Joe Keyes and the Late Bloomer Band

By Common Ground on the Hill (other events)

Saturday, October 8 2016 8:00 PM 10:30 PM EDT

Joe Keyes is equal parts front man, poet and band conductor. The Freehold, NJ, native found his orchestra in late 2009 in The Late Bloomer Band, a concoction of Baltimore-area musicians. The band takes audiences back to the days of Miles Davis and early P-Funk, when big bands were led by strong individuals. The band’s brand of live improvisation and musical sophistication presents a different experience at every show. While Keyes draws inspiration from musical mentors Gil Scott-Heron, Joe Bowie, and Sun Ra, The Late Bloomer Band brings a modern interpretation to funk, jazz, rock and a variety of other genres.

The Late Bloomer Band’s members, in their mid-20s, help keep 54-year-old Keyes young and come from locally established bands. Having grown together musically, the band’s polished tightness has landed collaborations with George Clinton and members of Parliament/Funkadelic.
