Eatin' beans and makin' love as long as I am able

I know this is a bold statement, but The Carolina Chocolate Drops were by far the most captivating band I have ever seen live. They sang originals, covers, and acapella with the kind of voices and sound that reverberates in your vertebrae. The most you can do while listening is either dance your pants off or stand wide-eyed, mouth agape. I looked around at one point and could not see a single person that wasn't smiling ear to ear. The music was uplifting and simply flawless. They even danced, blew into jugs, and did tricks with their instruments. I really can't find the words to describe this band. But if you ever see them, especially in an intimate setting like the Paradise, be ready to have a wonderful night's sleep afterwards. They will satisfy you down to your soul.
