Casey’s DJ Pick of the Week is “Knockin'” by The Aquaducks! These Nashville natives are a seven-piece soul/funk band bringing a fresh take on a beloved genre. Members include Cavanaugh Mims, Zach Sheffler, Andrew Fleming, Thomas Baxter, Aaron Veneziano, Brian Cornish, and Elijah Hall. Influenced by Stevie Wonder and Earth Wind and Fire, the band certainly knows how to liven a crowd. Performing at festivals such as Bonnaroo, they have shared a bill with artists such as Billy Strings, Anders Osborne, and The California Honey Drops.

Released on April 21, 2023, “Knockin'” is the most recent release from The Aquaducks. Fueled by distorted guitars, horns, and organ style keys, this song embodies funk in its entirety. Lead singer Cavanaugh Mims has an incredibly impressive range and tone that’s raspy yet smooth, hitting all the right notes. Engaging listeners with a funky bassline, hints of rock and roll inspired guitar riffs take “Knockin'” to another level. Vibrant and rich, this is the kind of music that’s good for the soul.

Catch them on tour this summer at The 5 Spot on June 10th!
