Lord Bishop Rocks, Louie Fontaine & the Starlight Searchers
Tuesday, Jan 16th, 2018 Brick & Mortar San Francisco, CA $10 ADV / $12 DOS / Age 18 And Up Lord Bishop Rocks Lord Bishop Rocks for sure is the most exciting and musically gifted Rock trio of the 21st century. They are mixing their brand of 70s influenced Hardrock, Funk, Blues, Jazz, Reggae and Punk - meshing it into a sound they call Hendrixian Motor Funk. There have been many trios before them: Cream, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Blue Cheer, Nirvana, Motorhead, Muse, Them Crooked Vultures, Green Day - all of these groups stand out because they brought a new life and a new perspective in how to make sonic expression in rock music. Lord Bishop Rocks has lifted this stylistic template to new stratospheric levels. Imagine Beatlesque melodies, Sabbath's heaviness and James Brown's funk all rolled into one. What is for sure is that sooner than later Lord Bishop Rocks will be rock music's most well known and sought after pure rock trio in the history of the music world. Louie Fontaine & the Starlight Searchers New Orleans has always attracted interesting artists, adventurers, entrepeneurs and musicians, from Lafitte the Pirate to Edgar Degas to Tennessee Williams to Emeril Lagasse. Louis Fontaine is a little bit of all of them, a Danish rock 'n' roll star who lived in New Orleans from 2000-2002 and returned to the city a couple of years ago. Since he's been back he's recorded a new album, The Sun Ain't Black, and bought a club near the Superdome called Handsome Willy's which will be the base for his band and his phenomenal 1000 pound creation The Beat Machine.
