North Mississippi Allstars Turn On Their Love Lights In Santa Fe [Photos]

first_imgLoad remaining images Thing heated up in the City Different over the weekend as the summer winds blew The North Mississippi Allstars into town. Taking over the main stage at The Bridge, Santa Fe Brewing Company’s campus concert venue, the southern brothers delivered a solid, 2-hour set of classic blues as well as a multitude of tunes off of their new album, Prayer For Peace.Throughout the night, there was no single weak number and the setlist was dotted with a mass of segues and jams that bent both heart and mind thanks to the slide virtuosity of Luther Dickinson and the added key expressions of Cody Dickinson, as he held the job of both drums and synth, often at the same time. Joined by Dominic Davis, session player and good friend to Jack White, the bass duties were solid in feel and in groove, not only showing this man’s ability to fill the low-end shoes, but also clearly showing that the Brothers Dickinson can lay it down with the best of them.Nary a soul left the venue early in hopes of finding something better to do, as the performance exuded a tight continuity throughout the night. This feeling was mutual on the stage and in the audience, as the Allstars chose to fill the hearts of all in attendance with a raucous version of Bobby “Blue” Bland’s “Turn On Your Lovelight.” For both those who have seen these players before and for those who haven’t: Make time for the sublime wine that these men pour and be drunk on the funk that leaves you wanting more!The North Mississippi Allstars continue their current tour with a performance tonight at The Roxy Theatre in West Hollywood, CA.
