TGIF July 24: Lowrider Band

by The Editors on July 21, 2009


All our friends know the lowrider and it would be silly to think that we would miss out on the band formerly known as War when The Lowrider Band playing at Poinsettia Park this Friday night at 6 PM as part of the TGIF Jazz In The Park.

After losing the rights to the name War years ago in a court battle, Harold Brown, B.B. Dickerson, Lee Oskar and Howard Scott from the landmark ’70s soul-rock band now play their music together as the Lowrider Band, a reference to one of their biggest hits and a song that earned them lifelong respect in Latino car culture. The group’s signature funk-rock sound – a steamy Afro-Latin R&B groove, always with a social message grounded by their distinctively breezy Southern California vibe – propelled a series of ’70s hits, including “Slippin’ Into the Darkness,” “All Day Music,” “The World Is a Ghetto,” “The Cisco Kid,” “Why Can’t We Be Friends?” and “Low Rider.” Today the funky jam band is on a mission to stake their rightful claim as the indisputable authorities of their top hits.

Great after linking this post all up we can’t get that song out of our heads. . . low ride er, goes a little slower. . .
