Friday To-Do: The Revelations feat. 'Tre Williams

THE REVELATIONS FEATURING 'TRE WILLIAMS
10 p.m., Juanita's, $12 adv., $15 d.o.s.

This should be a rare treat. It's not so often that Little Rock gets a full-blown soul-jazz band. That alone warrants a bit of consideration for this show. If the Revelations sound as tight live as they do on the record, which was arranged beautifully by Eddie Kendrick's cohort, Patrick Adams, this show could well be a gig for the books. Williams and the Revelations fill a much-needed vacancy in today's neo-soul field; that is, they operate a super masculine, Kenny Lattimore-type of sound, complete with those time-tested, play-by-play "good guy in a moral and/or sexual quandary struggling to reconcile his own primal desires with his moral standards" lyrics, a la R. Kelly or a libidinal, urban Tolkien. Expect the ladies to be out for Nas collaborator 'Tre Williams and his "testosterone engorged baritone" (soultracks.com's words, not mine). The concert's open to ages 18 and older.
