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!

Diana Rein & Papermoon Gypsys Perform at Real Blues Festival 7

SoCal's Coolest New Blues-Rock Band!


Sunday, Aug. 14, 4 pm - COACH HOUSE, San Juan Capistrano

"Diana Rein and the Papermoon Gypsys brought a rollicking show to the Blue Beet. Diana's bluesy voice and Kenny 'Big Daddy' Williams' blistering lead guitar on their version of Jimi Hendrix' classic "Stone Free"  showed why they're one of the hottest new groups on the scene today. Rein's guitar propels the music with a rocking sound, the interplay of her guitar carrying both rhythm and some excellent solo work. All told, Diana Rein and the Papermoon Gypsys provide a hard driving blues sound that's hard to beat"                         - Ed Simon, LOS ANGELES BEAT

                     About...Diana Rein & Papermoon Gypsys

   The new group is co-led by vocalists-guitarists, Diana Rein and Kenny "Big Daddy" Williams, along with Joe Dolci on bass and Rich Smith on drums. Rein, also known as the "Six-String Siren," has just released a new album, Long Road (Rude Mood Records). "Rein proves herself multi-talented by not only writing, recording, and producing Long Road, she also sings and plays lead, bass, and rhythm guitars, " writes National Blues Review. On Long Road, Rein - a big Stevie Ray Vaughan  fan who moved to Southern California from a hotbed of the Blues, Chicago - displays a sharp tongue, driving blues-based guitar, and melodic solos. Conversely, Williams is a longtime SoCal musician who, in addition to Papermoon Gypsys, also fronts OC-based blues-rock trio, Bluespower. "Big Daddy," as Williams is commonly called, is also co-owner of Kenny's Music in Dana Point in addition to the Host of the weekly "Laguna Blues" radio show every Friday night on KX93.5 FM. "Big Daddy is one of those guitarists whose showmanship comes naturally," writes Ed Simon of the Los Angeles Beat
