North Mississippi Allstars
Boogie down with this rock + blues jam band
To say that the blues run in the family for the North Mississippi Allstars would be an understatement; two of its leading members are brothers, Luke Dickinson and Cody Dickinson, sons of famed musical producer Jim Dickinson. The duo have been primped and primed for life as Southern rock stars since their childhood. The string of Grammy nominations are a given for the band, whose hypnotic Americana jams are a serious treat. Lightnin’ Malcom revs up this Brooklyn Bowl shindig. General admission. Over 21s only.
"Luther Dickinson sings and plays guitar, his brother Cody adds percussion and samples, and though they use studio effects, the album succeeds because it has a freshness, raw energy and attack reminiscent of the way Mama Rosin re-work Cajun music."
