About last night: A special thanks to all who attended the Preachermann and The Revival show at Friends and Lovers in Brooklyn (October 22nd)! The room was packed, the energy was high and the audience was with us all the way!! The feedback after the show was phenomenal. They loved us! It was an epic night!!
One night - Three great bands:
The show at Friends and Lovers last night featured Funkrust Brass Band, Preachermann and the Revival and Johnny Freelance Experience (headliner). It was one night of awesome entertainment of music that did not disappoint!
Funkrust, opened with an extravaganza of big band, choreographed brass numbers with a sexy lead mistress, Monica Hunken who held it all together with her vocals (through a megaphone) and sexy dance moves all decorated in lights. The all brass band was decorated in mardi gras outfits with lights. I felt like I was on the streets in New Orleans. It was unbelievable! The music was all original and composed by band founder and musician, Phil Andrews. What an opening!
Preachermann and The Revival followed suit by delivering another incredible show of dynamic vocals and music from Preachermann and his band, The Revival. The band took the audience through a musical journey of soul cleansing and rejuvenation all while entertaining with Preachermann's hilarious antics. By the end of the show, the audience was climbing the walls with excitement. It was a joy to watch!
Once the Johnny Freelance Experience, the headliner, hit the stage, the audience was ready to continue continue the evening with great entertainment. The Johnny Freelance Experience delivered with an electric set of high energy, strong vocals of lead singer Afrika Bibang, and the awesome musicianship of Nicholas Dominic Talvola on trumpet. It was nothing short of incredible. The sound reminded me of the dance music I love so much and it was hard to stand still. The music was so great you had to move your feet! It was an incredible night of music and entertainment!!
To Preachermann (Ed Holley): A very special thanks for allowing me to sing with you and express myself through my music and creativity! I learn so much from you. You are one of the most incredible singers I know and I am honored to share the stage with you! It's only a matter of time before the whole world knows of your greatness. Once that happens, the sky's the limit!!
To the Revival Band (Jonah Rosenberg, Joseph Paldino, Paul Paldino, Manny Montanez and David Hoffman): Thank you for the wonderful music you supplied us last night. The awesome music and energy that you provided us last night allowed us to take the show to another level! Thank you to each and everyone of you for your music, talent and your energy you bring to the band!!
Thanks to the DJ Mojo for producing the show and bringing all these great bands and musicians together. It was a highly successful show and judging from the audience feedback it was well received!
Music has the power to change the world! It's wonderful to listen to recorded music but there's nothing like the live performance experience. The energy of the room, the music, being with music lovers and making connections with new people cannot not be experience at home. I feel so honored to be a part of it!
A special thanks to all our fans for your continued love and support of Preachermann and the Revival! Shalimar and stay crunchy!!
