Al Holliday & The Eastside Rhythm Band will perform at Barleycorn's Saturday, Jan. 13 from 7–9 p.m. The soul-inspired group features Holliday's signature blues-based vocals—which have earned him acclaim from the St. Louis-area paper, Riverfront Times—as well as plenty of southern-inflected piano and horns.

You can hear plenty of what has listeners across the region excited via the album Natural Remedies (2015) or through the collective's live shows.
