So I've decided to take a break from French language this evening to share with you a special act that started in my hometown of Hamilton, Ontario. I know I normally focus on mostly electronic music but believe it or not I do listen to something more than loops of wicked beats. The Emerson Street Rhythm Band is a funky rock reggae experience like no other, guaranteed to keep your feet moving and your ears begging for more. These 5 hard-working chaps from the Toronto area have been putting on original and crowd-pleasing shows in and around the Golden Horseshoe for 5 years now, and they show no signs of slowing down. You can check them out at www.myspace.com/esrbisfunky for a taste of what they are capable of, and you can also download the track "Daily Operation" from their first album "Five Cents Short of a Dollar" right here. If you're in Toronto and looking for amazing music, check these guys out at the Rose & Crown at Yonge & Eglinton on November 20th, and on New Year's Eve at The Cadillac Lounge. They are currently finalists in the Whiskey Soul music video contest run by the LCBO. Please take the time to vote for them no one deserves sweet victory more than these guys.
