Not many bands have made such a positive first impression or continued to stoke our faith in them over the years as NYC’s Leroy Justice. The essence of greats like The Black Crowes and The Band murmur in their bones, and they look just like we think a rock band should – there’s something of an archetype about them. Judge for yourself in these super sweet photos from Joe Russo captured at the band’s February performance at Brooklyn Bowl with guests God Street Wine’s Lo Faber and saxophonist Michael Kammers guesting. There’s a new performance video of an unreleased track from this show below the photos, too.
Leroy Justice returns to the Bowl to open for the North Mississippi Allstars next Friday, April 6th, along with a handful of opening slots for NMA this week and some other gigs the next – dates & details. And if you haven’t already, y’all need to get familiar with Leroy Justice’s two albums, Revolution’s Son and The Loho Sessions as we wait impatiently for record number three (which we think is gonna be pretty fucking great based on the new tunes they’re doing live).
