Phil Motion + Marlow Beat Kings @ Elmdale (Ott.) Jan. 7


Recommended Posts


Saturday, January 7

You wouldn’t always know it (due to their in-demand status elsewhere), but Ottawa has some really great groove and soul bands, and it’s a pleasant surprise that two of them are playing the same bill tonight. Phil Motion & The Easy Lo-Fi link up with The Marlow Beat Kings @ Elmdale Tavern (9:30 p.m., $10) to melt the ice off your heart and warm the souls of your feet.

Let me add to the temptation. I think The Marlow Beat Kings are the opener; here's their set list from the Dec. 29 show they did at the Mercury:

Green Onions (Booker T And The MGs)

House Of The Rising Sun (The Animals)

Skanking Easy (Augustus Pablo)

Time Of The Season (The Zombies)

Apache (The Shadows)

What's Going On (Marvin Gaye)

Freak Out

Cissy Strut (The Meters)

Light My Fire (The Doors)

Sunny (Bobby Hebb)

Yekermo Sew (Mulatu Astatke)

Paint It Black (The Rolling Stones)


Oye Como Va (Tito Puente)

Vera Cruz (Milton Nascimento)

Sensual Seduction (Snoop Dogg)

The band line-up is organ/bass/drums, all instrumental.

And here's a Phil Motion video I found:
