classic rock hooks with alternative rock melodies, The
Tom Collins is not only a drink your people favored way
back when, but a rootsy rock trio from Georgia. Fran
Capitanelli ably fronts the band on vocals and guitar,
and on tunes like Hot and Cold the band’s
sound seems appropriate for a juke-box on a Saturday night
at the roadhouse.
There are more than a few licks and
forays into classic Southern rock territory etched by bands
like Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Outlaws. But the tunes overall
are more contemporary sounding with bright vocals and faster
tempos. And with rock fans now spanning generations, mom
and dad might enjoy The Tom Collins as much as the kids,
and vice versa.
Track: Track 5, “Talk
You Down ”
