AT ALIVE AFTER FIVE: ROYAL SOUTHERN BROTHERHOOD AND LOCAL OPENER LOUNGE ON FIRE

Screen Shot 2014-07-15 at 6.07.05 PM

This week’s Alive After Five headliner: Royal Southern Brotherhood 
Go Listen Boise local opener: Lounge On Fire

ABOUT ROYAL SOUTHERN BROTHERHOOD

Mike Zito, Devon Allman, Cyril Neville — The soul of the south. Amplified soul for the new generation. Before they even hit a chord, The Royal Southern Brotherhood have your attention. In the U.S. South, where music is religion, two rock ‘n’ roll bloodlines tower above all others. In the saloon bars from Mississippi to Maryland, mere mention of the Allman and Neville Brothers casts a magic spell. Conversation falls silent. Pool balls stop rolling. Ten-gallon hats are tipped in respect and beer-bottles raised in salute. These aren’t just bands, they’re gods, and with a lineup comprising both the iconic Cyril Neville and Devon Allman, The Royal Southern Brotherhood come pre-loaded with expectations. Don’t worry: they can match them.
