Description

The Dodge Brothers "That's Alright" was filmed exclusively for Liverpool International Music Festival. This was part of the ‘Music Migrations’- themed Commissions show, retracing key influential records coming to Liverpool from the U.S. after World War II, inspiring pioneering movements from Merseybeat to Doo Wop to Rock n’ Roll. Musically directed by Grammy award-winning producer Steve Levine and presented by BBC Radio 2’s Janice Long, the event welcomed a plethora of legendary, as well as emerging artists, who encapsulated these influences and who shared their own sounds. The Dodge Brothers showed the early influences of The Quarrymen, who later became The Beatles, by recording three songs as they would have been recorded in 1953 (live, in one take with no overdubs and no headphones) at Steve Levine's recording studio in Liverpool. Other special guests included Dave McCabe & the Ramifications, local chart toppers The Farm, Chris Difford of Squeeze, guitarist Ian Prowse, Liverpool native Natalie McCool, R&B singer Terri Walker, reggae crooner Christopher Ellis and LIMF Academy’s latest protege, Jalen Ngonda. The live performances were backed by an all-star band comprising of Paul Weller’s drummer, Steve White, bassist Martyn Campbell of the Lightning Seeds and The Waterboys’ Richard Naiff on keys. http://www.limfestival.com/line-up/routes-jukebox/ The recording session was filmed by Joe Campbell of Culture City TV. http://culturecitytv.co.uk/ http://www.dodgebrothers.co.uk
