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!

Severn Records artist: Big Joe and the Dynaflows - Rockhouse Party - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Rockhouse Party, from Big Joe and the Dynaflows and it's super. Opening with super shuffle, Driving Wheel, Big Joe Maher on lead vocal and drums sets the pace with Tom Mookie Brill on bass, Kevin McKendree on keys, and Yates McKendree and Robert Frahm on guitars. A low slung blues rocker, this track is an excellent opener. Excellent guitar phrasing, coupled with powerful lead vocals on So Mean To Me makes it a real standout. Brill takes the lead vocal on slot on Eight Men and Four Women and his vocals are out of sight. This track, with warm key backing by Kevin, and vocal backing by Erin Coburn is excellent! Guitar shuffle, Overdrive is an excellent showcase for the McKendrees with nice phrasing and great pace. Uptempo Go With The Flow, is a real toe tapper with hot riffs and solid vocals. On Vibrate, a rockabilly romp, guitar flurry and stylized  vocals give this track high power. Wrapping the release is easy flowing, slow blues, Two Years of Torture. Big Joe's vocals are sweet and Kevin's piano work super. Rich lead guitar lines and chords give the track nice depth. This is a real nice closer for a surprisingly good release.
