If you didn’t snag your copy of his new album on JUMP UP on his 2011 USA tour, it’s time to do so now! ITALY’s top traditional ska/reggae artist returns – MR T BONE’s soulful lyrics and big trombone often is compared to Germany’s DR RING DING, but he truly is a unique singer, instrumentalist, and bandleader whose YOUNG LIONS return for 14 tracks of rootsy ska, early reggae, and funky rock steady. Fans of THE SLACKERS totally love the YOUNG LIONS’ tight groove, and after the recent Chicago show a close friend of mine said he reminded him of a cross between LOUIS PRIMA and DENNIS BROWN! Now that’s an amazing compliment indeed!
