8:00pm - 1:00am
Every now and then a music group comes along that defies definition, category and convention; a group that has that certain something. The X-Factor. Armed with a vast amount of talent and experience, X-Factor signals the return of the era of great bands. With an eclectic repertoire of songs from some of the greatest artists of our time, X-Factor puts a refreshing spin on classic R&B, funk and rock. Drawing from these influences to create their own sound, the band has put together original songs that showcase their background and experience without sounding like every other wannabe pop cliché.
Anchored by leader of the Soul Formula Band that headlined the major venues of the DC-metro area during the ‘80s, X-Factor is fronted by two vocalists that complement each other harmonically, and is backed by a grinding four-piece rhythm section. Driven by the rock-solid pulse of Anthony B. Rucker on bass, David "Eckie" Mullins on drums, Auturo Evans on keyboards and Don Theo on guitar, the group produce a wall of sound that is much bigger than their numbers.
On the front line, On the front line is Natalie Redd, who captivates the audience with her strong vocals. Her sexy ballads and strong persona take you on a romantic, funk filled journey while the funky dance tunes dare you to stand still. During a recent engagement, toe-tapping audience members soon found themselves neck- peckin’ to the infectious grooves that had them up out of their seats.
