southern royal brotherhood

Tonight rock ‘n’ roll returns to the Brick & Mortar Music Hall with The Royal Southern Brotherhood. We’d tell you why you should go, but Royal Southern Brotherhood bio says its best:

Before they even hit a chord, The Royal Southern Brotherhood have your attention. In the US South, where music is religion, two rock ‘n’ roll bloodlines tower above all others. In the saloon bars from Mississippi to Maryland, mere mention of the Allman and Neville Brothers casts a magic spell. Conversation falls silent. Pool balls stop rolling. Ten-gallon hats are tipped in respect and beer-bottles raised in salute. These aren’t just bands, they’re gods, and with a lineup comprising both the iconic Cyril Neville and Devon Allman, The Royal Southern Brotherhood come pre-loaded with expectations. Don’t worry: they can match them. The family tree might be auspicious, but this new band trades on talent, not genealogy. It’s not about rock history: it’s about the here-and-now.

Tomorrow, you can criticize Nickelback. Today, you can download Thrillcall’s iPhone app and get your tickets to rock’s roots. Listen below to the group’s single “New Horizon.”
