Take one part Uncle Tupelo, add in a dash of Old Crow Medicine Show, sprinkle a liberal dose of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, and round it out with a healthy measure of the The Beatles and Cheap Trick, and you’ll be close to nailing down the formula for Marin County’s Last Call Troubadours.
Organically formed after a songwriting club saw more promise than anticipated, Last Call Troubadours is the brainchild of longtime artists Barry Blum and Tom Holmes. With support from fellow musicians and songwriters Tom Huebner and Ric Wilson rounding out the lineup, the collective delivers a rousing blend of Americana-flavored roots rock on their self titled debut.
Following that elusive Muse led Blum in particular to a project called “Rock the Ages,” a senior’s chorus. When Blum came along, the group of thirty-plus individuals, whose median age rounds out at 85 was floundering. But with Blum’s guidance, the chorale is now belting out soulful classics by The Who, The Rolling Stones, and The Pussycat Dolls, proving that rock ‘n’ roll knows no boundaries.
“Music is the great equalizer, taking age or infirmity out of the equation,” shares Holmes. “It brings joy through a level that’s deeper than just the spoken word.”
And the music of the Last Call Troubadours does just that, delivering rocking jams and soulful messages that connect with listeners mind, body, and soul.
