The Bo-Keys/Charles Walker & the Dynamites

6 p.m. Friday, November 5. Off Broadway, 3509 Lemp Avenue.

The Beat 'n' Soul Showcase kicks off with the one-two headlining punch of the Dynamites (featuring Charles Walker) and the Bo-Keys. The latter is a Memphis supergroup formed in the late '90s by bassist and producer Scott Bomar; it features legendary session men Charles "Skip" Pitts (Isaac Hayes), Ben Cauley (Bar-Kays), Archie "Hubie" Turner (Hi Rhythm Section) and George Sluppick (JJ Grey and Mofro). Indebted to essential instrumental combos such as the Mar-Keys and latter-day funk groups such as the Budos Band, the Bo-Keys has been featured on the soundtracks for Hustle & Flow and Soul Men. It has backed legends such as William Bell and has released one studio album to date, The Royal Sessions. As greasy, bump-and-grind workouts go, the album is so expertly nasty it should be wrapped in brown paper and sold only at adult chitlin' joints.
