Unwrap your presents. Then head to Deep South for the Very Funky Christmas Show, one of the few gigs on this holiday. "A lot of the local players know each other and work on the same tribute and cover circuits, but never actually get to play shows with each other," explains Deep South's John Booker. So organizer Steve Baker of Bull City Syndicate has created an evening of fellowship for cover and tribute bands. If you're wondering what's so funky about Christmas, well that would be the jams—' 70s and' 80s soul and R&B.
