North Mississippi Allstars Bring Southern Rock to Austin

Check these guys out! You should already like them just cause of this picture!

This is the North Mississippi Allstars. Labeled as hill country blues-infused rock & roll  they are a definite must for any rock music enthusiast.

Cody (drums) and Luther (guitar), sons of Memphis musician and record producer Jim Dickinson,  joined up with Chris Chew (bass) in 1996 to form the NMAS. Throughout the next ten years the band recorded numerous Grammy nominated albums that totally deserve all the cred.

Both brothers play with other bands, Luther in The Black Crows and Cody in Hill Country Revue, but the Allstars remain a priority. As a result of their fathers death in 2009, the inspired band wrote Keys to the Kingdom, about the celebration of life and the grieving process of death. It is definitely their most powerful album yet. David Shehi, live music editor of Honest Tunes, put the album in his Top 11 of 2011 list.

Get the album, go to the show, rock out.
