Mid-last year Minneapolis based Sonny Knight, a 68 year old retired truck driver, and his band of twenty-something to thirty-something year old musicians released a live double album entitled, Sonny Knight And The Lakers Do It Live. The record is a loving return to the height of live Rhythm and Blues with Knight and his band perfectly capturing the uproarious energy and rebellious musicianship of an era long gone. Leading up to recording Do It Live, a year of steady touring through the US and Europe allowed the group to create a seamless set, mixing songs from their critically-acclaimed debut studio album, I’m Still Here, with a couple covers of classic soul songs from their native Minneapolis. Hoping to add to the rich history of live albums rather than producing something merely derivative, they set out to reconstruct the ephemeral experience of a live concert and earn a permanent place on your record shelf. — From sonnyknight.com
