Brian Lindsay of Rochester recently released his third album, The Monkey, The Tango, and The Boogaloo under GFL music record company. The album dropped in late May and caused quite a stir in Upstate New York. Frank De Blase mentioned this album in Rochester City newspaper. “This is a work of art I highly recommend you spend some time with. In fact get two, one to share with a friend”. Blasé complimented.
Lindsay’s band has made appearances at Rochester’s Lilac Festival, Party in the Park series, and The Bands on the Bricks series and Canandaigua Music & Arts Festival. They performed on the main stage at 4-day Oswego Harbor Festival when they opened for Herman’s Hermits Pete Noone.
The Monkey, The Tango, and The Boogaloo opens up with the track “What Does Love Mean to You?” The song has a soulful vibe but with the hard guitar riffs and Brian’s old school rock voice; the song is a hit for any classic rock n roll fan.
The album also comes with some slower and more country influenced songs. The song “Empty Heart” brings out one of those old bar songs that would be drinking over heartache.The chorus burst with a steady beat with the lyrics “Don’t believe in love at first sight. Love is romance and candlelight. Don’t go looking for love in a bar. Baby, don’t go drinking with an empty heart.”
The album overall is a great listen. If listeners want to find something that is classic rock n roll with a touch of soul, and a hint of country, The Monkey, The Tango, and The Boogaloo is a mixture of everything.
