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!

Charlie Wheeler Band - Blues Karma and the Kitchen Sink - New Release Review

I just received the newest release (October 7, 2016), Blues Karma and the Kitchen Sink, from Charlie Wheeler Band and it's an interesting mix of contemporary music. Opening with pop rocker, People Keep On Talkin', Charlie Wheeler who leads on vocal and guitar sets the pace and Dave Fink and Rad Akers hold down the bottom on bass and drums respectively. Tight. On Shiver, I really like the plucky bass lines of Fink on this spacey rocker. One Of These Days has a little bit of country flare with traces of the Doobies. Certain radio track with a good hook and snappy drums. One of my favorite tracks on the release, Flicker Away, has a heavy footed rock beat with it's feet in the blues. With solid vocals, a good hook and slick guitar work, this track is tops. Promise of Daylight is another track that catches my attention with hot guitar riffs and a real nice bass line. Wheeler's vocals are spot on giving this track multi station appeal. Another blues rocker, Love You The Same, has a real nice recurring guitar riff in the style of Jimi. Wrapping the release is Butterfly, a pop rocker with a slight funky back beat. Wheeler's guitar riffs are rowdy yet polished and with his certain lead vocals and tight bottom, this track is a super closer.
