CBS band Baytown will be playing a string of shows this week during the George Street Festival. The group consists of Matt Cooke (vocals, guitar), Jimmy Lee Wright (bass), Mike Dinn (drums) and Greg Bruce (saxophone) and their style goes hand in hand with the festivities downtown, as the group specializes in a fun blend of rock, funk, soul and other forms of danceable music. But while the lads put on a great live show they’re much more than a dance band as is evident from today’s track. This video was filmed by the incredible Heavy Weather crew and features a more laid back, jazzy side of the Baytown sound while remaining undeniably catchy and groove-oriented.
Baytown released their debut full length album last year. Stand-out tracks include the Stevie Wonder-esque funk of “Ignore”, the reggae-infused “Raining Down” and the bluesy, electric slide stomp of “One Night Time”. Check out a sample of these and other great tracks from Baytown’s album at their Bandcamp page.
