How can you not be curious about a band with a name like Brother Joscephus & the Love Revival Revolution Orchestra? Described as “a 12-piece explosion of righteousness that blends New Orleans party music, Dixieland, funk, soul, a good helping of jam bandy roots rock, and a splash of good, upbeat gospel without the religious overtones,” it was a real mixed bag of all those styles and much more.
I was happy to be in Woodstock and at one of my favorite music venues (the warm and wonderful Bearsville Theater), and I was anticipating a good night. With the recent current world events, economic uncertainty or maybe even personal woes, anyone can lose themselves, even for just a few hours, to unravel and to dance. And this was certainly the place and the music to do just that.
