The Unholy Roller Revival is a burlesque parody of religion that emulates an old time traveling gospel tent revival featuring the Preacher of Perversion, The Reverened Pastor Father Ben Wisdom and the apostolic beauties Little Luna, Ginger Licious, and GoGo McGregor all backed up by Dahktur Sick and This Stunted Sextette with Saint Cecelia's Asylum Choir.
Band: Joe Krown, Walter Wolfman Washington & Russell Batiste Jr.
CD title: Soul Understanding
CD release date: April 25, 2013
Genre: Organ Trio, New Orleans style Funk and Soul
Soul Understanding is the Trio's 3rd CD release. This is a follow up to their award winning debut CD, Live at the Maple Leaf (2008) and Triple Threat (2010). Soul Understanding is a collection of 12 songs. Ten songs were written by the band members and five songs are vocal featuring Mr. Washington. As in many of the classic organ trios, the Hammond organ, with the bass being played on the organ is driving the sound. Each tune has its own sound and feel and the interaction between the musicians never stops.
Come swing with The Yat Pack, a New Orleans-based band that brings back the swing era with a Vegas flair. Sinatra, Dean Martin, Louis Prima, Buble, Cocker, Connick, Frogman... you name it, we'll play it if it's swingin'!
