Live Review & Picture Book: Elliott BROOD, Sad Daddy at Maxine’s on April 14

By Sarah Spencer

Outside it was a dark and stormy night, complete with deadly lightning and hail, but, on April 14 at Maxine’s Pub in downtown Hot Springs, Ark. it was all clear for a thunderous, acoustic show inside. The ample and anxious crowd was ready for the music to begin. At a little after 9 p.m., the “lite” version of the rustic blues and country inspired band, Sad Daddy, whose self-induced hibernation has long been felt this winter at Maxine’s, took their places on stage. Arkansas’ own favorite sons, singer/songwriter, Brian Martin, with his blue-eyed soul and gritty growl on vocals, acoustic guitar, harmonica, kazoo, and percussion along with singer/songwriter, Joe Sundell, with his unique and unmistakeably feel good vocals, playing banjo along with his own blues harp were welcomed back with open arms. Notably missing was the star bassist and singer/songwriter Melissa Carper who normally slaps the upright bass for the trio.

Q&A with Elliott BROOD at Maxine’s in Hot Springs, Ark.

By Sarah Spencer.

Canadian roots-rock band, Elliott BROOD sat down with TA Live’s Sarah Spencer on Thursday, April 14 at Maxine’s in downtown Hot Springs, Ark. for an impromptu interview before their show.

Welcome back to Maxine’s. Thank you for being here. I’d like to ask you guys first of all where did the name Elliott BROOD come from?

Mark: This question actually gets asked all the time but, nobody’s ever printed it. Back in the day I used to play kind of solo so it’s just kind of a name that I played under that came from a baseball movie called The Natural. There’s this femme fatal character in the movie that tries to become famous by killing off famous stars and her name was Harriett Brood* and I just really loved the way she said her name, “Harriett, Harriett Brood.” But, I wasn’t going to play under a female name so it would be Elliott, Elliot Brood. And that’s where it came from. Read more about Q&A with Elliott BROOD at Maxine’s in Hot Springs, Ark.
