See Our Shrine Show

LIVAMP archived video of yesterday's show at Shrine.  You can see the whole thing, almost as if you were sitting in the room on that cold, Harlem night.  See the set here.

We're In The Top Ten!

We've made the top ten on ReverbNation's NY Blues Charts.  The charts themselves are basically for fun, but the real honor is that we're up there with hard-ass-working blues bands like Jane Lee Hooker (love y'all!), The Tangiers Blues Band, and Dave Fields.  Company like that is pretty humbling.

Friday, The 20th!

We are back at the great, just-seedy-enough-to-foster-real-music LES venue, The Delancey.  We take the stage at the spritely hour of 7pm.  Come on out and get your night on the town started right!

Chapter 74

The Blues and Soul Show, out of the UK, recently featured our tune, "Where the Honey Goes," on Chapter 74 of their broadcast.  We're the second song in, after Dan Owen's absolutely smokin' version of "Little Red Rooster."

We are in some great company on this show too!  If you love blues gems which you might not have run across otherwise, go visit Jason Elliott's swanky abode.

By the way, Jason calls what we do "something a little bit different" and "more avant-garde blues."  Our music has never been described quite that way before, but we take both as very profound compliments.  We're trying to put a deeply personal spin on the blues--music we all grew up with--and that may lead to things sounding a bit, say, quirky.  But you can still call it blues!  And that means, to us, that we're getting somewhere.
