For those who don’t know who G. Love and Special Sauce are, you might think they’re either a funky dish or something a little kinky. Don’t get us wrong, they are truly funky and extremely kinky, but only because this alternative hip-hop band from the town of brotherly love is known for their laid-back blues sound.
The quartet, consisting of Garrett Dutton, a.k.a G. Love, Jeffrey Clemens on drums, Mark Boyce on keyboards and Tim Shanko on bass, returns to the Newport Music Hall on August 13th with promises of music that will totally rock your world.
Touring in support of their 2008 album, Superhero Brother, the band is now minus bassist Jimi “Jazz” Prescot, who left the band in January. Regardless, the group still remains strong in sound and in beat. In addition to this tour, G. Love will spend a few late summer nights on the road with Jason Mraz.
