CD Reviews

High Impact Blues for The Next Millennium
(5 out of 5 stars)

"These four guy's have one of the tightest sounds it has been my pleasure to hear. The title track "Guess who's coming to dinner" will be a sure motavatier to get you on your feet. The entire album keeps your toes tapping and your heart pounding. I own both albums this group has put out. And, I have had the pleasure of seeing them perform on three seperate occasions. So, if you like the album (and you will) you will want to see these guy's in real life too. The sound and energy they put into their music leaves you feeling like your the one playing the blues. Howard's voice is captivating and makes you want to listen all night long. And not to take away from Dan, Rocco, and Jim's musical capablities. They put a beat out that will have you up and dancing before you know what has happend. So if you like listening or dancing to the blues this album is a must have and a band you got to see. This is one band that I hope will be around for a long long time. Now, if we could just get them to make a live recording life would be complete."
The Future Of Blues
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In the booklet of this CD, there is a picture of the band jamming with their "mentor" Buddy Guy and a complimentary quote from Guy taken out of an L.A. Times interview. As a Buddy Guy fanatic, I bought this CD because of his connection with the band. I'm glad I did. This group has the soul, heart and authenticity that makes a real "blues" band. But they also add in a little funk, r&b and good old fashioned high energy. This really is an extraordinary CD, with a lot of diversity (a slow blues tune followed by a funk tune, followed by an r&b song, etc., but all played with the fire and heart that goes into the best of blues music). A friend of mine saw 'em at the Long Beach Blues Fest where they stole the show (Buddy Guy, Otis Rush, and The Fabulous Thunderbirds were among the many artists on the bill). I can believe it. This album is recommended."
Best New Sound in Blues in 1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'm always looking for some new blues material, and this CD was exactly what I was looking for. The uniquely rocky, funky drive of this CD, combined with the powerful and compelling lyrics produce a formula which adds a spring to my step anytime I want to add some spice to the ambiance. I first encountered this band while out at a Chicago Blues nightclub, and was impressed enough with the band to buy their CD right on the spot. Rocco's lead guitar style was unique in the sense that he played a great deal more chordal patterns and "fat" sounds than is traditional amoung blues leads. The result is a full and nasty sound, powerful and biting. This is a must-have CD, and I predict very big things for these boys. Good luck to them and to the lucky blues lover who happens to stumble, as I did, across this great discovery."
