The Prohibitionists

Cincinnati, Ohio

Clearly, The Prohibitionists are referencing a Rock epoch that occurred a good two decades before the members’ births, which is certainly nothing new. But The Prohibitionists channel the authentic Blues obsession of The Stones, Animals, Pretty Things and Kinks as passionately as they respect the original sources. Most importantly, like the very best Garage/R&B soulsters in music history, they bring something blazingly original to their translation. That’s how a band goes from having influences to being one, and The Prohibitionists are well on their way.

You’ll Dig It If You Dig: Blues is the religion, the garage is the shrine, the songs are the hymns, the bands are the choirs. (Brian Baker)
