"RED DRESS" is the debut album from Benny C and The Associates; it is full of funk and soul with a contemporary feel that excludes no-one.
Conjure up images of either Trafalgar Square or Times Square in your mind, speed the sequence up, get the traffic and people really moving and then play Ladies and Gentlemen (the opening track) to this; see, it works! The ideal track for such a scene, being fun, funky, furious and full on.
There's some 'serious' harp playing going on in 'Serious Joe' and a backing that is pure Rhythm and Blues; this propels the album onwards and upwards.
If you're in the mood for some slow, meaningful bluesy soul with harmonies galore carefully placed in the background and a lead guitar that is gently roaring to be set free, then 1000 ways is your track.
If you can't venture to Adelaide to see this band, purchase their album and let the funk be with you.
