Brooklyn Bowl, Brooklyn, NY 2.4.12 – Here is a photoset of a great unsigned band called Leroy Justice. I’ve known most of these guys and have been seeing/shooting them for the better part of the last ten years or so…and they just keep getting better and better. They are a band that has many faces, speeds and influences. They can bring the rock, they can bring the country and they can bring the softness. Bourbon rock. They’re such a tight band. Everyone knows their role and mesh so well together. Their fearless lead singer Jason is super charismatic and can sing his ass of and take you to a higher ground. The rhythm section lays a firm backbone while Sloan on keys adds all the right touches whether subtle or full on in your face. And lastly, the “new guy” Justin has just the right guitar chops to keep the band rockin and even melt your face at times.

It’s unfortunate that such a talented band like this remains unsigned while much of the crap that’s out there is just that.
