Caught J. Roddy Walston and The Business at Chop Suey last Monday. Long hairs from Baltimore. Piano sounding good, honky tonk. Definite Jerry Lee Lewis invocation (not imitation) -- don't see that too much these days. Straight up rock'n'roll. All originals 'cept one Little Richard cover (again, don't hear that too much these days). Some clever hooks. Opened with "Don't Break The Needle" and closed with "Used To Did" their two hits if you will. Got crowd singing along to the last one. They put on a show for the small Monday crowd. A hard workin' rock'n'roll band fer sure. Here's some pics of the ring leader by Adam Forslund:
