If you can think of similar -hard rock-psychedelic Funk- commercial somewhat bands in this vein from back then.

Post em.
I'm going to go look for some Pacific Gas and Electric live from back 69-70 then, footage : D

back to Brian for a second this from his wiki.

Bill Graham, the impresario behind the Fillmore West and the Fillmore East, felt that Brian was an exciting live rock drummer.[citation needed] The few times the Chambers Brothers were not top-billed (not the main act that night) with Brian on drums, the top-billed group was reluctant to follow them because they were intimidated by the Chambers Brothers with Keenan on drums. The Brothers affectionately referred to Brian as Curley and introduced him onstage as Brian "Chambers" Keenan. The Chambers Brothers predated Sly and the Family Stone as harbingers of psychedelic soul.

(must watch video in post #1)

or did he move out front
(mod orange? for those into vinyls..)

Here:
"When it became clear that Allen was the best singer in the new group, he became the front man, and Frank Cook, previously of Canned Heat, came into the band on drums."

My band opened for The Chambers Brothers at a small Club in Modesto California back around '79 or '80.

I had PG&E "Are you Ready" on 8-track in High School. I love that album.
