Mike Farris & the Roseland Rhythm Revue

When: Sat., April 10, 8 p.m. 2010

Anyone who's ever been within shouting distance of a gospel tent knows that salvation songs need not be hushed and solemn. Belting it out is a time-tested way to spread the Word. Even when Mike Farris, former lead howler of the Screamin' Cheetah Wheelies, changed direction stylistically and spiritually, he didn't abandon the volume and thrust of rock 'n' roll. With the horn-sporting Roseland Rhythm Revue, however, it's soul-revue-style intensity that shifts things into overdrive. Whether reviving a traditional gospel number, sharing a like-minded original or dipping into The Staple Singers songbook, Farris delivers as if all souls in the room, his included, depend on it. —Rick Cornell
