The Bo-Keys don't simply replay the Memphis instrumental tradition -- they deliver a hard-hitting, authentic take on the city’s original soul-stew sound. Bassist Scott Bomar, a fan of Stax instrumental groups, formed The Bo-Keys as an homage to the quintessential Memphis sound -- yet he has both feet firmly planted in the 21st century.

An all-star section of legendary Stax sidemen -- Ronnie Williams (The Bar-Kays, David Porter) on the Hammond B-3 organ, drummer Willie Hall (The Bar-Kays, the Blues Brothers), and Charles "Skip" Pitts (Isaac Hayes) on wah-wah guitar -- joins Bomar (Impala) to lay down deep funk grooves for a mighty horn section consisting of Memphis' finest young players.

Their new album, "The Royal Sessions", has received rave reviews nation-wide. Steeped in the Memphis tradition, it's also the sound of Memphis now -- familiar, fresh, and undeniably funky.

"Breathes new life into classic sounds ... a Memphis tour-de-force." -- Meredith Ochs, NPR’s All Songs Considered

"A band steeped in tradition but with a thoroughly updated sound ... a bubbling stew of Southern-fried soul." -- Steve Jones, USA Today

"This is funky, greasy, gritty soul, rooted in tradition but timeless in its heat-seeking groove stealth” -- Thom Jurek, All Music Guide

"Memphis soul legends in the making." -- Memphis Flyer
