JD & The Straight Shot Perform Springsteen's "Pink Cadillac"

JD & The Straight Shot gives ARTISTdirect an exclusive peek into the band's recent rehearsal at Sear Sound Studios in NYC! Watch JD & Straight Shot's bluesy/down-home rendition of "Pink Cadillac" by Bruce Springsteen.

Founded by frontman Jim Dolan, JD & The Straight released their fourth studio album Midnight Run last summer. The album is a finely crafted collection of New Orleans-flavored roots music, produced by Kevin Killen (U2, Peter Gabriel) at New York's famed Avatar Studios.

JD & The Straight Shot has toured with Joe Walsh and Don Henley and played with The Eagles, Allman Brothers Band, ZZ Top, Robert Randolph and more.

Dolan formed JD & The Straight Shot in 2000 with friends from the office. His day job is President and CEO of Cablevision and Executive Chairman of Madison Square Garden, Inc. where he also oversees New York sports teams such as the Knicks and the Rangers. As Relix Magazine explains, "JD & The Straight Shot is more than a businessman's vanity project-it's legitimate band that continues to evolve."

The band's creative nucleus is Dolan, guitarist Marc Copely (B.B. King), and guitarist Adam Levy (Norah Jones, Amos Lee) - this trio pens all the band's music and lyrics. Instrumentally indispensible is keyboardist Brian Mitchell (Bob Dylan, Levon Helm) who also adds harmonica and accordion to the sonic stew. Rounding out the band are some of pop music's finest session players, drummer Shawn Pelton (Rod Stewart, Pink, Daryl Hall, Buddy Guy), bassist Zev Katz (Aretha Franklin, Elton John), and violinist Lorenza Ponce (Sheryl Crow, Ben Folds, Bon Jovi).
