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!

Bo & The Bluesdrivers - Self Titled - New Release Review

I just received the newest self titled release from Bo & the Bluesdrivers and it's quite entertaining. Opening with Out On The Streets, a straight ahead blues rocker, Bo takes total command on vocals and guitar. His stinging guitar tone and slashing riffs give the track a nice bite. Ass, Gas or Grass, a boogie track with cool double stops and a smooth driving bass line from Brian "Chewy" James and tight drumming from J J Garcia really digs a nice groove. Easy paced, Sea Song, is an interesting guitar exploration on a simple theme, not unlike some of the Dickie Betts runs of days gone. Very nice. Walkin' In The Park has a very distinctive contemporary Allman Brothers sound with a jazz rock feel. It's an interesting play on a familiar theme that should bode well for the Bluesdrivers. Chillin' also has a southern rock feel but a little jazzier, say Les Dudek. This is a cool track with fluid guitar riffs and a breezy melody. This is a cool first outing for Bo & the Bluesdrivers and should garner them significantly more attention.
