Previewing Lubriphonic @ The Double Door, April 1st


On Friday, April 1st; at one of Chicago’s most celebrated mid-sized venues, The Double Door, one of Chicago’s more up-and-coming jam/funk bands, Lubriphonic will be taking the stage before heading off on a dizzying national tour. This band plays a brand of refurbished mo-town funk with contemporary jam-band soul and energy. If you are even vaguely into either of those genres, or just need your live music fix this weekend, then you really should consider heading towards the Double Door and seeing this show endorsed by the reputable Chicago Bluegrass and Blues Festival.

Listen to what an OurVinyl writer felt after seeing them play recently at Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom in Denver; “Lubriphonic’s depth was immediately apparent. Composed of Giles Corey (guitar, vocals), Richard King (drums), Pennal Johnson (bass), Charles Prophet (Saxophone), Norman Palm (trombone) and Andrew Toombs (keyboards) the band engages the audience through funky Rock & Roll, blues, gospel, and R&B all fused together to create a roller coaster of sound. The musicianship and creativity is apparent as each member exemplifies their skill through improvisational breaks. Soon the ample dancing space soon became close quarters and I ended the night in a two by two square. The crowd next door must have felt the vibe. I suggest you do the same.”
