Lee Fields & the Expressions

When: Thu., Feb. 23, 8:30 p.m. 2017

Soul and funk powerhouse Lee Fields is sometimes referred to as “Little JB.” The nickname stems from the singer’s similarities to the late James Brown, who was a contemporary and influence of Fields’ in the late 1960s and early ’70s. After a career lull, Fields caught a second wind in the ’90s when retro funk records became a collector and DJ craze. In the mid-2000s, Fields teamed up with Truth & Soul Records’ house band, the Expressions. The band’s blaring horns, shuffling drums and Fields’ husky yowl re-create the classic era so well, you’d think you had time-traveled into yesteryear. Lee Fields & the Expressions perform on Thursday, February 23, at ArtsRiot in Burlington.

Price: $18/22
