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!

     Head Honchos' play smokin' Chicago blues imbued with elements of rock. The band is also a father/son affair - formed by guitarist Rocco Calipari Sr. (who is also a member of noted longtime Chicago band, Howard and the White Boys) and his son, Rocco Calipari Jr.   
   "With their debut release, the Head Honchos' demonstrate a high level of musical maturity and provide a truly enjoyable album from their cover of the Freddie King standard "Going Down"  until the final note on the seventh and last track, "99 1/2 Won't Do," wrote Blues Rock Review in a recent review of the group's eponymous self-titled debut disc.   

   In just over two years together as a working band, Head Honchos' have garnered positive reviews for their self-titled debut release in publications both far (Blues Matters and Metalliville in the U.K.) and near (Blues Source; Vintage Guitar; Chicago Examiner; Bluesrockers; Barrelhouse Blues; Southland Blues; BMans Blues Report; more).  The band are about to record the follow-up to their debut, tentatively titled "Come Strong."     
                                          Head Honchos': Fiery Chicago Blues-Rock. 

"WHO ARE THESE GUYS? Original and soul-pounding Blues at its best. I have seldom heard a Blues-Rock band with so much power! This is hard rockin' blues at its best...I've been waiting for's like getting kicked in the gut and saying thanks...really powerful backup and spin-tingling, terrifying, aggressive guitar playing is the new deal here. I am not going to compare this CD with anybody's CD. You just have to hear it. This is ground-breaking Blues."                                                                 BLUES SOURCE
"Wow! From the opening track, "Goin' Down," this disc had our attention! From there however, things only got better, the next song, "Lucky's Train," had us grooving and enjoying the juicy guitar riffs and righteous vocals - and surprise - it's an original. There are no disappointments on this CD. Every track sparkles with electricity, great guitar, stellar engineering and production, and wonderful vocals. In short, it's a home run...out of the park!"                 BARRELHOUSE BLUES  If you like what I’m doing, Like ---Bman’s Blues Report--- Facebook Page!
