Leisure Colony “Chromatone Cooldown”

This video from Leisure Colony‘s last visit to Sweet Baby Lou captures the band playing at the height of its set. Following a cover of Judas Priest’s “Breakin’ the Law”, they transitioned into this blistering cut from their newly released “Protectorate EP”. The band recently announced that they will be playing live at UMass for the Cannabis Reform Coalition’s Battle of the Bands on April 1st with some stellar live bands including The Frills and Anti-Tank Dog.

Sweet Baby Lou Page: Motown Man

Bennie “Motown Man” Johnson Bio:

Motown Man, often a public figure of much scrutiny and prestige in the Amherst area, is best known for his nightly sidewalk sing-a-longs, when he can be found singing your favorite oldies. While much of Motown’s life is a mystery, including his alleged stories of “jamming with Hendrix” and how the story of his life was once an option for a major studio film, this much is true: Motown Man can rock the hits with nothing but his voice, signature cape and beaten-down bucket. Check out more Motown Benny below.

The Worst 2 Minutes of Radio (Ever!)

When Sweet Baby Lou & The Reverends of Funk needed to end their “Dreams a Dream” show last Wednesday, the answer was simple.

Wake everyone up.

So the Reverends recruited in-studio guests SORE EROS for an impromptu jam. With most of the 10+ in-studio guests moaning and playing their instruments erratically, we can all agree that this might be our most triumphant collaboration yet.

Sore Eros & The Reverends of Funk present:

From the Vault X

This installment of our illustrious From the Vault series finds Sweet Baby Lou hanging out with Bella’s Bartok after their last show performance. In this video, bassist Steve “The Wolfman” Torres shaves fellow bandmate Amory Drennan’s head in a shower stall. The entire happening is soundtracked by the band’s in studio performance of “The Strogaya Waltz.”

So enjoy this exclusive and very bizarre video.
