Rock and Roll. Its aggression and cathartic capabilities are unquestioned, and undoubtedly connected. Canadian rockers The Tea Party are a power trio with a melange of influences, from Led Zeppelin to The Doors to the exotic. And, they rock out about as well as any band ever has, with an aura of mystery and mysticism wafting around more traditional rock techniques.
This live performance of “Sister Awake” and “Winter Solstice,” essentially encapsulates the entirety of their singular oeuvre, and includes a bonus interlude of The Rolling Stones‘ “Paint it Black.” And, when all is said and done, it ROCKS.
The band has gotten back together in fits and starts over recent years, and has scheduled a handful of live shows.
