A great way to celebrate my birthday with good friends. AWB was phenominal. I'd love to see them again at B.B. Kings.

A bunch of white boys from Scotland playing deep house 70’s funk was and is anything but average. The bands self-titled debut topped the American pop charts with the instrumental "Pick Up the Pieces,” which was also later nominated for a Grammy.

“Person To Person”, “Cut the Cake”, “Schoolboy Crush”, “If I Ever Lose This Heaven”, “Cloudy”, “Queen of My Soul”, and “Let’s Go ’Round Again” became some of the band’s most well-known tunes from their mid-late ’70’s heyday.

In the ’90’s, AWB’s timeless grooves have been sampled by some of the biggest names in the hip-hop, rap, and acid jazz worlds, confirming without a doubt the strong impression the band has made on a new generation. Young bands such as Jamiroquai and Brand New Heavies cite AWB as a major influence.
