The Average White Band  - The 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 actually 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-piece 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 black audiences in the U.S. and elsewhere. The current lineup of the band, with noted U.S. musicians alongside founding members, Alan Gorrie and Onnie McIntyre, continues to delight audiences and critics alike in its wide-ranging touring. The musical energy and trademark sound are remarkably true to the original, and with constant revisitations and re-workings of Average White Band's, and others' classics in the mix, it is no surprise that the Average White Band is now a multi-generational attraction, and a perennial fixture with so many of the top music venues.
