In a few years, Al Holliday and The East Side Rhythm Band have built their reputation as the hard-hitting, world-class, force-of-Soul-and-R-and-B-nature beyond comparison. The St. Louis 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 artist, Al Holliday.
