PREMIERE: Watch Con Brio & The London Souls Tear Up This Sam Cooke Cover Live

first_imgOut of New York, The London Souls are a blues-rock duo composed of guitarist Tash Neal and drummer Chris St. Hilaire, and the two have been enchanting audiences with their explosive live performances for nearly a decade. It seems as though Con Brio functions as an almost perfect inverse of The London Souls. Where the London Souls are reminiscent of the raw musical stylings of the Black Keys, Con Brio, and particularly the group’s charismatic singer and frontman Ziek McCarter, evokes psychedelia-drenched James Brown and Otis Redding. And while The London Souls have a decade of performance under their belt, Con Brio is a relatively new project out of San Francisco, with the band dropping their debut LP Paradise last summer.Con Brio Covers Stevie Wonder While Cruising Over The Golden Gate Bridge [Watch]Despite these surface-level differences, both Con Brio and The London Souls have taken the music world by storm as of late. Both acts offer up music that taps straight into the heart, and both have similarly been wowing crowds across the country with their uplifting and fiery performances. At the tail end of the summer, Con Brio and The London Souls teamed up for a joint six-date tour across the East Coast in promotion of a collaborative 7-inch vinyl featuring tracks “All Over Me” and “Certain Appeal”.This joint project is somewhat of a long time coming considering The London Souls’ drummer St. Hilaire and Con Brio bassist Jonathan Kirchner have been friends since childhood. As told by Kirchner, “Chris and Tash and I go back to high school days in New York. They were always the baddest musicians I knew, so to get to play shows together all these years later—and of course to have them sit in and rip it on a couple songs—was a total dream come true.”Watch The London Souls Obliterate Their Late Night Jazz Fest Set [Video]Today, Live For Live Music is proud to premiere a live pro-shot video of the two band’s collaborative tour—a joint rendition of Sam Cooke’s “Bring It On Home To Me” for a performance at Boston’s Brighton Music Hall on August 23rd. Kirchner gave more context to the performance, “[Con Brio saxophonist Marcus Stephens] gets the nod for suggesting the Sam Cooke cover a couple days before this video was shot. We ran it once in soundcheck and then just went for it. They’re such natural musicians it was a breeze to throw together, and you could tell the crowd really responded to the spontaneity of it.”You can watch the video for yourself below to get a taste of what these two powerhouse performers can do when they join forces.You can find out more information about Con Brio on their website and about The London Souls on their website.Upcoming Con Brio Tour Dates12/27/2017   Harlows – Sacramento12/28/2017   Moe’s – Santa Cruz12/29/2017   Hopmonk – Sebastopol12/30/2017   Swedish American – San Francisco12/31/2017   Swedish American – San Francisco1/13/2018   Crystal Bay Casino – Crystal Bay, NN1/17-1/22/2018   Jam CruiseUpcoming The London Souls Tour Dates3/7/2018 – The Music of Led Zeppelin – Carnegie Hall – NYC[Photo: Cortney Armitage]last_img read more

NBA coronavirus memo discourages high-fives, underlines concern for exploding illness in U.S.

first_imgAs the rapidly spreading coronavirus hits North America this week, sports organizations are scrambling to issue directives to players and coaches to avoid the sickness, which as of Monday night had killed six people in the U.S. and many more worldwide.The NBA issued a memo Monday telling league members to, among other things, favor fist-bumps over high-fives and limit autographs, according to ESPN. Several players have spoken about the coronavirus in recent days, and the awareness of the illness is likely to grow quickly as it becomes more pervasive in the U.S.The Corona Virus has officially hit Oregon. More specifically Lake Oswego…Make sure y’all washing y’all hands with soap for 20 or more seconds & covering ya mouths when you cough. I am officially taking a break from signing autographs until further notice.Sincerely,CJ— CJ McCollum (@CJMcCollum) February 29, 2020The NBA acknowledged its plans for grappling with COVID-19 are fluid.”The coronavirus remains a situation with the potential to change rapidly,” the league wrote in a memo. Reporting with @ZachLowe_NBA: In memo to teams on coronavirus, NBA suggests players choose fist-bumps over high-fives and avoid taking items such as pens, balls and jerseys to autograph. Teams also concerned about corona impact on pre-draft process. Story: https://t.co/dKZyDMZdVy— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) March 2, 2020With NBA travel not curtailed, though, it seems unlikely for players to completely eliminate the risk of COVID-19 given their daily interactions with hundreds (if not thousands) of people. The risk of serious illness, however, is relatively low for athletes in peak physical condition, as experts say older adults are at the highest risk of severe complications.MORE: NCAA monitoring coronavirus ahead of tournamentBeyond the fact that elaborate handshakes are a core part of basketball culture, there is no avoiding physical contact or close conversation between players, fans and even the reporters in locker rooms before and after games. Because COVID-19, which started in Wuhan, China, is still a novel sickness, not everything is known about how it spreads. What is clear, however, is that it can jump from person to person in a variety of ways, from sneezing and coughing to straightforward vocal interaction.last_img read more
