Barfieldâ€™s brand of â€œTexas Funkâ€ has blues and rock infused into its funkiness and is delivered by a guy that doesnâ€™t look the part. Think of a six-foot leprechaun (with red lambchop sideburns) who shimmies like James Brown. Thatâ€™s Mike Barfield. Oh, and he wears a cowboy hat. It is Texas after all. And when you watch Barfield in action, itâ€™s hard to reconcile what he does onstage with who is doing it. Hell, thatâ€™s part of what keeps the people coming back.
