Aaron Williams & The Hoodoo

Aaron Williams & The Hoodoo "Sophmore Jinx? With their new CD 10:49, Aaron Williams & The Hoodoo prove
that phrase is just a myth! From the opening track "Boom Boom" to the
sentimental ode to Cadillac Joe (Aaron's dad) to the rowdy Devil's
Playground and every track in between, this cd means business. Ten tracks
that will propel this power trio right into the midst of the blues greats.
This CD is a must have for any blues lover, from the serious blues junkie
to the new blues listener, 10:49 will thrill them all."

Broken Arrow Blues Band

Broken Arrow Blues Band- No Time To Waste

Broken Arrow Blues Band's new cd "No Time To Waste" is an amazing cd that
grabs ahold of you from the first note and doesn't let go even when you've
listened to the last song.
Shadowhawk Ellis (Vocals & Percussion) is both the leader and the backbone
of the band and can growl out the blues with the best of them. Backed by a
brand new line up, BABB is stronger than ever and proof that the blues in
Detriot are still alive and kicking!
Start listening to "No TIme To Waste" and you wont want to stop. Get this
cd in your collection NOW!

Smooth Down Under

Smooth Down Under, based in Branson, MO, is comprised of 3 musicians from different stomping grounds in the U.S., united by the blues. Recently, with shows in K.C., Mo., and Lake of the Ozarks, they are expanding their fanbase even further. The first thing that struck me upon listening was the excellent, tight guitar work. From originals to classics by Jimi and Stevie, the guitar, vocals, bass and drums are completely in sync on every single track. Richard Lee Wilson, the newest member of the band, owns on guitar and lead vocals. His powerful voice is gravally when appropriate, and soothing on other songs. Steve “Smooth Thunder” Cole is on bass, wailing alongside the guitar work for a tight, clean, fully enjoyable final product. On drums, Eric Sokol recently moved back from L.A., bringing his perfect cadance with him. If you love good, honest blues backed by serious talent, Smooth Down Under is certainly your cup of tea. The band is available for nightclubs, private events, and much more. Check them out today at
