Josh Dion Band: Live!

Don Henley. Phil Collins. Levon Helm. Josh Dion.

The 26-year-old drummer/vocalist keeps some pretty decent company. And although Josh Dion's musical approach differs from The Eagles, Genesis and The Band his band is more soulful and funkier than any of those three the talent is just as obvious. As a one-time member of New York City's funk and jazz hybrid ulu, Dion's flair for writing cohesive yet complex tunes evolved into his own group. Live! captures the man and his band giving smoking performances in New York, Connecticut and Virginia clubs. The trio of musicians surrounding him plus the sultry yet twangy vocals of Sarah Versprille provides the perfect sonic environment for Dion to lay down heavy grooves and funky beats while emoting in classic singer/songwriter style. Whether covering Curtis Mayfield ("Let's Do It Again") and Stevie Wonder ("Boogie On Reggae Woman") or cranking out memorable original jams like "Bedroom Eyes" and "Birdwalker," the Josh Dion Band exude a sonic energy that must be highly contagious in a live setting.
