I don’t know how I missed these guys so far, but here you go, Spirit of Radio live – date and location unknown.
These guys are tops on my list today. Horns, a funky beat and hint of bluegrass around the edges; then you throw in a bit of Hammond B3 and I’m hooked. They’ve got a free gig in Harrisburg, PA today.
A few tracks online at their site: http://www.thebridgemusic.com/music.html
Archive.org Live Recordings (120 shows – the show from February at the Paradise is in high rotation on my Iphone)
This one’s for Mark…enjoy…
Okay, replace the words “MCA” with the words “Geffen” and it’s still pretty much appropriate, even though the record companies have come down more than a couple notches.
Listening and watching, I’m reminded how tight they were. These guys obviously loved to play…
The bonus track at the end is “I Ain’t the One”
Who says you need a record company? Jonathan Coulton is living proof.
My parents first date was a Dave Brubeck Concert at my dad’s frat at UPenn – they sat under his piano. I got to tell the story to Dave many years later when I met him in Burlington, VT.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DDOgYw5-pNs
