"Listening to Brian Lindsay’s sound, you get the sense that his musical
coming-of-age arrived at about the same time as Bryan Adams. Big rock anthems. Or
you can imagine him ripping the cellophane off of a brand-new vinyl copy of Bruce
Springsteen’s Darkness on the Edge of Town and, halfway through side one realizing:
This is what I want to sound like when I grow up.
Now all grown up, Lindsay celebrates the release of his excellent new CD, The Monkey,
The Tango and the Boogaloo, at 9:30 p.m. Friday at Abilene Bar & Lounge, 153
Liberty Pole Way. The Springsteen comparisons aren’t new to Lindsay. His 2005
album, The Crossing, drew similar responses. That collection’s highlight,
the achingly torn “East Side of the River,” a love story of the Genesee

But quite frankly, if you’re working some well-defined turf, echoes of Springsteen
sure beats Ted Nugent." Jeff Spevak, DemocratandChronicle.com
record company is going to have to front me another copy of Brian Lindsay's "The
Monkey, The Tango, and the Boogaloo," because I ate the first one. No shit, I got
done with the preliminary spin, smeared some peanut butter on it and ate it. Good
records call to mind comparisons and metaphors, but only the truly great ones can
be called delicious. Lindsay is one of my favorite singers of the hardcore troubadour
ilk and he comes out thundering on this new album's first track — and my new
fave — "What Does Love Mean To You?" like a runaway tractor. "The Bully" is
a tres cool tug-o-war between Jersey blue-eyed soul and straight-up rock 'n' roll.
"Everyday" is a classic example of urban Americana; a "just right" blend of red
clay and asphalt. "Seven Days Seven Nights" with its snake shake and voodoo is a
new harder rockin' side to Lindsay, I've only, up to this point, heard live. The
man even gets down with a pretty piano ballad toward the end of the affair with

of Rochester recently released his third album, The Monkey, The Tango, and The Boogaloo
under GFL music record company. The album dropped in late May and caused quite a
stir in Upstate New York. Frank De Blase mentioned this album in Rochester City
newspaper. “This is a work of art I highly recommend you spend some time with.
In fact get two, one to share with a friend”. Blasé complimented.
Lindsay’s band has made appearances at Rochester’s Lilac Festival, Party
in the Park series, and The Bands on the Bricks series and Canandaigua Music &
Arts Festival. They performed on the main stage at 4-day Oswego Harbor Festival
when they opened for Herman’s Hermits Pete Noone.
The Monkey, The Tango, and The Boogaloo opens up with the track “What Does
Love Mean to You?” The song has a soulful vibe but with the hard guitar riffs
and Brian’s old school rock voice; the song is a hit for any classic rock
n roll fan." Carly Knaszak, Upstate Live
