During the late '60s and early '70s, and decades before Nirvana, Microsoft and Starbucks put Seattle on the map, Seattle's African American neighborhood known as the Central District was buzzing. The soul sounds of groups like Black on White Affair, Cookin' Bag, and Cold Bold & Together filled local airwaves and packed clubs seven nights a week. As many of the bands began breaking out nationally via major record deals, television appearances, and gigs with the likes of Curtis Mayfield and Stevie Wonder, the public demanded Disco and the scene slipped into obscurity. Flash forward 30 years later, local crate digger DJ Mr. Supreme approached local label Light in the Attic with the idea of releasing an album compilation of these obscure Funk releases, and the result was entitled Wheedle's Groove. At the release party, a line of nostalgic 60 year old fans and funk-hungry 20- something's wrapped around the block as the musicians inside (currently working as graphic designers, janitors, and truck drivers), reflected on music dreams derailed, and prepared to perform together for the first time in 30 years their performance sizzles.
