Description

Due to the proliferation of personal video game consoles in the '80s and '90s, many tinny 8-, 16- and 64-bit melodies from classic games are lodged deep into the cultural subconscious of the millennial generation. The Super Soul Bros. base their jazz-funk fusion on these looping riffs, taking them far beyond their crudely rendered original locales. Local keyboardist Robbie Benson and accomplished guitarist Brian Sheu co-lead the band through boisterous instrumentals that will chew on a theme like "Chemical Plant Zone" from Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for 10-plus minutes, giving space for warbly organ, peppy sax and blistering electric guitar.
