A review of Tweed Funk's new album First Name Lucky by Big City Rhythm & Blues Magazine 


"Tweed Funk is a multi-faceted weave of old school Memphis soul, blues and rock, creating a sound you can wrap yourself up in....'First Name Lucky' is classic soul with a modern edge and may be the next thing to make Milwaukee famous."
