Medicine Stick

Last Night I had the pleasure to check out Muzz Skillings new band, Medicine Stick, at the Highline Ballroom. Skillings was Living Colour's founding bass player and it is good to see that he hasn't lost either his skill for taste for hard rock. Medicine Stick hearkens back to the height of the funk rock phenomenon. Which could be a bad thing if they imbue their music with a sense of spirituality and a positive attitude. The ace musicianship helps too. The set was about 45 minutes and the band never lost it's groove. Check them out if they come to your town - Brad Filicky
