Personal favorite, funk-jazz trio, Otis Grove, will be playing the Regatta Bar (in the Charles Hotel. Harvard Sq.) on 1.21 next week. They just let word out about a new album coming soon, The Runk. Their last album, Crank it Up is a delicious funk compilation (see rock-u-mentry of Crank it Up CD release above). Otis Grove will be playing the early show at 7:30pm Thursday the 21st. Tickets are $10, which is a really sweet deal, the Regatta Bar is a more elegant venue. You can go skating outside on that cute little pond they made and then go in and warm yourself up with the juiciest funk Boston has to offer.
