Rising from the same London underground as the Brand New Heavies, Jamiroquai exhumes the ’70s soul music that coexisted with disco and is a prominent influence on today’s G-funk and acid jazz. The star of the band is singer Jason Kay, whose ecstatic bellowing recalls Stevie Wonder’s seminal work more than Stevie himself does these days. But as gifted a singer as Kay is, he has a tough time selling his lyrical passions, perhaps because he doesn’t seem to feel that faith and sex are equally spiritual when their paths cross in the groove. Kudos to the band for picking up the slack; recommended for those horny moments when you want the music to take care of the seduction for you. With Deep Dish Boys at 8 p.m. at Capitol Ballroom, 1015 Half St. SE. $23. (202) 554-1500. (Brett Anderson)
