Allensworth, tonight, Byron Brewery; Sunday, Beach Hotel
California’s own award-winning rock and soul entity Allensworth hit Byron this weekend with two shows featuring as part of their mammoth East Coast Australia tour.
The band recently took out Orange County’s best live band and had the privilege of opening for funk pioneers Herbie Hancock, Maceo Parker and James Brown.
Bearded and bushy frontman Jamie Allensworth describes their music – ‘We call it SoCal Feelgood Music. It’s kinda like a cross between Sly and the Family Stone and Beck. We lay heavy on the soul tip and you can definitely feel the southern Cali influence.’
Friday at the Byron Brewery 8pm and Sunday at the Beach Hotel from 4pm.
