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!

Lance Lopez - Live In NYC - New Release Review

I just received the most recent release, Live In NYC, from Lance Lopez and it's explosive. Opening with with boogie rocker, Come Back Home, guitarist/vocalist, Lance Lopez really gets the place hopping with Chris Reddan on drums and Mike Nunno on bass. With his steady, heavy handed blues rock guitar work this track rips. Lopez's aggressive guitar tone on On Hard Time, shows that he means business. With fluid blues riffs, overdriven rhythm guitar tone, solid bass work and tight drums, this is prime rock! Get Out And Walk, has a great opening riff bringing to mind Humble Pie at their best. You like the classic rock style when blues was king. This is it. Lopez avoids the temptation to overplay and with his excellent rock voice, Lopez has the stuff to balance his ripping guitar leads and Reddan and Nunno are not left behind. Super! Traveling Riverside Blues has a powerful lumbering swagger with strong vocals and drone double stops not unlike ZZ Top or Johnny Winter. At nearly 8 minutes, this is an excellent rocker with hot blues guitar riffs that absolutely kicks ass! Lowdown Ways is down and dirty, the way we like our blues (think "My Own Fault"). This track kick in at over 11 minutes so sit back and have some cold beverage ready cause it will make you sweat! Tell The Truth is a straight forward rocker with a super double timed bass riff and scorching guitar lead. Not Humble Pie but definite influences. I really like this style. Terrific! Wrapping the release is rocker El Paso Sugar, with it's Piedmont style blues intro played on electric guitar. The track develops into a swaggering butt kicker with an almost James Dewar feel. This release shows just how powerful Lopez and his band are and put them high on my see for 2016 list! Excellent!
