Rocking! Sinkane at Lincoln Hall (October 26, 2017)

Early on they play “How We Be”, which starts off with a fantastic beat. Then, Ahmed Gallab, the lead singer and founder of Sinkane, comes in with his fantastic vocals. “Oo-oo-ooh, we’ve got life right in the pocket.” It’s a great song to put in the set early, as it gets everyone dancing. Also, it has over 3.9 million plays on Spotify.  Soon after is “Favorite Song”, and it’s clear the dance party will continue all night. “Won’t you play my favorite song?” sings everyone in unison along to this very happy song.

Later on they play a tribute to the late Tom Petty, “Mary Jane’s Last Dance”.  They add their own spin to the song to make it sound like one of their own. They have created a unique blend of funk, rock, electronic, and psychedelic rock. For some, the song is only recognized when they sing “Oh hell ya, honey put on that party dress!” It’s a great part of a fantastic night of music by this Brooklyn band that has a bright future ahead of them.
