The Southern Belles make me want to learn to hula hoop, they make me want to roll around in the grass and put flowers in my hair. They are exactly what I want on a summer day, or on a really freakin’ cold winter’s day in Charlottesville. It was a happy day to realize that I could join them at their monthly gig at Rapture in Charlottesville, VA. The Southern Belles vigorously crank out a combination of psychedelic funky rock with a firm foundation in country. The night at Rapture would be even fuller with the addition of the musical genius that is Stephen Kuester on his lap steel. I love the twang and how rich the sound can be with a lap steel (and a master playing it.) The boys are all chock full of talent, each one of them sings and I’m always blown away when Tommy belts out Floyd while his fingers nimbly run up and down his keyboard. Damn, Tommy! Do IT!
