The Beat Hounds
I had a chance to quickly preview The Beat Hounds debut album before the show, so I knew I was in for good rock n roll. I met the very friendly Matt and David while the first band was playing but it was impossible to talk over the music, so I didn't get to ask how "Brooklyn Southern Rock" came about. When they went on, I grabbed the best seat up front to sneak in a few pics and then got out of the way of the captivated audience. Even though I had only had one listen through the album, I recognized the songs as they were played. They call themselves The Beat Hounds, but the music is guitar-driven. An updated version of classic rock with a southern flavor and very soulful vocals. Matt's skillful guitar playing is fun to watch and the bands classic sound is even more powerful in person. Seeing them live made instant fans out of everyone there.
We had to dash after the show for the trek home, but we will catch up with The Beat Hounds again whenever they visit Detroit. It's a guaranteed good time.
Speaking of good times...SEE YOU SATURDAY!!!
