Al Holliday & the East Side Rhythm Band
In a few short years, Al Holliday & The East Side Rhythm Band have built their reputation as the hard-hitting, world-class, force-of-R-&-B-nature beyond comparison. People everywhere have done more than just take notice as this young-blooded crew has brought their searing, raw performances to stages from their hometown St. Louis, across the region, and beyond.
The 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.
