Rod Piazza returns along with the newly rechristened Mighty Flyers Blues Quartet, for the follow up to their ambitious Delta Groove debut "For The Chosen Who," on which the band was nominated and won a 2006 Blues Music Award for "Band of the Year." On their newest release Rod & Honey continue to demonstrate their life long passion for the blues by showcasing the interplay between Rod's stratospheric harp and Honey's blistering boogie woogie piano, further augmented by her left hand now doubling as the quartet's thundering bass. "ThrillVille" is the culmination of 40 years of honing and crafting this music - a heritage that began with the Dirty Blues Band and Bacon Fat, followed by the formation of the Chicago Flying Saucer Band, which ultimately gave birth to the Mighty Flyers. The result is an album that Rod says "...is one of the toughest and strongest records I've ever made."
They just get better!

"Rod Piazza and his wife, Honey, have been playing music together a long time. There has been various line ups of the Mighty Flyers over the years, but the music has always been top rate. They somehow keep the music fresh and invigorating, and never stale. They are real pros. As usual, they have an excellent guitar player on board. This time it's Dave Carvajal, as well as Dave Kida on drums. This band hits the groove from the first tune and never lets up. You won't be diappointed in this CD."

"the thrill in thrillville begins with the very first song and takes off from there on a wonderful blues journey. the west coast style always provides a well tuned group of musicians a chance to showcase their talents and love for playing the blues, led by legendary harmonica player, rod piazza. this is a disc that should always be close by a cd player for many listenings."
