My buddy Don Beyer and I are now making music the long-distance way.

I put together the initial tune with guitars, vocals and other stuff. Don adds his stellar bass playing, then engineers the final mix. So, here’s ‘OLD DOG – OLD TRICKS’…just some of my most favorite blues/rock tunes in the keys of A & E.

A blues and soul infused blend of moonshine and honey/
In early 2015, Gaslight Street stood at a familiar crossroads that every band comes to at one point or another. Their long time guitarist had left the band, and the quartet was reduced to three. They had a calendar full of dates, including a month long tour out to Colorado. They could have easily decided to stop and take a break, but Whitt Algar (keyboards/bass) decided he would simply combine his skills as bassist/keyboardist and keep the band rolling. He learned to play bass lines on the top organ while still playing the keys on the piano stacked underneath all in the matter of weeks. Stratton Moore (drums) and Campbell Brown (Guitar/Vocals) went to the woodshed with their band mate and forged a new sound. Soul, the backbone of their music, had become more prominent and Algar’s own songs were being introduced to the band. They continued their journey out west for a month long tour to Colorado and back. When they returned to their hometown a new band had been born.
In 2016 the band won the CPMA Blues Band of the Year and released “Two Years Gone”, the album they recorded in 2014 as the quartet. Touring had become more and more frequent and the band had discovered a cohesiveness from both the road and the stage they performed on. In the Summer and Fall of 2017 they recorded new tracks at Fairweather Studio (Charleston, SC) for their first studio album as the trio. Omar Colon (Owner/Engineer) and Brown are putting the final touches on the project in order to release the album by Summer of 2018.

Good Boys is our second Album’s title and the project we are working for a year: “We started like a cover-band; we use to play the great classic of the blues like Albert King, John Lee Hooker and the great songs of ’60s-’70s of Jimi Hendrix and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Over time we separated ourselves from emulation and embarked on the unpublished musical production. After 2 years from the first covers we have evolved a lot; our genre is evolving and moving away from the true blues and we are heading towards a more modern and energetic rock. But our roots are there and will always be there! The sounds learned by playing the great musicians of the last millennium have marked us in the unconscious and if we had never left them probably today we would not be here to compose unpublished music with so much pride and passion “.

11. MR P.C - 4:42

Musicians:
Dean Newton - Guitar, Vocals;
Jeff Barnes - Bass;
John Marcangelo - Drums.

If blues and booze go together like milk and cookies, then the Dean Newton Trio would be a perfect “pub band.” They’re from Cumbria in the United Kingdom, and boy, can they pack a wallop with a guitar. These three will “beat you, bash you, squish you, mash you, chew you up for brunch, and finish you off for dinner or lunch” (Attack of the Killer Tomatoes) with the sheer force of their shredding prowess. This is music to get drunk to, plain and simple. Out of eleven songs, ten are originals, full of the kind of voltage one needs on a Friday or Saturday night. Purists might say, “This is ALL rock!” Would they be wrong? There are no classic numbers here, and the blues rhythms find themselves submerged in the other genres presented, like R&R and funk. Nevertheless, front man Dean Newton has above-average vocals and clear diction. Tunes such as “What You’ve Got” add a semi-political twist to the powerhouse proceedings.
A graduate of the London College of Music, Dean has studied under some of the most highly-respected guitarists in the world. At the age of twenty-eight, he’s a highly in-demand “muso” and guitar teacher whose playing style is thoroughly postmodern, yet rooted in the traditions of blues, rock and jazz. Never one to stand still, he is always seeking out new sounds and concepts to flesh out his albums and push the proverbial envelope. Newton has been described as a virtuoso guitarist by many of his industry peers, and is also an endorsed spokesman for Tokai Guitars.
Drummer John Marcangelo and bassist Jeff Noble also have considerable experience in the blues/blues rock scene. Marcangelo’s greatest claim to fame is being a private student of legendary jazz drummer Philly Joe Jones. As for Noble, he’s been playing bass for over four decades and has toured worldwide with different ensembles and on cruise liners.
The following track combines keen songwriting and potent musicianship in a neat package.
Track 05: “What You’ve Got” – We all try to keep up with the Joneses, and it’s costing us: not only in our wallets, but in our souls as well. With a killer bassline by Jeff Noble and melodic guitar by Newton, nifty number five is a cautionary tale. “Well, you read it in the papers and you see it on the news. You’ll see it when you least expect, when you’re buying your new shoes. It’s all about what’s cool, and it’s all about what’s hot. Because it’s all about getting what you want instead of wanting what you’ve got.” Danceable and catchy, this one’s a winner for sure.
The Dean Newton Trio has put forth a notable debut that’s perfect to enjoy with potent potables!

12. Odd Mrs. Dodd - 3:28
13. Aengus of the Mines - 4:28

A heavy rock n' roll concept album about a serial killer who becomes haunted by the ghosts of her victims. ODD MRS DODD was well aware of her husband’s extra marital activities. A soft spoken, stoic person, she silently accepted her situation until the morning SHADY MR DODD returned home with intent to gather his things and leave her for another woman. This was the event that sent ODD MRS DODD over the edge. What she’d kept bottled inside for years exploded, invigorating her to brutally stab him to death. Prior to the murder, her social interactions were few to nonexistent, and she experienced life solely within the comfortable confines of her apartment walls. She was emboldened by the act of murdering her husband, and as a direct result found the confidence to venture out into the halls of the East Village BROWNSTONE in which she lived. Her goal was to meet her neighbors and form inspired friendships. What she discovered, however, was a building full of the kind of life, or lack thereof, that was a direct reflection of her former one. It was at this point she began mercy killing each and every inhabitant of the BROWNSTONE. But what dies in the BROWNSTONE can never leave the BROWNSTONE, so she’ll be haunted by the ghosts of her victims until she acquiesces to show herself the same brand of “mercy” she showed them.
BROWNSTONE is a rock n’roll horror event, a walk-through haunted house with a musical narrative. The listener will travel from apartment to apartment escorted by the NARRATOR (a guitar playing blues singer), and will meet all the haunted house's residents, experience their struggles, their untimely deaths, and their ultimately triumphant rebirths.

 4. Baby, Scratch My Back - 4:33
 5. I Just Wanna Make Love To You - 2:55
 6. St. James Infirmary - 6:03

Skeptics might claim that a band that releases two sets of traditional cover songs in rapid succession is merely biding time while waiting for real inspiration to come. Granted, there’s a certain validity in that theory, especially given the fact that retreads of popular standards are decidedly in vogue these days. Thank you, Paul McCartney, Rod Stewart, Van Morrison and all the other elders of that age who figure that being of senior status is reason enough to ignore the generation gap completely. As a result, any attempt to return to one’s roots seems a valid artistic indulgence, especially since it serves as a reminder that creativity often evolves from unexpected origins.
Why then, should Canada’s Whitehorse, the Polaris Prize-nominated husband and wife team of Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland, be any different? For one, they’re considerably younger than most of the artists that have gone this route. Secondly, they’re less known than the aforementioned artists that pursued that path. Happily then, this duo filters their intention through invention. Adept in both roots and rock, Doucet and McClelland are proficient enough to put their own spin on their selection. After all, they’ve done it not once, but twice, in the span of two successive releases.
Like its predecessor, Vol. 2 finds the pair offering an individual approach to archival blues and seminal soul, tapping arrangements that are consistently unexpected. Jimmy Reed’s “Baby, What You Want Me To do?” is considerably more subdued than the edgy approach that’s typically taken. Willie Dixon’s classic “I Just Wanna Make Love To You” is upbeat and effusive, practically breathless in its pent-up passion. They make that dark and dire Gospel song “John The Revelator” sound strangely seductive. Likewise, the timeless “St. James Infirmary” is so harsh and haunting, it effectively retools the song and takes it into an even deeper dimension. Released in the wake of their cheery holiday album A Whitehorse Winter Classic, The Northern South Vol. 2 offers further opportunity to fully explore Whitehorse’s diversity and dynamism. It’s anyone’s guess what they’ll do next.

10. Sweet As - 3:13
11. Summer Love - 4:06

High energy blues rocker Call Me Mildy's new dynamic album released in 2019. Featuring an eclectic span of blues, blues rock, reggae and dirty harp rock. Some pretty pretty songs abound in Haven't I Told You and Perfect Day. Regina Canada's Call Me Mildy is an engertic four piece blues rock band fronted by singer/songwriter Greg Mildenberger (Mildy.) The new album 'take a bite of this' is an eclectic and varied journey through modern alternative blues rock. There's high energy cuts like 'Runnin' and 'Why', which punch out jump blues at its best. One of Mildy's most popular tunes 'My Woman Left Me' features Mildy's raucous slide guitar playing and shows the influence of boogie blues. The ballad 'Haven't I Told You' is destined for greatness with its heartfelt lyrics, honeyed backing vocals and sincere lyrics. Meanwhile, 'Perfect Day' tells a story of a broken heart with a sublime track featuring slant harmonica and dire straits style guitar grooves. Mildy's song 'Where You Goin' is a gritty, dark look at humanity, featuring some of Mildy's dirtiest harp playing. And his fight song 'Meet Me in the Alley' conjures up visions of Irish Punk meshing with Canadian blues rock. 'Keep Love Movin' melts the southern rock fan's heart, while 'All I Need Is Your Love' grooves on guitar solos and a surprising melody. 'Sweet As' brings some silliness to the album, and 'Summer Love' finishes off this consistently good album with a smooth and happy reggae style tale of summer love. Call Me Mildy is fronted by Greg Mildenberger, who writes the songs as he sees them, if the song is good it doesn't have to fit into a tight blues box of songs. Mildy has performed at events with blues acts like Tommy Castro, Sonny Landreth, and Canada's roots/rock Big Sugar.

Bushwick Blooze Band's debut album released in 2019 with some great blues classics. Brother Dave on vocals guitar, with Chas Rio on bass and David Cornejo on drums.
Bushwick Blooze Band was formed in 2018 when Chas Rio (Brother Chas) decided it was time to (temporarily) stop trying to play jazz on upright bass and get serious about getting a rocking blues trio together. After one failed Craigslist attempt in pulling in a guitarist/bluesman he found Brother Dave, hidden away in Long Island, who had been perfecting his blues style over the decades and who was known for his screaming guitar solos. With the addition of David Cornejo (Brother David) - who brought his international musical training (from Peru via Barcelona) to the band - on the drums the band was up and running.

Bushwick Blooze Band is:
Brother Dave - Guitars, vocals, lap steel
Chas Rio - bass
David Cornejo - drums

Cryin' for the L Train was recorded in the Spring of 2018 at Big Orange Sheep Studios in Industry City in Brooklyn, NY and represents Bushwick Blooze Band love for rockin' blues.

Texan Rocky Athas started playing guitar and performing at neighbourhood gigs with school friend Stevie Ray Vaughan. By 23, Rocky Athas was honoured an inductee to Buddy Magazine's Texas Tornadoes as one of the ten best guitarists in Texas. The English rock band 'Thin Lizzy' wrote the song 'Cocky Rocky' after hearing Rocky play at Mother Blues in Dallas. Queen guitarist Brian May was so floored by Rocky's finger tapping style that he incorporated it on the next Queen album, revealing that it was the guitarist from Mother Blues who first introduced him to the style.
In the late 70's and early 80's Rocky was the creative vortex behind Lightning. Rocky then joined the legendary Black Oak Arkansas playing on the Ready As Hell and The Wild Bunch LPs. Rocky also worked as a session guitarist for Polygram records at Memphis Ardent Studios.
In 2002 Rocky recorded The Blues Berries with Buddy Miles from Jimi Hendrix's Band of Gypsy's and SRV's rhythm section of Chris Layton and Tommy Shannon.
Mega producer Jim Gaines produced The Rocky Athas Groups 2003 CD Miracle. Jim felt Rocky's talents should be showcased under his own name and Rocky formed his Texan band, The Rocky Athas Group, featuring vocalist Larry Samford.  In 2005 Rocky recorded Voodoo Moon, again produced by Jim Gaines. The Rocky Athas retrospective CD Lightning Strikes Twice was released in 2007. Currently Rocky is touring the world as lead guitarist for The John Mayall band.
Texas veteran and smoking gun guitarist Rocky Athas fits easily in the same league of guitar gods as his long-time friends Stevie Ray Vaughan and Eric Johnson.

This is an all original, instrumental album featuring over thirty vintage guitars played by the legendary "Texas Tornado".
When Rocky was asked by John Mayall, the iconic "Godfather of British Blues", to take the lead guitar role on his 2009 album, Tough, Rocky was honored. Being recognized for his guitar skill and asked to join forces with the creator of the legendary outfit, The Bluesbreakers, that featured a revolving cast of talented players including Eric Clapton, Peter Green, Jack Bruce, John McVie, Mick Fleetwood, and Mick Taylor, was exhilarating. Within weeks of the call from John Mayall, they were together in the studio working on Tough.
Rocky’s first album with John Mayall, Tough (Eagle Records) was reviewed by Guitar Player Magazine, which called Rocky "a veteran Texas gunslinger with a wicked tone and a thriving solo career of his own."
In fact, before joining Mayall, Rocky's first worldwide release Miracle was prompted by his friendship with Grammy Award-winning producer Jim Gaines (Santana, Steve Miller, Journey, Stevie Ray Vaughan), which was forged while working on The Bluesberries with Buddy Miles (Jimi Hendrix, Electric Flag and Carlos Santana). Rocky was honored that Jim, named Blues Producer of the Year in 2003, produced his solo albums.
At the beginning of his career, Rocky was the creative vortex behind Lightning, one of the biggest draws in Texas nightclub history opening for national acts. By the age of 23, the Oak Cliff, Texas native, was named one of the first and youngest, TEXAS TORNADOS in Buddy Magazine's now legendary list of Top Ten Guitarists. The list of Texas Tornados later went on to include Eric Johnson, Jimmie and Stevie Ray Vaughan, ZZtop's Billy Gibbons, and Johnny Winter.
After Lightning, Rocky moved on to be showcased as lead guitarist with national acts, including the southern rock one-of-a-kind Jim Dandy and Black Oak Arkansas writing/performing on "Ready As Hell" and "Wild Bunch" which were included on their greatest hits album. During his association with BOA, Rocky met drummer extraordinaire Johnnie Bolin, brother of Tommy Bolin (Deep Purple and James Gang). Johnnie and Rocky cemented a life-long bond as brothers. Rocky performed, toured, and recorded Tommy Bolin Tribute shows for Johnnie in support of the Tommy Bolin Archives Foundation with the amazing vocalist and bassist Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple and Trapeze).
Throughout his career, Rocky has been asked about his friendship with Stevie Ray Vaughan and is extremely proud of his Oak Cliff roots which he shares with Steve. You can open the pages of Stevie Ray Soul To Soul by Kerri Leigh and read Rocky's recollection of childhood memories.
Six years into the collaboration, Mayall's newest album, A Special Life, features stellar guitar performances by Rocky that prompted Neil Spencer of Uncut Magazine to highly praise the new work "...whose guitarist, Rocky Athas, recalls the young Eric Clapton."
With the mutual admiration society nurtured by thousands of miles on the road together rockin’ the blues around the world, Rocky is proud to stand next to John Mayall blazing a fresh, new, innovative sound with the veteran bluesman.

West Coast harpman and storyteller par excellence San Pedro Slim is back with his latest for Mojo King Records, this one entitled, “In Times Like These.”  It’s a set that’s guaranteed to help you get through today’s tough times, with a sometimes-biting, sometimes-humorous  look at folks livin’ day-to-day just to get by. Slim wrote all but one of the cuts herein, and he’s on harp and vocals, with Joe Conde on guitar, producer Kenny Huff on bass, Mark Vasapolli on drums, Mike Malone on keys, and the horn section of Lawrence White and Jorge Garcia. After a cool, gospel-radio station intro, Slim starts off with a swingin’ instrumental, “Down On Pacific,” as he busts out the big ol’ chromatic.  A cha-cha beat drives “Going To See Mr. Lee,” the man who’ll help you “leave your troubles behind” when you re-organize and “file a BK!”  Another tune about “workin’ hard for so little pay” is a sweet slow-groove titled “Low Pay Loser Blues,” with Joe’s twangy guitar and Mike’s acoustic piano adding to the “hard times” feel The horns get down to bidness on a cut written by Kenny Huff, the funk-filled strut of workin’ to keep a lover happy, “No Overtime.” We had two favorites, too.  Slim vows to “make next year better,” but, right now, it’s “Valentine’s Day At Motel 6,” set over a horn-driven, slow-dancin’-styled groove.  And, perhaps the set’s most humorous cut looks at the California jobless rate by way of a cool eight-bar, stop-time tale of “don’t call me unemployed–I’m Workin’ For The EDD!” San Pedro Slim writes about things he’s seen and stuff that permeates the daily news.  The country needs a stiff shot of good blues that’ll sho’ nuff make you feel better “In Times Like These.”  Until next time…Sheryl and Don Crow, The Nashville Blues Society.

Southbound, the upcoming blues-rock band based in London, are kicking up quite a storm. Bringing an exclusive take on British Blues, audiences are enthralled by the unique sounds and grooves that the band create on stage which has helped to propel their career forward. With inspirations drawing from blues, rock, jazz, funk and soul, Tom (vocals), Elliot (rhythm and lead guitar), Jordan (rhythm and lead guitar), Dan (bass) and Aaron (drums) each bring something distinctive to the table that could only be described as the sound of Southbound; it could be argued that their material, both in theme and performance, could only derive from a veteran of the music industry, however, this can be accredited to their hard work and passion for music. Whilst writing, the band draw from the sounds of greats such as Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, the Allman Brothers Band, B.B. King, and Eric Clapton but also from quite unorthodox artists like Santana, Jeff Beck, Gary Clark Jr and jazz-fusion band Snarky Puppy. When performing live, all these influences come together to create an unparalleled live experience that’s both entertaining and mesmerising.
