V Club will kick off Halloween weekend this year with the club’s ninth annual Halloween Freektacular Friday night.

The show will include performances by Downtown King as well as the event’s namesake, Freekbass. The doors open at 8 p.m. Tickets will be available at the door and at vclublive.com.

Local promoter Don Duncan said this is the V Club’s ninth year pre-senting the event with funk bassist Chris “Freekbass” Sherman and his band The Bump Assembly.

“There’s a reason we’ve been doing this for nine years,” Duncan said. “Huntington loves Freekbass.”

According to the band’s website, the funk outfit hails from Cincinnati, Ohio, and has plenty of experience in the funk world. The full band is named after bassist Chris “Freekbass” Sherman.

Freekbass has released six full-length albums with numerous guests, including Bootsy Collins, Phish bassist Mike Gordon, Steve Molitz and Talking Heads’ Bernie Worrel. The site also describes Freekbass as the protégé of funk legend Bootsy Collins. Collins has produced much of the bassist’s work.

Freekbass’ performance at the V Club marks the first date on the band’s upcoming tour that will reach stages in Kentucky, New York, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin.

Sherman recently released an album, “Everybody is Feeling Real,” produced by Duane Lundy, according to freekbass.com. The band was part of the London Bass Guitar Show this year, where Sherman taught a bass clinic.

Tickets to the funk show are $10.
