Paul Cebar Tomorrow Sound bring forth a funky, lyrically charged racket that is explosive, yet intimate. Taking cues from the dance bands of western Louisiana and his native Midwest, the streets and 45’s of New Orleans, touring African and Caribbean combos and the soul, funk & blues of his youth, Paul Cebar is a masterful synthesist of rhythmic culture. His time spent in his second home of New Orleans, as a musicologist in Florida, and as a journeyman wanderer in Cuba, is reflected in his musical worldview. At the core is gifted songwriting, and the company Paul keeps bears it out: Bonnie Raitt, Nick Lowe, Chris Smither, John Hiatt and Cesar Rosas (Los Lobos) are among his friends and admirers.
Tomorrow Sound are an elite crew. Drummer Reggie Bordeaux, New Orleans native percussionist Mac Perkins, and bassist Mike Fredrickson, throw down some of the best dance grooves in the business. Multi-instrumentalist Bob Jennings adds the luxury of implying a much larger ensemble with his multi-hued contributions on keys and reeds. Their latest album, “Fine Rude Thing” is out now. The songs “Baby Shake” and “You Owe it to Me” feature Cebar’s unique mixture of R&B, Caribbean and New Orleans style.
Jon Rodine is a Minnesota-based singer/songwriter. Drawing on sources like Dan Penn, Doug Sahm, Bob Dylan and beyond, his music is song-driven, a blend of Americana, groove-oriented rock’n’roll and country soul.
Rodine’s most recent album “Last Star” – his first collection of original material – has been getting notice around the country. “Eleven songwriting gems” says Mondophonic.com, but “his strongest asset is his voice”.
He’s shared the bill with artists like Ralph Stanley, Fred Eaglesmith, Tom Russell, The Pines, and Jimmy LaFave. He plays and has recorded with some the finest musicians in the Midwest – Dave Ray & Tony Glover, Erik Koskinen & Molly Maher, Paul Cebar, Benson Ramsey (The Pines), Steve Kaul (Brass Kings), and Dan “Daddy Squeeze” Newton.
