“Baby Love,” “Mickey’s Monkey,” “Give You All The Love (Inside Of Me),” “Piece Of The Rock” — if those songs ring a bell, then you know your Mother’s Finest. The Atlanta band, which combined funk, rock and soul into an intense style, is coming to Schooners on May 3. Roanoke band PolyChrome will open the show.
Maybe the coolest thing about this show is that most of the original members of this Georgia Music Hall of Fame act will be onstage. Singers (and husband/wife team) Joyce “Baby Jean” Kennedy and Glenn Murdock, bassist Wyzard and guitarist Moses Mo will all be aboard. Drummer Dion Murdock, who has been in Fishbone and was in Macy Gray’s band, is Kennedy and Murdock’s son.
