"WE COUNTRY" SOUL REVUE!!!

We Country Cover

Presented by Urban Chestnut Brewing Company and Old Rock House

Our growing Soul Rhythm & Blues band family, Al Holliday and The East Side Rhythm Band, makes our home in beautiful St. Louis City, but just like you - deep down inside:

"WE COUNTRY!!!"

The band is teaming up with the one and only Country songwriting burners, the real thing if you don't know, Old Capital for a somewhat unlikely pairing that actually makes perfect sense for those familiar with the bands - or as the legendary Jamey Almond puts it, "both bands are SOUL FOOD for your EARS"

Al Holliday - Ain't No One Got a Good Thing:
 




Old Captial - Statue Guards




Of course, we will be doing our own natural, respective things aplenty, playing new music, and throwing it down, but for one night only we gon' add a healthy amount of what we do to each other's music and team up to throw it down for real!! Those a you that wanted to hear a little pedal steel and a little twang with your Mississippi River *Ride or Die* Soul Rhythm & Blues, baby don't sleep on dis!!!

ALL AGES SO BRING THEM KIDS AND YOUNGBLOODS

Al Holliday Western U.S. Tour


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

YOUNG-BLOODED SOUL SENSATION AL HOLLIDAY & THE EAST SIDE RHYTHM BAND ANNOUNCES FIRST EVER WESTERN U.S. TOUR!

ST. LOUIS – ( AUGUST 18, 2016 ) – Mound City Music is proud to present Al Holliday & The East Side Rhythm BandNatural Remedies Western U.S. Tour”!!!

Recently, our Mississippi River city has seen the rise of an undeniable young Soul/R&B collective not unlike the beginnings of the famous Daptone Records in NYC. This group, The East Side Rhythm Band is lead by St. Louis’ reigning “Best Male Vocalist” and “Best R&B Artist” (Riverfront Times), Al Holliday.

Fresh off performances with Galactic, Dumpstaphunk, Orgone, and The New Mastersounds, the band is touring the western U.S. in support of their brand new 12″ LP “Natural Remedies“.

Natural Remedies“, was cut live to analog tape with as much blood, sweat and tears as fried chicken and potato salad. “Holliday’s music undeniably shows traces of the South’s deep heritage,” says Christian Schaeffer from the Riverfront Times, “and his album can be seen as our river city’s ability to absorb influences and mold them to our own devices.”The performances on this album serve as a document of this burgeoning champion Soul and R&B organization, while the content is the revelation of an artist the likes of Van Morrison, Joe Cocker, and Leon Russell.

The “Natural Remedies Western U.S. Tour” is scheduled for:

Aug. 31st – Lawrence, KS @ The Bottleneck
Sep. 1 – Wichita, KS @ Barleycorn’s
Sep. 2 – Denver, CO @ Cervantes’ Other Side
Sep. 3 – Ft. Collins, CO @ Prost Tasting Room
