Anybody here heard or seen J. Roddy Walton and The Business? They're from Baltimore by way of Tennessee, but play all over. I saw them on New Year's Eve and was blown away by how tight and rocking/swinging they are, and by how much better they'd gotten since the last time I saw them. They do straight-up rock, driven by J. Roddy's piano, and reminded me of My Morning Jacket crossed withe the Faces. I ended up timing the first 40 minutes of their set because my immediate thought was that they would be an awesome festival band. And I don't work for the band, I just would love to see them rock the hell out at the Polo Fields.
