CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

@New Blues Revolution @At House Of Blues @CD Release Party: Tweet That!


   (Hollywood) - In a music world where seemingly every band tries to be trendy, New Blues Revolution are transcendent. Where other groups feel a huge sense of accomplishment for playing one show a week, NBR are the Ernie Banks of the Blues - they prefer to play two gigs (often in the same day!). Where most bands pick a sound and stick to it come hell or high water, NBR willingly criss-cross the boundaries of blues, rock, soul and jazz with their music. And don't even get me started on the colorful character who fronts New Blues Revolution, Bill Grisolia. When they made Bill, they truly broke the mold!

   Don't take my word for it: Come see (and hear) for yourself when New Blues Revolution celebrate their new record, Revolution #9, with a CD Release Party on Saturday, April 6 at the House of Blues (Crossroads Room), 8430 W. Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood. 7-10 p.m. No cover. Special food and drink deals (ask your waiter/waitress for details). Info: (323) 848-5316 or This band is sheer aural fun! Did we mention they were nominated for "Musical Group of the Year" for 2012 by the Los Angeles Music Awards?

   Our friends in the media have said things like "at the House of Blues (front person) Bill channeled Jim Morrison" (All Access Magazine); "(guitarist Chap Cooper is) the last great  blues guitarist" (L.A. Music Examiner); and "one of the very best bands in L.A." (The Whiskey). Believe me, NBR (and their publicist) are very grateful for these laudits; but what really makes this band tick is when those in attendance at one of their unpredictable/ crazy/sexy/cool shows leaves not only hot and sweaty, but with a HUGE grin on their face!

   Here's NBR putting their unique spin on Screamin' Jay Hawkins' "I Put A Spell On You."
