Average White Band
Average White Band are widely regarded as one of the best soul and funk bands in the history of music. Though perhaps best known for their timeless instrumental mega-hit ‘Pick Up the Pieces’ the band’s strength lay in their consistently accomplished songwriting, stretching across several gold selling albums and multi-Grammy nominations for the legendary Atlantic Records. Somewhat incongruously, given their Scottish roots, the six pieces took the influences of their R&B heroes – people like Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Donny Hathaway, and others – and developed their own ‘authentic’ sound which was eagerly adopted by audiences around the world.
