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!

Scott Weis Band - Simmer Me Down - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Simmer Me Down, by Scott Weis Band and it's a great blues rocker. Opening with Pride And Soul, a strong foot stomper with country and gospel influences, SWB sounds great. With Weis on lead vocal and guitar and Cindy Mizelle on backing vocals this track is smoking. Backed by Robert Kopee on bass, Roger Voss on drums and John Ginty on keys this track is tight. All Over Again is a great blues track with a bouncy beat but lots of grit. Weis' guitar playing isn't highly technical but it is high octane and emotional. Excellent track. Issac Hayes' soul track, When Something Is Wrong With My Baby gets just a little more blues heat giving Weis a great venue to solo on guitar  and his style and emotion is terrific. Saved is a super blues rocker with loose guitar work that works really nicely over a complex drum and percussion (Bashiri Johnson) work. Very cool. Wrapping the release is Transcendence has more of a jam framework along the lines of an eastern pattern and Allman or Trucks execution. Strong closer for a really nice release.

SCOTT WEIS BAND - Mike Packer correspondent

So let's groove back to the days when rock music had freedom, the days of The Fillmore, when rock was pure and inovative and the musicality was key. Let us now say we have The Scott Weis Band.
The Scott Weis Band is Scott Weis (guitar-vocals), Todd Lake (bass) and Dave Becker on drums. Scott and his crew raise the level of blues and rock with their high energy infused style blending a little Memphis soul to set you musically free. They have been gaining friends and fans across the country one step at a time.

The Scott Weis Band as shared the stage with many of the greats such as BB King,, Buddy Guy, Robert Cray and have done numerous gigs as support act for Blues Traveler. John Popper of Blues Traveler says about The Scott Weis Band " This band smokes and has a ton of soul that will rock your world ". If you enjoy killer guitar like I do you will love them. This band is good!!!!
