Detroit Funk Band Will Sessions Pay Tribute To Motor City On “Last Fridays”

"Will Sessions presents “Last Fridays”, a digital collection of material previously released on the Funk Night Records imprint between 2010-2013. The title is a homage to Detroit’s now-legendary Motor City Funk Night party, where Will Sessions was featured as house band and label boss Frank Raines spun extremely rare funk sides to abandoned warehouses full of as many as 4000 sweaty bodies.

Prior to now, these songs have never been available except as extremely limited 45 rpm vinyl, with some fetching modest sums on the funk record market. Represented also are a variety of solo projects from the fold - from the lush cinematic soundtrack vibes of Marcello De Luca (Sam Beaubien), the crime inspired funk of T-Bottoms (the song was actually inspired by Will Sessions bassist Tim Shellabarger being mugged), to the laid back guitar stylings of Picky G (Ryan Gimpert). Included as well are the percussion-heavy breakbeats of Volcano Kpache (Bryan Arnold, Eric Kacir), and a cover of Pearl Dowell’s classic side “Good Things”, handled here with ease by Detroit soul belter, Coko.

The release is intended to sum up what the band has been up to in years prior, but also be a teaser of what lies ahead – a full length funk album of more original material, the next live video/album installment in their Mixtakes series and much more…" - Will Sessions
