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!

Brand New Release From Hi Hat Records & Entertainment

Brand New Release From Hi Hat Records & Entertainment

Hot Roux “Stranger’s Blues”

               Louisiana flavored blues and swampy rock & roll. Musician and band leader Jerry McWorter comes from the somewhat rare tradition of “singing drummers” like Levon Helm, Sam Lay and Buddy Miles. Jerry is certainly steeped in the influences of his friend and hero Levon Helm and in the spirit of simple story telling blues.
                Hot Roux – Stranger’s Blues is a collection of well written original songs penned by Jerry and co-writer / bass player Brent Harding. Stranger’s Blues is a very organic and groove based record at its roots. All of the tracks were recorded “live in studio” with the aim of capturing the music as it lives and breathes. The tasty peppering of percussion and harmony vocals seasons it just right.

                Hot Roux is very well known in Southern California and has made a strong name as a rock solid rhythm section backing artists such as James Harman, Kim Wilson, Kenny Neal, Lynwood Slim, and countless performances with country guitar legend and music man, Albert Lee.

                Hot Roux often tours as a trio featuring the equally powerful guitar work of Ed Berghoff or Tommy Harkenrider. Both players have a unique stamp of originality and style. Also featured on Stranger’s Blues is the unmistakable guitar work of Franck Goldwasser on loan from “The Mannish Boys”. Franck’s musical contribution is as greasy and funky as it gets.

                Hot Roux – Stranger’s Blues. Served up on Hi Hat Records and Entertainment.

CDs & merchandise are available at Hi-Hat Entertainment

“Jerry McWorter and his band, Hot Roux, trust me… they are shakin’ the place up. The CD “Stranger’s Blues” hit me like a point blank shotgun blast… I dig every track! Tommy Harkenrider, Franck Goldwasser and Ed Berghoff all make serious guitar statements during the seemingly few minutes this disk plays, before you start it again. I would say just go ahead and buy it, you can thank me later”

-          James Harman, Award Winning Blues Artist

“A formidable band in the blues and roots world. Hot Roux meets all expectations of its moniker: a roux is a tasty sauce and Stranger’s Blues serves up a smorgasbord of ten lively tunes from straight blues to rockabilly to a nice Cajun flavoring.”

-          Steve Daniels, Big City Blues

“Jerry & his boys have created one of the best roots bands in So Cal… Watch out for Hot Roux’s new CD!”

-          Pete Anderson, Multi-Platinum Producer/Guitarist
