Two different kinds of soul revival bands exist today: those that mimic the sounds of decades passed, and those that create a sound of their own, paying homage to the icons of the genre. Kings Go Forth fall into that latter category.

Nearly a year ago, I saw Kings Go Forth perform at a small venue in San Francisco, and not a whole lot has changed for them since that time. They're still touring for their well-received album, The Outsiders Are Back, but that's not a bad thing. A few new songs have since been added to their show, which could easily be mistaken for forgotten songs from that album.

The band seems to follow the motto "don't fix what isn't broken." It's often the case that a band is constantly searching for their sound, and I find myself at ease when a band is comfortable to elaborate on their existing sound.

As for the show, they're still bringing the same energy displayed at my first experience. The crowd was easily excited by the horn sections and enthusiastic front-man (as well as a record collector, an independent label entrepreneur, and the proprietor of the fabled Lotus Land record shop) Andy Noble. While the music was good as ever, I'll admit that I was slightly disappointed to see that the band's kung-fu outfits from the last show were replaced by white v-necks and white cotton pants. Not since Puff Daddy's ninth annual white party have I seen this much white!
