Seattle Central staff member and storied musician Robbie Hill will take the stage of the Mural Amphitheatre Saturday night with fellow Seattle funk veterans Wheedle’s Groove to close what promises to be the four-day festival’s biggest day. It will be his first performance since the release his album Gotta Get Back: The Unreleased L.A. Sessions.
Wheedle’s Groove, of which Robbie is a founding member, is slotted to play many other prominent Northwest music festivals this summer. The group is composed of many influential local musicians from Seattle’s past funk scene, and is the result of a resurgance in popularity for what is often lauded as the most under-recognized and under-appreciated period in Seattle’s musical history.
Be sure to catch Robbie Hill and the rest of Wheedle’s Groove Saturday May 26, at 9:20 pm at the Mural Amphitheatre of the Northwest Folklife Festival at the Seattle Center.
