    Equal parts frontman, poet, and conductor, Joe Keyes leads his nine-piece Late Bloomer Band through a fresh concoction of funk, R&B, soul, rock, and jazz while drawing on the musical auras of Miles Davis, Gil Scott-Heron, Sun Ra, and early Parliament-Funkadelic. Keyes captivates audiences with his deep, commanding vocals, punctuated by tales of love, family, and addiction from his six decades on earth. The band’s vibe and sound – honed over years of theatrical, improvisational shows – journeys from gentle grooves to tight funk and epic crescendos.
