How do you like your rock & roll served up on a Wednesday night? Do you like it bluesy, soulful and groovy? If that's what your eardrums crave then The Wolf Den at Mohegan Sun Casino was the place to be. The London Souls from The City That Never Sleeps were the center stage attraction that was guaranteed to bring some sonic therapy for your soul. In the middle of the week it's unusual to go on a little trip, but when it's The London Souls—it's totally worth the expedition.

The London Souls

When The London Souls started showing their stuff on stage I was completely impressed with how smooth everything sounded, making it all look uniquely effortless. "Under Control" showcased ultimate syncopation with each one of the trio's voice sounding like it was from the heavens when they went in unison. The song also included a portion of The Neville Brothers' "Jungle Man" that was equally enjoyable to hear. "When I'm With You" had this 60's rock feel that exuded a heavy Cream & Beatles influence. "Steady Are You Ready?" had loud riffs resonating vintage bluesy rock that was timeless and right afterwards "Someday" was a cross between 70's heavy metal and mellow reggae, truly a multi-dimensional experience. Before I even realized what was happening, these guys when right into a rendition of The Who's "Magic Bus" and then into The Beatles' "Get Back", by this point I was in a state of pure amazement. Concluding a stupendous performance with "She's So Mad", the crowd was in a buzz and gave a loud applause. I'm definitely going to keep a keen eye on The London Souls and you should too, one of those diamonds in the rough that are bound to shine with musical beauty. The Wolf Den at Mohegan Sun always has pretty cool shows going on for free, so check out what they have happening next at http://mohegansun.com/entertainment/wolfden.html.
