American jazz-funk legends The Blackbyrds fly in to Edinburgh's Voodoo Rooms for a cool r&b-tinged workout of such underground club classics as "Walking in Rhythm," "Rock Creek Park," and "Happy Music".

The Blackbyrds were formed by Donald Byrd in 1973 from the best music students attending his course in Howard University, DC, following the success of his groundbreaking "Black Byrd" album. The band made a clutch of scrumptious records in the seventies.

"Rock Creek Park" from "City Life" provided a staple break for the Hip Hop producers of the early eighties. Sampled by everyone from Massive Attack to Nas and De La Soul, and appearing on the Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas soundtrack, the band's albums have remained alive for a new generation.

Original Blackbyrds, Drummer Keith Killgo, keyboardist Kevin Toney, bassist Joe Hall, and guitarist Orville Saunders, form the band's current incarnation with Antonio Parker on woodwind and vocalist Juanita Williams.

Doors 8pm. Tickets priced £18 (stbf)are available now from The Voodoo Rooms, Ripping Records, Tickets Scotland, online at and by phone on 0131 220 3234
