ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"The Show" includes a CD and DVD (2-discs) that display Garrick Davis and his Fabulous FunkyBand in potent form on stage in February of 2005. Davis' masterful performance on acoustic and electric guitars, powerful vocals and infectious joy help to create a dynamic, heartfelt musical experience backed by his formidable 5-piece band.

The 11-track CD builds from the opening solo acoustic improvisational "FunkyDoodle" with the intuitive guitarist sliding into a unique cover of Jimi Hendrix' "Voodoo Child(Slight Return)" played to a rabid anticipating sold out audience. Having established his ground, Garrick brings on his band complete with richly textured Hammond B3, a strong female supporting vocalist, a free wheeling alto sax and an inventive liquid rhythm section.

"The Show" contains a wonderful array of musical styles. The first half of the audio CD disc is acoustic-based full band funky folk evolving into an electric juggernaut beginning with the elegant instrumental "G.D.'s Blues" then effortlessly flowing into the funk/blues of "The Saints" (complete with a colossal guitar/sax "showdown") , the gospel tinged and dynamic "Trust" and the 10 minute long Bo Diddley beat infused funk-laden drama of "Big Imagination" with it's absolutely burning guitar and organ explorations. The album ends with the beautiful bonus track "Shrinking Man" that was recorded solo on acoustic guitar in the living room of a friend. The listener is likely to be drawn in to imagine being in that same living room!

A 35-minute DVD contains 4 songs and artist/fan interviews to bring a clear visual perspective to the musical and personal world of Davis and his Fabulous FunkyBand. There is no freak show. Garrick is a man succeeding in sharing his gifts with his worldwide audience on his own terms.

Davis' triumphant production possesses the key ingredients of a successful recipe for a brilliant end product. Those ingredients are great songs, outstanding musicians, exceptional performing skills, sparkling audio and video work cemented with a consistently positive message which is, ultimately, the engine of Davis' own personal drive and self-belief. Leaving no stone unturned, the cover art is a classy display of lyrics and photos, which turns over into a colorful Fabulous FunkyBand poster!

Garrick Davis' original Blues/Funk/Folk material combines virtuosic instrumental freedom with mature lyrical themes that address facing life's challenges with clarity and resolve. It is through his music that Davis inspires his audience to thrive and celebrate life, in spite of its ups and downs, while still realizing there are no guarantees.

Off-the-chart cool
I discovered Garrick entirely by accident, and I'm glad I did. This CD/DVD is WAY COOL... the Jimi cover will knock your socks off. GD's Blues is awesome. And I love Big Imagination. My only regret is that Chemical Reaction is not included! On the DVD, Garrick seems likeable and real... the sort of guy you'd love to talk to over a cold one. Well done, Garrick. Please make more!

Your music is great! So happy to see that you made it to your destination....San Mateo High School lawn area I'm sure seems like a long time ago....

Eclectic bliss
This cd/dvd is enjoyable, endearing, and awakening. You will learn how it all came to be, the inspiration and motivation that set it all into motion.
The beginning of Garrick's music history is as interesting as his lyrics. It all seemed so personal which made it all the more enjoyable and proud that this artist has accomplished what he has.
Buy the cd, play it in the car and drive down the coast...it's definitely something to cruise to!
I look forward to the next release.
