One of the busiest bands in town, Lionel the Jailbird, is quickly gaining momentum. Now with a weekly slot at Ruby Tuesday, there’s always a chance to catch this four-piece rock outfit in town. Between weekend performances and their slot at Ruby Tuesday, there’s no reason to miss them.
Though primarily a rock band, there’s a certain level of complexity found in their music. There are hot guitar licks dispersed all through the set, inspired often by the blues. They aren’t without peaks and valleys though. They can do the slow ballads just as well as loud-fast rock tunes, even incorporating an acoustic guitar at times.

A nice addition to an otherwise common instrumentation is the violin. Singer Dominique, who sounds like Janis Joplin, Grace Slick of the Jefferson Airplane and Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach combined, also wails on the the violin - which seems to absolutely weep whenever she picks it up. It’s a nice compliment to the sweet sounding, slower parts of the set in between the fiery riff-rock.
