With only an hour to impress, this band of Adelaide soulsters played a memorable set in an historic venue.
It is clear that The Transatlantics have perfected what they do, producing a strong debut release which combines several genres to make one big pot of fun party jams.
In surely one of the local gigs of the year, Adelaide's most talked about funk and soul outfit the Transatlantics put on a show for the ages in front of an enraptured audience at a sold out Rocket Bar.
There's nothing like a few hours of all genres - with a line of soul through each - to work off those Christmas calories at The Espy.
Three years after the Godfather of Soul took up his residency at the Apollo in the sky Fred Wesley continues to keep that JB sound alive.
Cramming a nine-piece outfit onto a tiny stage is always a challenge, particularly if you are an infectiously up-beat funk group like The Transatlantics.
Imagine a 9 piece soul/funk band circa 1968 bringing it hard, raw and sweatyand you have Australia's most exiting new deep-funk outfit, The Transatlantics.
Adelaide locals bring the funk, flaunt it and make damn sure you won't forget their name!!!
