We are very happy with the radio airplay we are receiving all over Canada, and of course on the Island. Here is a quote from Jim Martens of the "Blues in the Morning" show on CFUV Fm 101.9 in Victoria about our NEW Cd "Workin' Man"! Thank you Jim!
"... its fun to play good music. I am quite taken with the quality of the production on your cd which makes the layering sound very good. I use a tube amp at home and when I played it there it was extremely warm in the low end but the guitar and harp sounded very crisp and rich. Production doesn't often stand out that much on blues records. It isn't that lots of records are not well produced, its more the case that the production on yours really stands out.
I know that Smokers Cough on Sundays also plays your music.
Stay dry this weekend.Jim "
In the mean time, please SUPPORT LIVE MUSIC! Keep on ROCKIN' THE BLUES!
