Best known for their track ‘WOKE UP THIS MORNING’, made famous for being the soundtrack to hit HBO series ‘The Sopranos’ the Brixton blues rockers Alabama 3 are bound for Newbridge.
They play an acoustic set to play an intimate show Thursday 12th July in Kildare’s own dedicated live music venue Upstairs @ JRB’s.
Heeding Woodie Guthrie’s maxim, ALABAMA 3 have never feared the reduction of their technology.
Consequently, Alabama 3 acoustic is brave enough to go out on the road armed only with a battered acoustic guitar and harmonica, preaching Guthrie’s word that this machine kills fascists.
In homage to classic delta blues slide players like Mississippi Fred McDowell, Howling Wolf, John Lee Hooker and their own Rockfree Base, the stripped back set present’s their own narco-acoustic slant on Alabama 3 and the music that has inspired them along the way.
Complete with Larry Love’s gravelly ash-stained vocals, Rev. Be Atwell’s soul cry and Nick Reynolds bank robber melodies on harmonica, they provide an acoustic show which is in no way constrained. Gig goers will enjoy arrangements of the latest recordings along with their back catalogue of hits. An unrivaled Marxist machine gun, Alabama 3 Acoustic are on a mission to get you mashed!
Support on the night comes from Newbridge based band APPO & THE DISAPPOINTMENTS.
