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!

Lightning In A Bottle Records artist: Chad Rupp & The Sugar Roots - The Devil Won't Get You - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, The Devil Won't Get You, from Chad Rupp & The Sugar Roots and it's a solid blues rocker. Opening with funky rocker, Even Money, Chad Rupp on lead vocal and guitar is upfront over a strong bass line by Timmer Blakely and Jimi Bott on drums. Cool organ work by Louis Pain and strong piano work by Brady T Goss really create a pocket for Rupp to solo which has a distinctive Dicky Betts feel. Strong opener. Joe-Mack McCarthy on trumpet and Scott Franklin on sax create a strong intro on this swinging blues with great guitar riffs throughout and highlighting Rupp's vocals. Franklin, McCarthy and Rupp trading riffs makes this track one of my favorites on the release. Leopard For Your Love is a potent shuffle a great start and stop vocal treatment's and stiff call and response vocal with Ruffs guitar. Up tempo shuffle, At The Candlelight Room is driven by aggressive drum rhythms by Bott and Rupp plays off his own vocal with excellent guitar retort. Pain on organ lays in a real nice organ solo and Rupp shows real nice chops on guitar. Wrapping the set is Tighten It Up with full horns by Franklin and McCarthy and tight bottom compliments of Bott and Blakley. With the addition of Andrew Matthew, Paula Bunion, TJ Wong and Bott on vocals, real nice solos from Goss, Rupp, Bott, Pain, and horn reinforcement punching up the end, this is an excellent closer.
