer.
A Thief in the night who stole your heart
(The Sand Band's debut album 'All Through The Night' arrives 17th Jan 2011 on Vinyl and CD. Pre-order from HMV, Rough Trade, Amazon, Piccadilly and Play.com)
