Marquee Mayfield is another contribution to Nashville’s potent collective of well-turned out soul revivalists. He was reared in the stuff by his Motown-fanatic parents, and his music reflects his upbringing as well as his appreciation for electronic dance music and its effects on shoes, hips, and booties He headlines the Basement this Saturday, 11/23, supported by Sidewalk Chalk and The Grips. “Breakdown” is his current single. Does the intro remind me a little of “Anchorman?” Yes. Does this enhance my opinion of Mr. Mayfield? Absolutely. -Terra James-Jura
