Sample press announcement
The Righteous Mothers use humor and their original tunes on contemporary topics such as: Supreme Court decisions, Palm Pilots, ice cream, domestic violence, and relationships, to reach people young and old, gay and straight, rich and poor. Their performances routinely elicit tears and laughter and effect audience members so personally that it is not unusual to hear comments such as “this is the best therapy I’ve had in years” and “I don’t remember the last time I laughed so hard.”
The Righteous Mothers arrange mind-blowing, intricate close harmonies backed by strong, lively and varied instrumentation, sprinkled with fun, off-the-wall choreography. An evening with The Righteous Mothers seamlessly weaves through the various genres, including folk, jazz, gospel, country, and good ol’ rock n’ roll.
