Carnegie Hall’s final Ivy Terrace Concert is Thursday, Sept. 22, at 6:30 p.m. and features local soul group Dark Matters. Sponsored by City National Bank, the concert will take place outside on Carnegie Hall’s Ivy Terrace as attendees watch from the expansive lawn in front of New River Community and Technical College. Concertgoers are encouraged to bring a lawn chair or blanket and pack a picnic to enjoy live music. All Ivy Terrace concerts are free, open to the public, and alcohol free.
Dark Matters is a full-on soul band with heavy riffs from the guitar, a driving bassline, drums that make you leave your seat for the sweat of the dancefloor. The band is students of the music; digging deep into the record crates to find the melodies that mean something, the grooves that bring us together. Although this sound is rooted in late ‘60s Memphis, it is part of a movement of bands that continue to use real instruments to make meaningful music.
