Listening to Al Holliday belt out his soul-revival tunes, you'd think he was a 65-year-old Motown renegade compelled to sing about hard times and funky women. Shockingly, the booming, professional voice belongs to a young chap with fuzzy hair and a cherub's face. Holliday expertly pounds the keys with his chums in the East Side Rhythm Band, but his vocals are where the brassy, New Orleans-style group cements its sound. Smoothly running from bass notes to Wilson Pickett-like howls, Holliday brings Mardi Gras to every performance.
