Album Release Party!
with Big Mike & The Blu City All Stars
St. Louis’ own Al Holliday & The East Side Rhythm Band plays the soulful Rhythm and Blues – with a feeling! The name of this band pays tribute to the burning Rhythm and Blues music that has come from our beloved Metro-East. This band is deeply influenced by this music, along with classic Soul, and the music of New Orleans. They take all of these things, and do their very own, natural thing – consecrated with a tinge of musical “hip”-ness.
The East Side Rhythm Band is built on the rock-solid, foundation rhythm section of Neil Ghanti and Caleb Klinger. Rolling deep with a battery of Horn players – set this band up, and let them blow! Over the top of the whole thing, Al Holliday testifies, and there is not one jive bone in that man’s body.
