Vocalist - Ellie Carr on "Sinful"
Guest Horn section: Carlos Ortiz and Jule Boyer

Tampa based singer/songwriter Alex Lopez explains the meaning behind the title of his fourth album, “Yours Truly, Me,” as “a simple collection of songs, no theme or concept, except to create the best music possible.” The guitarist grew up in the rock ‘n’ roll heartland of Cleveland Ohio and settled in Florida after college, where he has honed his skills as an entertainer, soaking up all the influences that meld together in the sunshine state from Latin to Southern Rock, smooth jazz and R&B. Backed by his touring band, The Xpress, featuring Kenny Hoye on keyboards, Steve Roberts on bass and drummer David Nunez, Lopez moves easily from British blues to soul and jazzy pop, on eleven original tracks and an inspired cover of a Texas blues rock classic. The opening track, ‘Woe Is Me,’ introduces us to the gritty tenor vocals and expressive guitar work from Lopez on a tale of tough love that starts out with a shifting current but ends on smooth sailing guitar outro. Next up the band reinvents a ZZ Top standard ‘Tush,’ as a sophisticated urban blues, swapping the shuffle for a modern funk rock groove peppered with hot Hammond B3. Lopez then picks up an acoustic to bring in the first of what he tags as redux tracks that have been reworked from a previous recording, delivering ‘Take Me Back Home’ as an easy-going blues. The tempo jumps up for the pumping rocker ‘I’m A Working Man,’ and a hot go-go beat opens the Motown inspired ‘I’m A Losing It’ that is nicely spiced up by hot horn hits from Carlos Ortiz and Jule Boyer. Lopez gets passionate for the emotional ballad ‘I Love You Blues,’ featuring fine piano work from Hoye. Lopez channels Richie Valens on the Chicano rock ‘n’ roll boogie ‘I Can’t Stop,’ then his guitar channels Eric Clapton on the sentimental ‘I Will Miss You.’  The lovely acoustic sonnet, ‘Chase My Blues Away,’ is slipped into the set for a quick palette cleanser before Lopez and crew play out the Latin pop fused ‘All I Really Want Is You.’ Special guest Elle Carr joins Lopez for the duet ‘Sinful,’ bringing her sultry alto from Somerset to the project, perfectly playing the foil to Lopez on the sizzling tango that should prove to be the highlight of the album. The horn section joins in again on ‘Cheating Blues,’ adding spice and fire to the Chicano rock party finale. Alex Lopez and The Xpress have much to be proud of on this strong fourth release, “Yours Truly, Me,” taking another bold step forward on their mission to make a positive impact on people’s
lives through their music.

Blues with a Rocking, Country feel, both acoustic and electric with guest appearances by Danny Gatton and Steve Rusin, harmonica player extraordinaire. Hard to pin down, style wise but enjoyable throughout.
Dave Kyle is releasing his first CD after a career of playing on other people's recordings. He began pitching songs to publishers and labels in Nashville in 1973 and worked as a background singer and guitarist for some of the industry's most well known artists. Having played on Nashville's Saturday Morning Show on WSMV-TV, the local NBC affiliate, he worked with such greats as Chet Atkins, Lonnie Mack, Duane Eddy, Charlie McCoy, Boots Randolph, Tracy Nelson, Jack Green and several other Nashville luminaries.
He played and sang live with artist, Chet Atkins, Kix Brooks, James Burton, Paulette Carlson (Highway 101), Marty Haggard, Billy Dean, Wolfman Jack, the Drifters, Del Reeves to name just a few. He has opened for many other famous acts including, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Leroy Parnell, Lacey J. Dalton, Gary Morris, Three Dog Night, Jimmy C. Newman and Skeeter Davis to name a few. His singing landed him on recordings with several well known artists, Alan Jackson, Vince Gill, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Marty Stuart, Garth Brooks and nearly every recording artist in Nashville for a TV show on the Grand Ol' Opry, which he also performed on with Johnny Russell.
As a sideline, Dave wrote for Vintage Guitar magazine where he interviewed Chet Atkins, Danny Gatton, Gregg Allman, Marty Stuart, Roy Rogers, Waylon Jennings, Carl Perkins, Scotty Moore as well as several other well known guitarists and guitar makers. At the same time he began selling vintage musical instruments as Dave Kyle Guitars. There, he was chosen to help Waylon Jennings sell off his inventory at the time Jennings stopped touring. He was also consigned one of George Harrison's guitars and John Lennon's Melatron.
After moving from Nashville to Southern California in 2005 he dropped out of the business for a time until his friend and harmonica player extraordinaire, Steve Rusin talked him into putting this album together with his help. Kyle gathered together what he considered his best demos from his time pitching songs and recorded some all new material, giving the title, "Looking Back" a true meaning. Containing 16 songs, all original except for one with guitar great, Danny Gatton and another older recording of his '70s band Kid Lizard, these songs show the progression of his writing, singing and playing over a career spanning some forty years.

Derrin Nauendorf - Skin Of The Earth

10. Sometime - 2:10

Determined to make something of his music career, five years ago Derrin Nauendorf arrived at Heathrow airport from Australia with a guitar, ?1200 and several extra layers of clothing. Derrin spent those next five years playing anywhere that would have him, sleeping on floors and living on tuna baguettes. Things looked up when he purchased an old Post Office van, which then became his home for the next six months. More importantly, it allowed him to get gigs, and essentially his music, out into the real depths of the UK. Over 1000 gigs later, Derrin finds himself with fans not only in England, but Scotland, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, Germany, France and his native Australia too. He has since managed to sell over 12,000 albums from the back of that van, and become a bit of a hit on the festival circuit too. This new release looks set to be even bigger. Derrin's songwriting skills have taken him up several levels, his voice has more depth and soul than ever before, and his repertoire has expanded to encompass ballads, mid tempo songs and upbeat tracks.

British Blues/Rock with a creative spin and an international band/After doing many tours in Poland, a set of circumstances led me to be introduced to Arthur Malik and Jacek Chruscinski in a car park in Grodkow, Poland. They were to be a pick up band for a gig that night in Chojnow, near Legnica. We found that we gelled as people and as a band. The gig didn’t exactly go to plan but the audience loved it. We joined forces for another tour later that year in Germany, Switzerland and Austria where a natural chemistry developed on stage. We did more work in Poland, Czech Republic and Luxembourg and it was decided
to do the next KTB album together. This is my 12th album and I wanted to be creative , yet stay true to my roots. I wanted to be myself, yet in some way pay homage to those who have influenced me. A challenge but I think this has been achieved. It was recorded by Adam Drzewiecki over 3 days in DMP Studios in Krakow and about two weeks or so at Density Music in the UK. Produced: Keith Thompson - Density Music Mixed and mastered by David Pickering Pick at FFG Studios, UK. All songs are written by Keith Thompson, except: “Backwater Blues”, Bessie Smith (MPL UK Publishing) and “Hesitation Blues” Trad arr. By Keith Thompson.

"Blues guitarist/songwriter Cyril Lance's debut album, "Stranger in My House," a completely DIY project, was one of the best blues albums of 2002. "Live From the Outskirts" is another DIY affair that was recorded in three days at a trio of North Carolina rock venues. Lance's band members provide a major thrill in and of themselves: Johnny Neel (vocals, piano), Kelly Pace (drums), Chris Carroll (bass, vocals), Matt Jenson (B3) and Dave McCracken (B3). Lance and his mates offer up a collection of tunes notable not only for their incredible power but also for the variety of the groove. From the soul-fired vibe of Neel's vocal on "Blues Ain't Nothing" to the formidable cover of John Scofield's "Chank" to the deep blues of "Same Thing," the sheer musicianship of this disc matches the best any blues label has to offer. Lance wrote half the tunes himself, and his guitar playing is virtuosity defined."

 8. Cherry - 5:15
 9. I Was Wrong - 3:30

The cover of Overdrive Live! screams the album title in large capitalized letters, together with the promise that the album was “Recorded live to tape – No dubs – No BS!”. It also depicts a photograph of the band in concert, showing a drummer, bassist and two guitarists.  This, in conjunction with the band’s name, might lead one to expect a live recording featuring a series of long, loud and overwrought guitar solos all hung on the bones of a series of heavy rock songs calling themselves blues. Well, appearances can often be deceptive and everyone knows the dangers of making judgements based on first impressions. Overdrive Live! is the third album by the Danish band, The Blues Overdrive, recorded live at one of Denmark’s largest festivals, Smukfest, in 2016. It’s also a fine recording of a very impressive blues band in concert.Comprising Martin Olsen on vocals and rhythm guitar, Andreas Andersen on lead guitar, Brother Thomas Birck on bass and Louisian Bolter on drums, The Blues Overdrive formed in 2001 but did not release their first album in 2012.  Overdrive Live! includes four tracks from their debut album, two tracks from their 2015 sophomore effort, Clinch!, a new track (“Everybody Was Rocking”) and two covers. Olsen wrote all the songs except Bob Dylan’s “High Water (For Charley Patton)” and the psychedelic rock of The Chambers Brothers’ 1968 hit “You Got The Power To Turn Me On.” The latter song was often performed by Danish blues singer/guitarist/songwriter, Peter Thorup, to whose influence The Blues Overdrive also pay tribute on “Mr. 16 Tons (Blues For Thorup)”. Thorup died in 2007 but he was immensely influential in Denmark (and in the UK, where his version of Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love” was used as the them tune to the Top of The Pops TV show throughout the 1970s and 1980s). Dylan’s “High Water” is re-imagined as a funky blues-rock workout, while “Death On The Highway”, which was originally performed on Clinch! as a mid-paced shuffle, now becomes an upbeat blues-rock groove that actually improves the song materially. The band tend to favor relatively short and punchy numbers, with only the threatening slow blues of “Ball & Chain” and the poppy soul-blues of “Cherry” extending past the five minute mark. This restraint and control serves the album well, with the focus very much on the song rather than the soloist.  This is not to denigrate Andersen at all, who delivers a series of memorably melodic solos (including a wry nod to “Baby Please Don’t Go” in his solo in “Mr. 16 Tons” and a bow to Jimmie Vaughan in “Three Time Lover” and Albert Collins in “I Was Wrong”). As a record of the band’s live prowess, Overdrive Live! is an impressive and highly enjoyable statement. Produced by The Blues Overdrive themselves and mastered by Bolter, Overdrive Live! captures the energy and vitality of a top-drawer live performance but combines it with a warm-yet-crystalline clarity many studio albums would envy. As an introduction to The Blues Overdrive, you couldn’t start at a better place than Overdrive Live!  Great stuff.

Various styles of American blues music/About the songs: All of the original songs began with the words first. On an electronic keyboard I experimented with pre-programmed rhythms and with tempo. I either played the notes over the rhythm myself or utilized a function that allows you to change and loop chords with the rhythm by pressing just one key. Michael quickly adapted each song for the guitar and we ditched my keyboard versions. He also added lead guitar, bass, electronic drums and keyboard on all of the finished tracks. Needless to say these songs would have never been recorded had I not met this multi instrumentalist who is also a music teacher and an experienced studio engineer. Thank you Michael Taylor.

Guitar oriented. Eclectic stylings, influenced by such greats as: Roy Buchannan, Gary Moore, John Mclaughlin, Santana, Frank Zappa and Larry Carlton. The music is a byproduct of the great musicians that work with me.
At the age of 13 I heard songs by "Cream" with Eric Clapton and new that I wanted to be able to make those sounds come to life on a guitar. I listened to: Eric Clapton, Carlos Santana, B.B. King, Albert King, Albert Collins and began to develop my own style. I acquired an interest in Jazz, with such influences as; Larry Carlton, John Mclaughlin and Larry Coryell. I would say that I have fused the Blues/Jazz/Rock genres into my own thing. I certainly consider my guitar as a tool by which I can express my emotions and ideas. I enjoy creating music with energy and power while keeping in mind the need for musical congruity. The key to my ability to articulate my musical ideas, is utilizing the great musicians that I work with along with having a great recording engineer.

Ed Sullivan was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York.  As a young man, he spent countless hours sharpening his talent on guitar and harmonica, while seeing too many of his friends fall victim of drugs and gang wars. For Sullivan, music was an escape, but he says, “it was really what saved me from the street and from a choice that could have ruined my life." Inspiration from some of the great names of the blues and rockabilly – Slim Harpo, Albert Collins, Danny Gatton and Link Wray – influenced Sullivan’s style, and still hold a special place in his list of musical gods. Sullivan is a pillar of the New York music scene. He was a regular player at Manny's Car Wash, the former temple of the blues in New York. He also played at numerous festivals organized in the city and he was one of the founding members of Rebel Rockers, a rockabilily group featuring original Stray Cats member, Gary Setzer.  Sullivan’s latest record, Run ToThe Border, produced by Popa Chubby, (as was his first record titled, Big), features a return to the sources of blues and guitars more sharp-edged than ever. Big Ed Sullivan was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame as a Great Blues Artist on December 4, 2011

The Reverend Blues Revival -
The Reverend  David Ashcroft has long had a dream of a Blues Revival to inspire and move souls through music. “Preaching the blues…” He says. “Hands in the air spirit walking blues…”. David spent 17yrs as pastor/preacher. “…peace, love and FREEDOM!!!” He belts out in cadence… Moving the spirit so the body has GOT to groove, is the magic of these performances. This passion for the blue notes is what drove and developed The Reverend and his Blues Revival. While performing with ElectroGroov Band he reconnected with the amazing Kathy Kidd.
Kathy Kidd has been singing her goose bump raising full tones and pure notes since early childhood in school, church and socially. She was gigging around Fayetteville in the early 80’s when the late Rick Lancaster took her under wing. By the end of the 80’s Kathy was down in New Orleans, LA studying guitar with Marti Jacobs who is a Guitar Institute of Technology bass player. Jacobs taught guitar chops but showed the bass line as well. Kathy found the bass lines were her home. While in New Orleans studying she was also performing with various artists including Sidney Snow. When her mother fell ill, Kathy moved back to Northwest Arkansas and there met Steve Glasspool. As a renowned bass player from Beaumont, TX, Glasspool continued to teach her bass and they performed as a duo around Beaumont for several years. Kathy moved to Hot Springs and has played in the band ElectroGroov for a couple years in the Hot Springs Area and beyond. The Blues is Kathy’s true home. The inception of  KK & The Reverend Blues Revival was inevitable! The music they both play and love is the Blues. Each one knew they would be working on this project together. It was simply a matter of when…
The Reverend David Ashcroft moves your soul through his keyboard expressions and well-trained vocal contributions. The Rev’s earliest influence was his uncle Alvin Maloch who was a 1940s/50s professional jazz pianist. David’s mother shared the big band and orchestra music she loved and his big brother planted the roots that brought him to the Blues. At 11 he began to take classical piano. School choir and voice training were going on while studying harmonica. In his early 20’s David worked for Capital Keyboards demonstrating organs throughout the state. This is where he met Dale Rich. Dale was a retired jazz Hammond Organ player and concert organist for the Lowrey Organ Company. Mr. Rich embraced and mentored David in jazz and blues organ. Variety is the spice of life they say and this musician embraced the philosophy. David was involved with groups that did full acoustic (Acoustic Fusion), all originals (Tri-Chord), as well as old Rhythm & Blues (Urban City Band). Later he played piano, organ and harmonica with Steve Hester and DeJaa Vodoo who graced the stage at Miglewood Hall in Memphis, TN; House of Blues in Dallas, TX and Juanita’s in Little Rock, AR. This group opened for the likes of Samantha Fish, Eric Gale, Lynard Skynard and Johnny Winter. Supporting Blues in Arkansas is a passion for David. In January of 2018 David performed with guitarist Kenny Mann and the band Cheap Thrills at the 2018 IBC in Memphis.
Kenny Mann’s high energy and excitement are evident as both lead guitar and vocalist. Kenny’s parents gave him a pivotal gift when he was 12 years old. It was a Blues Series guitar and he hasn’t been without a guitar since. He joined the first band (Hair Metal) at barely 15 and by 18 had found the Blues. In 2001 the Guitar Alliance website (on-line guitar lessons) was launched as a way to blend his internet marketing experience with a love for guitar. As the lead singer and guitarist for Spinning Jenny he spent several years playing all across the southern US. Kenny’s voice makes the listener feel every emotion and want to hear more. The blues is a natural home for this talented musician. This was evident when he performed with Cheap Thrills representing the Arkansas River Blues Society at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN. Kenny and The Rev certainly represented with this band for Arkansas during their two performances at Hard Rock Cafe on Beale Street.  Kenny continued as lead vocals/guitar for Adult Summer Camp 2018. Kenny was the front man for the band Cheap Thrills when they played the Historic Arlington Hotel nearly exclusively through the Summer of 2018.
These three decided it was time. With Kenny, Kathy and The Rev….KK & The Reverend Blues Revival had begun!

Son nom est Personne. La presse s'en amuse lorsqu'elle titre un article sur le plus connu des bluesman francais. Pourtant Paul Personne est devenu quelqu'un. Au fil des galeres, de la vie difficile d'un musicien desireux de faire ce qu'il aime, loin des diktats des maisons de disques, il a su construire une carriere d'artiste authentique. Paul Personne est ne un 27 decembre a Argenteuil et passe une partie de son enfance a Houilles. Son pere est ouvrier et joue quelquefois de l'harmonica. Ses parents achetent pour lui un accordeon a un boulanger voisin. Mais cet instrument ne plait pas vraiment au jeune garcon. C'est en fait sa grande soeur qui va le recuperer. Lui, c'est plutot la batterie qui le tente. Il en bricole une et commence ainsi ses premiers pas de musicien amateur.
Paul decouvre a la radio la musique qui lui "botte" avec Eddy Mitchell et Johnny Hallyday. Il joue aussi un peu de guitare inspire sans doute par l'arrivee des groupes de la vague anglaise : Beatles - Stones - Kings - Animals etc... Ses parents demenagent aux Mureaux...

12. You Gotta Leave - 5:00

One of the greatest gifts that the art of music carries within, it is that one doesn't necessarily need to be a true connoisseur of a particular genre to be able to love a record, as long as the aforementioned record speaks, in some ways, to those listening to it.When said music is drenched as well with strong melodies and harmonies, packed with superb arrangements and sang soulfully with passion, power and honesty, it is impossible not to fall in love with it for anybody. Someone that has fully reached this artistic target, it is 2016 Blues Music Award Winner singer/songwriter Billy Price, through his new album due to be released on 2nd August via Gulf Coast Records and called Dog Eat Dog. Price's new album, produced once again by Christoffer "Kid" Andersen, who worked as well with the New Jersey-born singer on the 2018's previous studio album called Reckoning, sees the artist achieving new heights of class and maturity through a record that can be considered, undoubtedly, his most ambitious and inspired album to date. The 12 tracks included in Dog Eat Dog are a serious treat for any music fans all over the world. Through the extraordinary layers of Memphis Soul, Blues and R&B created by Price's studio musicians, that includes a gigantic A-List of talented sidemen like Jerry Jemmott on bass, Alex Pettersen on drums, Andersen Himself on guitars plus various instruments, Jim Pugh on keys, Jack Sanford and Eric Spaulding, respectively on baritone and tenor sax, John Halblieb on trumpet plus many more Special Guests, the artist born William Pollak showcases everything that you may possibly expect from a singer, in terms of power, depth and delivery's quality. BIly Price, who, let's not forget, will be 70 years of age later this year, is a true joy for the heart and soul to listen to, throughout the whole of the record. His vocal takes on both Otis Rush's Same Old Heartaches and My Love Will Never Die are strong, convincing and, at the same time, respectful of the arrangements of the original versions. Still, delivered with impressive and soulful style. Having said that, most of the new songs part of the new album are equally breathtaking and uplifting. The album's opener Working On Your Chain Gang is a marvelous blend of Blues, R&B and Soul, executed by Price and his musicians with true sonic magnificence, thanks to its rich, fresh and opulent sound twinned with Price's charming vocals.
Listening to Price's music feels like peeling one of the most succulent orange off the tree of music. While tunes like All Night Long Cafe', Toxicity and Remnants reveal all the swagger and the vocal charisma of a superb singer and performer like Price, then you get songs like More Than I Needed or Walk Back In, revealing the smoother side of Price's highly impressive vocal style and adding, at the same time, even more intensity and emotional power to an already exquisite body of work from one of the true, real last Soul Men left in the music business. Dog Eat Dog is the ultimate musical bridge between the sounds of Chicago and Memphis of the 60's and the 70's and the contemporary ones, built and structured in the most solid, elegant and stylistically sophisticated way by Billy Price, one of the very few left torchbearers of the last four decades of Soul, Blues and R&B.

Chicago blues meets Baton Rouge blues in this first effort by Blues Master Guitarist Tommy Grills produced by Kenny Neal Tommy “Bluz” Grills grew up in the Rochester, NY, area exposed to some of the top Jazz, Blues and Folk Artists while working at his father’s nightclub “The Nugget” during the late 60s to early 70s. Greats like Miles Davis, John Hammond, Freddie King, Harry Chapin, John Prine, Steve Goodman,Bobby Whitlock and many more played there. While they were all huge influencers on Tommy, it was the BB King crossover classic “The Thrill Is Gone” that sealed his love of Blues. As he says, “It was the vocal-like quality of BB’s guitar – he could make it cry.” Tommy met and played with James Cotton’s band in 1977. He was offered a spot in the band but had to decline at that time for personal reasons. Around the same time period, Tommy met and played with Robert JR Lockwood and met Albert Collins . Those three were his biggest influencers. Shortly after, during the late 70s, he formed his first Blues Band, playing inner city bars and local venues around the Rochester area. In 1982, Tommy played two shows with Albert King. Following that, he reconnected with James Cotton and toured with him throughout the Northeast and Canada until James had to stop touring due to health reasons. In 1993, Tommy moved to Phoenix and formed another Blues Band, the Tommy Grills Band. He immediately entered them into the Phoenix Blues Showdown. There were over 15 local bands entered in that competition and even though they had not yet played a formal gig, Tommy’s band won first place and was sent to Memphis to participate in the Blues Competition. That would be the first of four times Tommy has won that honor, each time with a different band.In 1999, when AZ singing legend Big Pete Pearson came out of retirement and moved back to Phoenix from Maine, he called on Tommy to join his band. They had many years of pleasure working together and in 2001, recorded the CD “One More Drink” on Blue Witch Records. During his time with Big Pete, he played with many of the Blues greats such as Nappy Brown (at his last Rhythm Room appearance), Joe Houston, Harmonica Fats, Bernie Pearl,Tom also opened shows for Duke Robillard, James Cotton, Savoy Brown, Robert Cray, Albert King, Matt “Guitar” Murphy, tom has also done shows with Joe Beard, Raful and son Kenny Neal. AZ Artists Tommy has performed with include Big Pete Pearson, Chico Chism, Chief Schabuttie Gilliame, Tommy Dukes. This recording fills a dream of recording in Baton Rouge with the Neal Brothers Gralin,Darnell, Red and Kenny Neal. Tom had met and played with Noel Neal in the James Cotton Big Band and thru him met and played with the Patriarch of the family Raful Neal. I would like to personally thank Kenny Neal for his guidance and harp playing during the sessions at Brookstown Studios Baton Rouge.

Pfaffenhofen (kc) Bei?ende Gitarren, stampfende Beats, mitrei?ende Grooves - wer auf erlesene Klassiker und Eigenkompositionen in authentischer Blues-Manier steht, der ist hier gut aufgehoben: Unter dem Titel "We call it Blues" stellt der Ingolstadter Gitarren-Guru, Sanger und Bandleader Jorg Klein heute, Freitag, auf der Intakt-Musikbuhne sein brandneues Album "Angry Road" vor - und tritt bei diesem "Fast-Heimspiel" erneut den Beweis an, wie vielfaltig die Facetten von "Mutter Blues" sein konnen. Als hervorragender Gitarrist hat sich der langjahrige Dozent am Pfaffenhofener Intakt Musikinstut uberregional langst besten Ruf verschafft und ist deutschlandweit bekannt - spatestens durch seine YouTube-Erfolge mit dem Crash-Kurs fur Gitarre.  Im Dezember erhielt er in Siegen den Zweiten Preis des Deutschen Rock- und Popmusikpreises in der Kategorie "Bester Gitarrist". Mit seiner sympathischen Art auf der Buhne versteht er es, Publikum und Mitmusiker gleicherma?en zu bezaubern. Nun gastiert Klein nach zuletzt Auftritten in ganz Deutschland, aber auch in Italien oder Rumanien, mit seiner Band "We call it Blues" neuerlich in Pfaffenhofen. Neben ihm sind an diesem Abend Christian "Krischan" Saal an den Keyboards, Christopher "Locke" Bayer am Bass sowie Markus "More" Maier an den Drums zu horen.  Die Songs auf der neuen Scheibe "Angry Road" erzahlen von echten und erfundenen Geschichten aus dem Leben des Schanzer Gitarrenhelden.
Das Feeling reicht dabei von flippig uber tieftraurig bis hin zu ironischem Textmaterial. Musikalisch ist ebenso ein weites Spektrum abgedeckt: Einflusse von Rock, Funk, Hardrock und sogar Swing geben der Scheibe ihr besonderes Flair. Mit der Garantie fur exzellenten Live-Sound darf man sich bei der Prasentation dieses Albums jedenfalls - wie schon bei seinen letzten Auftritten vor Pfaffenhofener Publikum - auch diesmal wieder auf einen musikalisch gehaltvollen und unterhaltsamen Abend freuen.

There are three musicians with very different musical roots in a band, thus there is an interesting mix of styles. The songs are arranged primarily, as it is best for the song without having to fit into a conventional rock or blues cliche

"Sweet Thing" is the first single and title track of Moonshine Society's second album, written by band leader Black Betty and featuring blistering solos by BMA award-winning harmonica player Jason Ricci and Blues Hall of Fame guitarist Joe Poppen. Moonshine Society gives a big nod to Aesop’s theory that we’re known by the company we keep. So while staking claim to lofty Music Land real estate of their own with a searing, cutting-edge blend of blues, soul, rock and R&B, they continue to rack up powerhouse stripes rubbing elbows with the best. Johnny Winter, Gov’t Mule, Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi, Tower of Power, John Mayall, Roomful of Blues, John Mayer and Ron Holloway count among the legends the band and its members have accompanied and opened for, not to mention other greats as Tab Benoit, George Clinton and the Funkadelic, Danny Gatton and Samantha Fish.Moonshine Society is the offspring of three promising young music scholars who came together at Boston’s renown Berklee College of Music. Of like minds and musical passions, they united in 2009 to create their own brand of soulful blues, roots rock and old-school R&B–if a fundamental definition is actually required. In truth, they teamed to craft their own formula of music that speaks to the soul and defies the labels of traditional musical confines. The trio sealed their pact one moonlit night in the Anacostia Delta, where then and there, their name became written in the stars. They were to be Moonshine Society. Little did they know on that fateful night that they were buckled in on a launching pad set to rocket them at dizzying speed to performance destinations of their wildest dreams throughout the US and the world. In retrospect, though, it’s little wonder considering the band’s composition of killer talent, now four-plus strong. Leading the troupe is impassioned, soulful singer and songwriter Black Betty, who has shared the stage with such musical greats as Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks and Jack Pearson of Allman Brothers fame, Susan Tedeschi of the Tedeschi Trucks band and Jimmy Vivino from “Late Night with Conan O’Brien”. Part vamp and part glamour girl, she is all-commanding in her on-stage deliveries and becomes pure sorceress spellbinding audiences with her searing hot vocals. To quote from her sizzlingly seductive rendition of “Fever” –what a lovely way to burn.
