Wheedle’s Groove takes you straight into Seattle’s blossoming funk and soul scene of the late ’60s and early ’70s. At the time, there were over 20 live music clubs specializing in funk and soul and even more bands with big afros and crazy spacesuits, releasing 45 after 45. Most of these releases are still sought after by cratediggers today. Before teaming up on Wheedle's Groove, Robert Nesbitt spent his early days as a disc jockey at KYAC while Tony Gable played in the funk band Cold, Bold & Together. In this talk at the 2005 Red Bull Music Academy in Seattle, Nesbitt and Gable talk first hand about the great soul era of Seattle.
