The Danny Petroni Blue Project” featuring Ku-umba Frank Lacy record(CD) has been a labor of Love.
Super storm Sandy had just devastated the Jersey shore; towns in and around Tom Rivers and inland towns like Sayreville were heavily damaged .
Many musicians and music related business were down. Gigs cancelled, venues damaged, all music productions stopped in the immediate area.
With in a few weeks The "Danny Petroni Blue Project" was born.
If I could create a blues record, with original songs that I had been writing, employ local Musicians and use local Music Production impacted by Sandy... that would be something.
I contacted Frank Lacy, Gene Boccia, Gary Oleyar, Dave Halpern and John Allen and the rest is history.
It has been a year since "The Blue Project" started and Sandy left us. The record is now finished and in the final manufacturing stage.
I'm inviting everyone to the bands "Asbury Park" debut.
“It has a country/jaz chill out feel to it maybe a little gospel thrown in there too. Great soulful vocals, superb tones It reminds me of Otis redding but it has a more modern edge. With the trend of skinny jeans and roughed up shoes.” Reverbnation
“Classic rock opus from a set of old school musicians out of the BSW or Chicago mold. A touch of Zappa is included as well with the R&B style singer. Actually there are great horn charts, pro rhythm ensemble plus lots of 'stunt ' guitar taking dives & spins a la Vai or Frank himself.” Reverbnation
