The Ramkat was full of funk last week as The Dip and Eddie 9V graced their stage.



Eddie 9V opened the show full of groove, playing a mix of original songs and covers. The crowd loved his rendition of “Hold On” by Alabama Shakes. My favorite was his new song, “Saratoga,” which he described as something in between Chris Stapleton and St. Paul and the Broken Bones.



The Dip had a full stage, with saxophone, trumpet, keys, drums, and of course guitar all playing in harmony. They put on a fantastic show, with some favorites including “Slow Sipper” and “State Line.” We heard one of their new tunes, “Love Direction,” and bopped to the beat. The band ended the night off with one of their most known and most upbeat tunes, “Sure Don’t Miss You,” but the crowd sure did miss them, because they shouted for more songs until the band came back on stage to sing “Adeline.”



This was a great night full of music, and the staff at The Ramkat were friendly and helpful. I even caught one of their staff dancing with a friend from the audience at one point. Everyone had a good time at this show, and I would love to catch another one at The Ramkat in the future!
