About Average White Band

Average White Band is widely regarded as one of the best soul and funk bands in music history. Though perhaps best known for their timeless instrumental mega-hit ‘Pick Up the Pieces’, the band’s strength lay in their consistently accomplished songwriting, stretching across several gold-selling albums and multi- grammy nominations for the legendary Atlantic Records.

Whilst a good number of cuts – ‘Cut The Cake’ and ‘Let’s Go ‘Round Again’ to name but two – attracted chart action as hit singles, many other album tracks, like ‘Schoolboy Crush’ and ‘Person to Person’ became much sampled and turn-tabled ‘rare’ grooves. Many more tunes, such as ‘Cloudy’, ‘A Love Of Your Own’ and ‘Nothing You Can Do’ – amongst many others- stand alongside some of the finest soul ‘album tracks’ ever recorded.

Unsurprisingly, the Average White Band is now a multi-generational attraction and a perennial fixture with many top music venues.
