Album Notes
"Four local guys who just started playing the blues together a little more than a year ago will soon be on their way to Memphis to compete in the International Blues Challenge with the intention of playing to win. None of them has been to Memphis before, says A Ton of Blues lead singer and harmonica player Michael “Spud” S. Kelly, 50, from Leominster. And drummer Alexander C. Clark, 35, from Sterling, said he was never into the blues until a few months before he met his band mates. Clark said his girlfriend worked as a bartender in Fitchburg where the other two band members — guitarist Scott R. LeBlanc, 33, from Leominster, and bassist Jeff S. Lorenzen, 34, from Fitchburg — held blues jams. She had told them Clark was a drummer. .............“I went to a rehearsal and there was good energy. They said, ‘We're going to try out some other guys, too.' And, I said, ‘Oh no — I'm your man. If anyone else comes down here, I'll break their leg.'” "
- Paula Owen, Worcester Telegram & Gazette (Jan 20, 2012)

"A Ton Of Blues barreled into Boston’s Hard Rock Café last Friday night, and they kicked ass with originals and standards in a lively 45 minute romp. ........ guitarist Scott LeBlanc made his guitar hiss with fancy finger work, sliding some greasy notes around while ATOB’s mighty rhythm section kept a steady stump in the groove. There is no overlooking the heft this band serves up due to the drumming style of best dressed drummer Al Clark and knobby bass playing of Jeff Lorenzon........[singer Spud] Kelly is more of the "rangy voice used as an instrument" vocalist than what might be perceived, until you’ve heard him sing several different kinds of songs. A Ton Of Blues perform an aggressive take on the old school blues format. A driving rhythm section, wiry guitar, and thick, heavy harmonica mark this band in almost every song they play. It is definitely blues, but it’s wild and out of the cage."
