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!

Bluzpik Media Group artist: Kat Riggins - In The Boys Club - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the ost recent release, In The Boys Club, from Kat Riggins, and its a dark, R&B soaked rocker. Opening with Try Try Again, Riggins blends a high stepping rhythm with repeating vocal theme to create a cool opener with slick guitar riffs by Josh Bowand. Traditional delta style blues, Troubles Away features some of the best vocals on the release complimented with solid slide resonator work by Bowand. Soul track, Hear Me is a smooth track with warm keyboard work by Darrell Raines, bass by George Caldwell and drums by Johnnie Hicks. I like the tension of this track and Haines' guitar solo is solid. Uptempo 2 stepper, Kitty Won't Scratch features vocal pairing with Albert Castiglia who also contributes a fleet fingered guitar solo. Very nice. Riggins and Hicks team up with Clay Goldstein on harp on rocker, Johnnie Walker creating a modern day Led Zep sound. Cool rocker. Funky, Live On, has a nice R&B flavor and solid vocal blending peppered with Goldstein's harp flavoring and flavorful guitar picking by Raines. Wrapping the release is A Girl In The Boys Club, a driving blues rocker with attitude. Solid bottom and solos by Raines and Goldstein maintain balance with Riggin's vocals.
