Soul music is having a revival – Halleluiah! Finally, finally we are starting to hear more of the tunes that make us shiver, that tear at our hearts and souls. New ones, so we don’t have to always rely on our old school playlists. The late night talk crews have gotten on board; most recently with Stephen Colbert’s opening of The Late Show featuring the likes of Paul Janeway of St. Paul & The Broken Bones, and Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes, to name a few. His house band is Jon Batiste and Stay Human. Enough said.
This past weekend, I went over to Forest Hills Stadium to see Alabama Shakes live, and along with craft beer, delicious wine, and lobster rolls, was treated to goose bump inducing, tear jearking tunes that make one oh so happy.
