7. Charles Bradley & His Extraordinaires
Part of R&B Festival at MetroTech 2015
From his humble beginnings as a James Brown impersonator to his explosion onto the festival circuit with a knockout performance at South by Southwest, Charles Bradley has woven deep ache into deep grooves. Buoyed by the retro-funk sounds of his Extraordinaires, Bradley pleads, cajoles, and screams through his performances, delivering a wall of sound that is equal parts anguish and love.
