We told you it was going to be a good one…. On Sunday, June 26th, the funk converged at palate food + wine in Los Angeles. Palate’s chefs smoked up some Arkansas-style BBQ; their sommelier explained the subtle differences between the different 40 ounces on their tasting menu; Cut Chemist, J.Rocc, Breakestra’s Miles and Egon’s played the True Soul hits; Lee Anthony – straight off the plane from Little Rock – held court with those fans enthralled by his forty year stint with one of America’s best-kept-secrets of a soul label.
If you were there, you had ‘cue stained hands and bunch of Wonderbread in your gut to prove it. If you weren’t – well, don’t miss our next throw down.
