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!

American Showplace Music artist: Biscuit Miller and the Mix - Chicken Grease - New release review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Chicken Grease, from Biscuit Miller and the Mix and it's a cool mix of blues, funk and soul. Opening with Here Kitty Kitty, a cool R&B track with a potent bass line by Miller who also has the lead on vocal, backed by Doctor Love on drums, Bobby B Wilson on guitar and Alex "Southside" Smith on guitar and John Ginty riding high on B3 and electric piano. Super opener. Lap steel master, Marcus Randolph sits in on 609, adding his special sauce. A driving rocker with an firm bass line, this track keeps the heat on with great vocals, and tight work from Ginty, Wilson and Smith. Title track, Chicken Grease, is so funky you can smell it. Miller really works the bass and his vocal phrasing is perfect. With a cool interplay between Wilson, Smith and Randolph, this track is hot! R&B track, Watching You is smooth as silk with warm vocals by Miller and just the right bottom and nice backing vocals by Love, Wilson and Smith. Dripping blues number, Creeping, nicely features Miller's lead vocal skills and with clear, round guitar tones, and clever phrasing, this track sets a very nice blues frame. Wrapping the release is Get Ready with a fluid funk feel. Ginty and Miller set up an excellent bottom and with cool vocal teaming, this is a funky cool closer.

Big O Records artist: Joseph Veloz - Offerings - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release (July 15, 2017), Offerings, from Joseph Veloz and it's terrific! Opening with Just Jammin', Veloz shows his heavy fusion influences with terrific bass lines and excellent beat. Shawn Kellerman really manages the electric guitar and Jim Alfredson on keys and Andrew "Blaze" Thomas rounds out this terrific band for this smokin' hot opener! Biscuit Miller joins on vocal on Eddie Kirkland's Good Good Day. Super backing by Alfredson, Thomas, Kellerman and Veloz give this track a nice warmth. On funky, Mules For Biles (Blues For Miles) is a really nice track with thick bass work and clean guitar lead by Erich Goebel and rich organ work by Alfredson making this one of my favorites on the release. Excellent!   Lucky Peterson joins on lead vocal on Jukin' and Shakin', and hot funky (Tower of Power like) track driven by the excellent bass work of Veloz with Ray Podhornik on trumpet, David Rodenburg on sax and blazing hot guitar soloing by Kellerman. He Loves Me (God's Promise) is a really nice jazz pop track with a super melody. Featuring nice key work from Jim David, and cool bass lead from Veloz, this is a cool track.  Greg Nagy takes the mic on I Like Me Better When I'm With You, a smooth R&B number. Also adding his guitar signature to the track and with Scott Veenstra, a solid radio track. Dolly Parton's Jolene maintains much of the original character featuring Jennifer Westwood on lead vocal and particularly nice slide work from Kellerman. Dylan Dunbar steps up with a nicely articulated lead guiitar solo and John Lee's piano work adds nicely. Wrapping the release is a cover of Prince's Kiss. Veloz really works the bass over giving this track a hot bottom and lead vocal is handled by Joey Spina's soulful self. Alfredson's organ work really adds nicely to the overall track and Kellerman lays out another nice guitar solo but it's Veloz who cuts loose in this track and takes it for a nice ride. Super closer.

Sex Machine - Biscuit Miller



He sat in with Anthony Gomes when he was an up and comer in Chicago. After a few sessions, he asked Biscuit to join the band full time. He played with Anthony for 5 years. They recorded 5 CDs: Unity, Sweet String and Soul, Long Way Home, Music is the Medicine, and Live at the Double Door. We toured a LOT - over 250 shows a year in the US and overseas. It was a great time and it helped bring together a big fan base for Anthony!

Now living in Indianapolis, IN, Biscuit is encouraged to once again pursue his dream of artistic independence and of fronting his own band. The decision was made to revisit an old recipe from the past, stir up a brand new flavorful mix of funk, blues, and old style rock-n-roll soul.





Biscuit Miller and The Mix are once again on the road



and ready to bring a smorgasbord of fun to your party.



What’s better than a bowlful of soulful funky blues stew?



A piping hot Biscuit, of course!!
