Here we have David Rosen and Sam Bey of The Parlor Mob accompanied by Mr. Giani Scalise of the Saclise fame unifying to form a three-piece version of The Black Jesuses. Unfortunately, Trinity and the Pope is no longer with us, but these videos will serve as a memory.
Thank you Asbury Rising for letting me work with you on creating these videos. Awesome music, friends, and a night at the bar is not a scenario many would consider work.
PS – Here is The Parlor Mob live at The Stone Pony
Not so fast. The next video is surely going to be great so hold up, wait a minute, let me drop some opinion in it. Side projects are always huge for bands (The Sounds Of Animals Fighting, The Prize Fighter Inferno, and I consider Young Love second to Recover), but for some reason I feel The Black Jesuses aren’t your average side project. They are considerably different than The Parlor Mob and can stand alone with their talent.
It was interesting to see them as a three-piece because as a two-piece they have that raw sound we all love from bands like The White Stripes. The addition of a bass player slightly adds a fuller sound and doesn’t take away from the minimalism. This shows a prospective of versatility with keys or more added later on.
Remember how I said this show was at Trinity and the Pope…just another reason why The Black Jesuses are prime for any venue. The musicians are talented enough that it doesn’t hurt to hear them while having drink, or give you that embarrassing hot feeling you get when someone else is embarrassing themselves. You know exactly what I am talking about. That girl who believes she can sing because she sounds like a nasally Britney Spears while singing karaoke is usually the reason for it. Anyway, whether barfront of Trinity, Porta National Park, or The Stone Pony, The Black Jesuses would kill it.
