Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band are back with another pitch-perfect cover of a Jackson 5 classic (audio)
If there’s any band out there capable of making a covering a classic track like “Great To Be Here” by the Jackson 5, it’s Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band. And as expected, they knocked it completely out of the park on this one. Hard, chunky drums (complete with a long drum break, natch), tons of funky percussion, bass, guitar, all with the band’s signature use of steel drums taking the lead. It’s exactly what I expect to hear from a Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band cover and I wouldn’t want it any other way.
Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band’s new album, The Serpent’s Mouth is out now on Big Crown Records.
