Live@5 at the Arts & Science Center for Southeast Arkansas will feature Angels & Animals June 7 from 5-7 p.m.
Angels and Animal released their debut CD “Songs of the Savage Land” in 2012. Based in the Blues, the work features many musical styles and is graced by many different local artists as well as a few international musicians. It is indeed a varied collection of music and talent.
Angels and Animals exists as a nuecleus of Jimmy Lynn on Bass Guitar sharing vocal duties with Theresa Lynn. Charles Gage plays drums, and Dan Sokoloski plays Guitar. They are joined by Robert Coleman on Piano and Hammond Organ with Tyndall Jackson on Lead Guitar.
Robert “Frisbee” Coleman did the Arrangements for several songs on the CD. Frisbee has played for Johnny Jones, Piano man for Chuck Berry, and Bobby Keys, Sax man for The Rolling Stones. He is currently Entertainment director for Ernie Biggs Piano Bar in Little Rock, and still travels exstensively to play.
Tyndall is a Berkley Graduate, and has worked with many greats including Steve Vai and David Lee Roth. He records and tours widely with his band Mojo Depot. Tyndall currently plays guitar for Touch, A Grateful Dead Tribute with Robert Coleman and Jimmy Lynn. Jimmy has over 30 years experience in the music buisness. Recently leaving a touring act with seven tours of Europe behind him, Jimmy founded Angels and Animals to concentrate on original material.
The name Angels and Animals is taken from a song title by a band called “Its a Beautiful Day”. Most of Angels and Animals original material is written by Jimmy or Theresa Lynn.
While the live show consists of a large portion of the album, the band likes to present material that reveals their love for the roots of today’s music. Included in the show are renditions of songs by Etta James, Billie Holiday, and Koko Taylor.
Live jazz, blues and rock & roll 5-7 p.m. the first Friday of each month! (No Live@5 in January & July due to holidays.) The cost of the evening is $5 for members and $10 for non-members.
Live@5 is sponsored by M.K. Distributors
