first_imgLoad remaining images British funk-rock quartet The New Mastersounds were back at Brooklyn Bowl for a relaxed, but groovy afternoon performance at the New York City venue on Saturday. The band’s weekend stint at the Brooklyn concert venue/bowling alley acted as the final dates on their spring run of North American shows in celebration of their 20th anniversary this year. After getting their New York fans warmed up with a show at “The Bowl” on Friday night, the band was back in action early with a 2 p.m. performance in front of mostly young families as the group eased a mix of adults and kids into what was a perfect spring afternoon in the city on Saturday.Related: The New Mastersounds Announce Three-Night Colorado Run With Ghost-NoteThe 90-minute afternoon set didn’t quite have the musical ferocity for which the band can be known to reach at times. The show was still just as entertaining and full of surprises however as guitarist Eddie Roberts, drummer Simon Allen, bassist Pete Shand, and pianist Joe Tatton treated fans to sit-ins from horn players in addition to singer and recent collaborator, Lamar Williams Jr. Williams, son of former Allman Brothers Band bassist Lamar Williams, joined the band towards the latter end of their afternoon set, where he added some smooth vocals to the mostly-instrumental group in performing the recently-released “Let’s Go Back” and “Trouble”. The addition to Williams added some extra energy as they charged towards the end of their set, which had already been filed with a mix of fantastic back-and-forth lead work from all four members.Scroll down to check out the gallery of photos from Saturday’s afternoon performance below, courtesy of Tom Coyote.The band will continue their 2019 campaign with a brief run of shows in California, Virginia, and Pennsylvania throughout the first half of July.
