Al Holliday and The East Side Rhythm Band
Mi. 19. August @ 19:30 - 22:00
*/*/*/ 2021 Tour Dates coming soon… /*/*/*
In a few short years, Al Holliday & The East Side Rhythm Band have built their reputation as the hard-hitting, world-class, force-of-Soul-and-R-&-B-nature beyond comparison.
“Holliday certainly has the capability to take this little slice of R&B and make it his own.”
People everywhere have done more than just take notice as this young-blooded crew has brought their searing, raw performances to stages from their hometown St. Louis, across the country, and beyond.
The band’s distinct brand of Soul music is a bit less “New York City” and much more “Mississippi River”.
Their sound combines the loose, funky feel of New Orleans R&B along with the visceral power and intensity of East St. Louis’ own Ike & Tina Turner – and they bring it all right to ya with truly inspired original numbers by an undeniable, natural born singer, Al Holliday.
“He sings with a depth and grit and twang not usually found in the metro area, and his comfort with Chicago blues, big-band soul and barrelhouse piano shows scholarship beyond his years. His voice is just growl-y enough that listeners may write it off as a pastiche of Randy Newman, or Joe Cocker, or Fats Domino, or some amalgam of all three. It may be, but Holliday owns it and uses it to sell these familiar-sounding tunes.”
