I look forward to seeing Steamboat Soul live. I heard them live on WWUH, a Hartford radio station, and was much impressed with their energetic, musical performance. I downloaded their Steamboat Soul album and enjoy all the songs. I look forward to their upcoming release in January which they played several cuts from on air that day.

Imagine yourself relaxing on a steamboat as it lazily floats down the Mississippi River all the way to The Big Easy. Suddenly, the band strikes up a tune, music fills the air and everyone is on their feet, clapping, dancing and singing along.
Welcome to the world of Roosevelt Dime, a five-piece, Brooklyn, N.Y.-based band that blends elements of acoustic jug-band blues, classic New Orleans soul and neo-folk to create an original sound best described as Kings County Steamboat Soul. The band’s nontraditional lineup — consisting of banjo, electric and washtub basses, percussion, trumpet and woodwinds — and seamless mixture of musical genres has been described as "a perpetual crowd-pleaser" by the New York Times. Now, the group is poised for a breakthrough with its new album Steamboat Soul.
So hop aboard the S.S. Rosie and get ready for the ride of a lifetime!
