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!

Dee Miller Band - Leopard Print Dress - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Leopard Print Dress, by Dee Miller Band and it a mover. Opening with swinging boogie, Hot And Sweaty, Dee Miller takes the lead on vocal with Craig Clark on vocal and guitar, Eric Meyer on bass and vocal, Jesse Mueller on smoking hot keys and Mike DuBois on drums. Cool opener. A cover of the Eagles, Take It To The Limit,is a surprise with just a slight rework of the original arrangement but with exceptional gospel styling to the vocals and key piano accents by John Pinckaers giving the track real oomph. Excellent. Rocker, Leopard Print Dress has a really strong drive that will force you into a dancing groove. Mueller leads on piano boogie Back In The Saddle with Miller stepping back, still providing lead vocal but giving center stage to Mueller, Steve Clarke on sax and Kevin Nord on trumpet. Soul track, Last Two Dollars is another of my favorites on the release with great feel. Exceptional lead vocal and guitar on this track really stand tall. I love not only the funky beat but the smoldering organ work of Mueller and the sweet guitar soloing of Craig Clark on Black Cat Bone. Wrapping the release is Steppin', a deep rooted blues track along the lines of Tobacco Road and Miller really gives it a workout. This is a solid release from an indie band.
