You just don’t see many bands these days with horn sections and that’s a shame. They add a such a huge dynamic to the sound, particularly with a rhythm and blues band. We’re lucky to have a really good group in these parts. Rhythm Congress brings a healthy dose of horns to their shows and they always manage to get the crowd on their feet.
I got to catch their recent show at the Black Sparrow Music Parlor in Taylor, TX - a wonderfully intimate little music venue well away from the Austin metro. Live music is a passion of mine and I love that the Black Sparrow brings in an eclectic mix to small town Taylor. You can hear everything from Big Band to Death Metal at this place.
My lovely and talented friend Samantha sings lead for Rhythm Congress and I always enjoy her energetic performances. I met Samantha back in my days of photographing the Texas Stars, where she frequently kicks off the games by singing the national anthem. Her band is is rock solid and a joy to see and hear.
