This band has an attitude - a BLUES ATTITUDE.
Hailing from Olympia Washington, BLUES ATTITUDE perform a raucous, style of blues that combines traditional blues, classic rock and new country resulting in an highly entertaining and very danceable style that goes afar from the typical “blues-rock” sound. BLUES ATTITUDE has been hosting a weekly blues jam in Olympia for over 3 years as well as performing throughout the south sound area.
This debut CD from Blues Attitude shows their fun lovin' way with a lyric and their ability to knock out a solid groove! Show Time Groove has songs which cover everything from love lost in Long Distance Call to just hangin' out with family and friends in the Burger Song to just plain fooling around in Pop's Blues. Show Time Groove provides a look at how Blues Attitude can provide new arrangements to classic cover tunes like Paul Butterfeild's Born in Chicago or Norton Buffalo's Iz This Love.
JB Bentley plays guitar in a style ranging from driving Texas blues to Deep South delta slide. T-Bone on vocals & bass and his highly melodic approach to the bass takes the band beyond the sounds of your typical power trio. Smoke on drums provides tight fat grooves and tasty licks propel the band into overdrive. Add their summertime fourth Stan "the Man" Foreman and sound just grooves.
If you like Freddie King, Albert Collins, Eric Clapton and John Fogerty you are gonna like these guys.
