River Rhythms: Tweed Funk

900 N. Plankinton Ave., Milwaukee, WI, 53202
The 2013 WAMI nominations were kind to Tweed Funk. The punchy Milwaukee boogie-blues band was recognized in four categories and took home awards for Male Vocalist (for Joseph “Smokey” Holman) and Brass/Reeds Player (for Kevin Klemme). A protégé of Curtis Mayfield in the early ’70s, Holman is at the heart of the band’s sound, and his voice has lost none of its character with age—if anything, it has only grown smoother. Last year the group celebrated the release of their latest album, First Name Lucky.
