The Dangling Success has just released their follow up CD to "City Life," which broke onto the top 40 of the Smooth Indie Charts. The new CD is titled, "Down on Houston."
The Dangling Success is the ultimate Groove/R&B/Smooth Jazz
band that can only be described as “an aphrodisiac for the spirit.”
Five seasoned musicians with varied backgrounds got together
to play music with the kind of soul that moves not only your feet,
but your spirit too!
“… their live shows are events to behold,” says Smoothjazz.com .
They put on a high energy show. Their sax and guitar player are
known for their showmanship, frequently dancing with their audience.
Traveling with the band is always an adventure, like the time Paul packed his drums into a strangers van in Harlem, thankfully realizing it at the last minute before his drums drove away forever. Then there is Dr. Sax and his Einstein-like, technical explanation of the travel of sound. Check out their video documenting their trip to the Unicity Festival in Maryland. It's on their Video page. There you can also watch a video of their song "City Life."
One thing is clear; the fun the band members have on stage is
contagious, and the audience is quick to join in.
These veteran musicians have been making music for years with
acts like the Isley Brothers, Don Mclean, The Shirelles, John
Platania, Bernard Purdie and Guilherme Franco. Locally you've
heard them with the Phantoms, the Big Smoothies, Flashback, and
the Little Scotty and the Knockouts Jam Band. But you have never
heard them like this. The dangling success is mesmerizing,
intoxicating and electrifying! Otherwise, the backgrounds of the band are as follows, they have a Polish guy, an Irish guy, an African guy, an Italian and a Hungarian.
