The Cosbys!The Cosbys are Auckland’s undisputed kings of Northern Soul — a hypercharged R&B revue thundering through uptown, downtown, deep soul, dance and ballad sounds, and most importantly, doing it with impeccable style.

Apparently dissatisfied with the grooveless, undersexed state of modern rock’n’roll, The Cosbys found the answer by smashing together four-on-the-floor Motown rhythms with a two-fisted Stax-style horn section and a singer — “Papa” Crawdaddy — who is so damn good he made James Brown just give up and die.

So cut loose, ladies and gentlemen — shake those hips, jive with the Hot Cosby Horns, be touched by “Papa”. Do the jerk, watch them work, do the Mashed Potato, do the Alligator. And do it on Cosby Street, or even better – tonight (Friday 18th April) at Mighty Mighty.

10pm – $5 – good times
