Why I’m promoting this show: I found this band playing a block party, on a closed off street, in Wallingford; I was just walking by and stopped to check them out for 2 straight hours, because they never stopped playing. They had set up on their front lawn with amps and proceeded to entertain a handful of neighbors (and kids). Points for that! Plus, they were really damn good; Ben Carson was friendly with the crowd and had a solid voice, as did Zach Fleury. Hot Bodies In Motion played a strong set of original danceable indie blues rock material, then switched it up with cover songs for the neighbors, some jamming, and finally struggled through a hilarious rock version of Alladin’s, “A Whole New World” by request for the kids.
It was a strange way to come upon a new band and, sadly, their posted tracks on Myspace/Facebook don’t yet do them any justice. I recommend checking these guys out tonight. And to keep watching them. For a better feel, watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VDnjQgJIfJk
I might request Disney songs.
