The Mike Livingston Band’s All-American musical throwdown is a wild amalgam of country, soul and rock & roll, all emphatically put across with Livingston’s frantic 88 keys and authoritative vocals and the coolly propulsive rhythm section of drummer Adam Steinberg and bassist Ben Getting.
It’s a highly unlikely and deliciously volatile combination—down and dirty street-smart and sleek, after-hours stylish, it’s equal parts Deep Southern blue yodel and classic 70s Hollywood punk strut, a recipe for disaster that nonetheless functions perfectly, thanks to the lurid pedigree of the players.
