Barrence Whitfield: "I Have Enough Energy to Move A Lot of People"

Since the early 1980s, Barrence Whitfield & the Savages have been pummeling audiences across the globe with a fiery mix of R&B, soul, funk and rock. Known for his over the top stage presence, Whitfield enjoys turning concerts into physical therapy sessions. The recently issued Dig Thy Savage Soul is the band's first stateside release since 1995 and may be the best thing Whitfield and crew has ever done.

From his home in Boston (while looking at twenty inches of snow) and in anticipation of Thursday night's show at Three Links, Whitfield talked with DC9 about the new album on a new label and how he still has what it takes to make an audience sweat.
