Men at Large

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andrew Hamilton
Cleveland natives Jason Champion and Dave Tolliver are Men at Large. The hefty young men are an electric act live, and producer Gerald LeVert along with a handful of co-producers effectively captured that heat. LeVert incorporates comedy, hip-hop, rap, urban and soul on a blue-plate selection of songs. It opens with a comedy skit, where LeVert is looking for the two overweight lovers.
