The Show: Satchel Grande with Mariachi Zapata at 9 p.m. Friday at The Waiting Room Lounge, 6212 Maple St. Tickets, $7 at the door.
About Satchel Grande: Satchel Grande sings that “the world is as funky as you make it.” That tells us that the world must be pretty dang funky for the members of the band. Chris Klemmensen wanted to bring the funk so bad that he started the group as a one-man operation until he could recruit more members. These days, Grande performs with up to 11 musicians — keyboards, percussion, guitars and lots of horns — who combine to form the ultimate party band.
