Deadbeat Vultures are a Rock and Roll outfit who must be seen in action. With roots in Soul, Rockabilly and hoodlum swing, these young men have found "The Key" and want to let you in on it: Playing loud. Making friends. At the wheel, Elliot Maldonado's guitar sings truth. Shards of chiming tone set a perilous, shimmering pace. Heat is delivered by Mitch Cruz. His simmering rhythms laid above, pounded below and graced in between. Beats everywhere, like the nervous heart of "The Troublemaker" -- sheltering in the darkness of a doorway, cigarette, collar high, shoulders hunched, burning. And there are words. A glaring squint from the shadow, these eyes miss nothing. A voice snarls of things seen, battles won, hearts sieged, and knuckles and jaws cracked. Donny makes the Stand Up Bass rock a tremendous rumble, lacing it all together with a swinging bass line in deep-blue. A bass line so thick it's a rope. A blue so deep it's indigo. The music is action-plus. The songs build, build, build with bullying approach, holding formation until the lid blows on the whole dang situation. The players now unleashed, Deadbeat Vultures come at you with inexorable force -- dazzling, ecstatic solos, bass riffs blown hearty and hot, and pummeling percussion puts the cream on the pudding. Deadbeat Vultures will make you move. They'll make everyone on the dance floor shake and bang. And with all these bodies knocking about, you're going to get roughed up good. The whole goof of it is you'll be delighted, dazzled, charmed by the process. This organization cooks with soul. These are bruises you will dig. Leite Preto
