In the past year or so, Ketchy Shuby has worked its way up from playing small-time gigs to headlining sets at notable live venues including Transit Lounge, Churchill's, Tobacco Road, and Cunningham's in Vero Beach. The band landed a slot at the recent Future Classic Festival and a live set on WDNA's Sound Theory radio show. And this Wednesday, the guys will rock with Fusik at the Electric Pickle for the Tomorrows People showcase at the weekly party Champion Sound. "We want to thank everyone for the love, but also give a heads-up about these open-mike parties going on. Promoters need to keep their word and take care of the bands," Jay says.

After NOTIMETOHATE drops this year, Ketchy Shuby has bigger plans, including a vinyl single, "Surrender," and a full album tentatively called Tiny Vices that'll be out in early 2010. Band members are also keeping busy with offshoots of their own: Quinto and some Fusik members are working on a Latin/Afro-funk project; Jay has a group called the Love Tones with Stella of the Heartbreakerz crew; and Smiley and Jay are collaborating on music with just horns and brass, resulting in a big-band Afrobeat sound.

Ketchy Shuby's debut record, NOTIMETOHATE, will be released in November on Tomorrows People Recordings.

On a humid night last week, some members of the Tomorrows People crew celebrated Fusik drummer Felix's birthday at a live show for indie singer-songwriter Rachel Goodrich at Churchill's. It's not the first place you'd think the collective would go for a birthday jam, but it further proves soul is a state of mind, and downtown is the place to be.
