CD Reviews

Solid Effort!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Simply stated, this is real boogie blues. There are a lot of comparisons being made between the vocals of Preacher Boy and Tom Waits. As a long time Waits fan, I have to agree that the similarities are striking. However, those similarities cease at the vocal stage. The music put out by this band is pure party rockin blues. So, if you like gravel throat vocals and a good driving beat, look no further. This is a nice change from the traditional blues material being produced today. Blind Pig has a winner here!"
A cross between Tom Waits & Rev. Horton Heat

"This album showcases some fine lyrical work that is like Tom Waits mixed with current blues, but backed by a raw, fast paced band. Unique in stylings, tempo, and lyrics, this is not a late-night sleeper album...this is a party album! I had an opportunity to see Preacher Boy once and would recommend it if they're still playing in San Francisco."
