Root Doctor - Live At The Cadillac Club
Root Doctor, a 2008 Blues Music Awards nominee, has entertained the Midwestern club-circuit for nearly two decades with memorable, high-energy live shows. A sensation wherever they perform, Root Doctor's sound has spread around the scene as they have finally become an internationally acclaimed Soul and Blues band.
Now, with a proof is in the pudding attitude, Root Doctor brings a typical live set to CD. Root Doctor: Live At The Cadillac Club! captures the band in front of an excited capacity crowd at one of Lansing's most unique live music venues.
Live At The Cadillac Club! features 10 prime cuts from Root Doctor's repertoire, each of them crowd favorites. Tracked while the band supported the release of Been A Long Time Coming, the set includes a mixture of songs from the previous two releases and three previously unreleased songs that are staples of Root Doctor's live shows.
The covers songs are especially noteworthy since Root Doctor puts its stamp on everything it touches. And nothing makes that clearer than this turbo-charged live set in front of an enthusiastic and highly supportive audience in Root Doctor's home town.
Michael Cloeren, festival director for The Poconos Blues Festival, described Root Doctor's show as "magical!" Frank Malfitano, former director of The Detroit Interntaional Jazz Festival, emphatically proclaimed that Root Doctor's set was "smokin!" And the Chicago Sun Times said "...Root Doctor fits together hand in glove." Now you can hear Root Doctor live and un-cut for yourself
