The 4 Soul Band featuring Otis Logan on drums has been one of Memphis’ premiere neb-soul and funk bands for the last several years, but now has a new look since the departure of bassist Lloyd Anderson to the cruise ship circuit. On Monday, May 4, they were the headlining act for the biweekly Memphis Music Monday sponsored by the Memphis Music Commission. They performed several instrumentals, and backed up guest vocalist Randy D on a Usher cover as well. Horn work was provided by ubiquitous Memphis musician Suavo J. It was also my first time checking out the new Hard Rock Cafe, located in the former Elvis Presley’s building just outside the Beale Street district. While the stage is somewhat smaller, the upstairs is bigger, and the outdoor second story deck is a very pleasant oasis in downtown Memphis.
