Review: Dance Hall Crashers

Dance Hall Crashers
““The Live Record””
(Pink & Black Records)

This live album record at The Troubadour in Hollywood really rocked out. It was hard to believe this was a live album.  The mix is terrific, the band is tight and the two female lead vocalists sing in perfect harmonies (usually singing a third off each other) through twenty-five songs. This ska meets punk band was impressive through and through. They’ve been around for over a decade and it definitely radiates through  their sound. The guitars pound in a thick, riff-rock switching to a thin, clean reggae groove. The rhythm section is strong with dynamic bass lines and  hard-core punk drum beats. High energy,  off the hook music that’s a must buy cd for anyone.
