R & B/SOUL | Mitty & The Followers 

Someone told me recently that if you live in Rochester, and you've never heard of Mitty & The Followers, then you just haven't been paying attention. Believe me, I am all ears. Eric "Mitty" Moore—a.k.a the Ambassador of Soul—leads this powerful, energetic R & B outfit with solid, sophisticated bass lines and a staggering vocal range. Stevie Lyons adds the right amount of spice with his edgy, Southern-rockish guitar work, while Sammy "G" controls the keys with a sound dripping with blues and gospel influences. Rounding out the mix is drummer Paul Mastriani whose unassuming but steady rhythmic approach is the perfect foundation for this funky and soulful reimagining of your Mama's Motown.

Mitty & The Followers perform Thursday, February 14, 8 p.m. at Sticky Lips BBQ Juke Joint, 830 Jefferson Road. $5. 292-5544, stickylipsbbq.com.
