ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Since 2000, Ted Tosoff and Rick Dalgarno have played their brand of blues rock at just about every possible venue in Western Canada and Europe. They have grown a fan base around the world in the roots blues genre. After two CD releases and Award nominations from the Toronto Maple Blues Awards in 2003 for Best New Artist and last year receiving a nomination for Most Outstanding Blues CD at the 2005 Western Canadian Music Awards The Blue Voodoo look to add to their booty of nominatons with their upcoming 3rd CD release.
Through-out the last 6 years The Blue Voodoo have brought a level of excitement and energy to the shows they perform unmatched by any other group for some time in The Vancouver Area. Acclaimed as "The Show To See" in this Area by Now Entertainment Columnist Dave Chesney, The Blue Voodoo have revved up their show with a higher octane dynamic powerhouse performance with new material and new faces.
After Touring Europe last February 2006, The Blue Voodoo began retooling their band and spread the word they were looking to grow the group.Ted Tosoff and Rick Dalgarno, the original Voodooheads brought two new faces into the fold by adding Kelly Stodola on Percussion and Gerry Berg on Bass
Drummer Kelly Stodola brings a slamming driving style that elevates the magic of the Blue Voodoo Vibe, coupled with the talented Bass playing of Gerry Berg the New Look Blue Voodoo now has the engine to drive the group to the next level...Watch out, cause the Voodooheads are on the loose. Look for their New CD Back to the Shack.

The Blue Voodoo steps back into the blues music scene with a vengeance

The Blue Voodoo steps back into the blues music scene with a vengeance with the release of their new album “Back To The Shack”.

This has got to be one of the best blues bands in the Americas. This album demonstrates what a band can do when they write their own material and play their instruments like banshees from hell. Each track is dynamic with its own unique sound and that's a great thing for fans of truly great music. "Back To The Shack” covers the gamut of genres of roots music, from blues to roots country and roots rock. The Blue Voodoo simply delivers everything and then some, that would be expected from a hit release. This will be the album to watch in 2007.

Ted Tosoff and Rick Dalgarno are a tag team that other bands dream about.
Blue Voodoo /Back To The Shack/ Blue Voodoo

This BC band is creating some buzz and from listening to this breakthrough third CD, it’s not hard to understand why. Ted Tosoff and Rick Dalgarno are a tag team that other bands dream about. They sing and play guitar very well, although Tosoff is the better singer and more distinctive, with a fine gravely voice (that reminds me of John Kay of Steppenwolf) but Dalgrano is no slouch either. Dalgrano is the better guitarist. They sing in unison or trade lines on virtually every song.

Their bandmates contribute enormously: Kelly Stodola on percussion and Gerry Berg on bass. Stodola’s credit might be indicative of the fact that he’s a little overpowering on the drum kit on occasion. Fortunately he’s very good. Byron Tosoff helps out on keyboards throughout, with Dave Hoerl of The Twisters on occasional harp. Strings and horns are added, effectively, to a delightful selection of original songs. These are all, you guessed it, by Dalgarno/Tosoff, and I hope they kept ownership of them, they’re that good.

They are all bluesy and some are just excellent blues. “Suitcase Blues”, “Monday Morning Blues” and especially “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” are among the best I’ve heard this year. They also have a sense of humour: “Mojo Lovin’ Man” strings together lines from Muddy Waters songs to the tune of “I Can’t Be Satisfied” and it’ll keep a smile on your face.

The opening song is called “Somewhere Else Instead” but they sing “I should have been somewhere else but I ended up here instead’, a clever device. There are other examples too. Go to www.thebluevoodoo.com and get yours.

Signature tight harmonies, great instrumentation, and clever original tunes
One of our favorite bands from north of the border, Canada's The Blue Voodoo, are back with a solid slab of irresistible party blues with the release of "Back To The Shack." It's a cool amalgam of blues, roots-rock, and a little bit o'soul in the mix. These guys have a unique sound forged from playing together for quite some time, and writing all their own material. They consist of Ted Tosoff on guitar and vocals, brother Bryon on keys, Rick Dalgarno on slide, dobro, and vocals, Kelly Stodola on drums, Gerry Berg on bass, Dave Hoerl on harp, and horns courtesy of Paul Wainwright. Check out the rockabilly-ish tale we can all relate to, those "Monday Morning Blues." "Suitcase Blues" is a lowdown slice of life concerning a lover who's leaving, with a really cool slide break and a vocal reminiscent of vintage Johnny Winter. "Somewhere Else Instead" is driven by the funky horn section, giving it an old-school Stax feel. We had two favorites, too. More great slide work and solid harp drives the story of a man who's been away from the comforts of home just a wee bit too long in "Mojo Lovin' Man." And, there's a "Black Moon Over Mississippi," and anyone caught "at the crossroads" can choose to "live in the sunshine" or make the same deal that Robert Johnson made....
Signature tight harmonies, great instrumentation, and clever original tunes are the trademarks of The Blue Voodoo. Fans, "Back To The Shack" is guaranteed to satisfy your "blues Jones!!" Until next time....Sheryl and Don Crow

Tom Harrison -Vancouver Province

"With the new album, Blue Voodoo raises its own standards.
"With the new album, Blue Voodoo raises its own standards. From the full,attractive packaging to a fuller production with horns on a few tracks, the quartet jumped up. The group writes in a broad variety of styles but identifiably is a blues band. Yes, they've got their mojo working (hear Mojo Lovin Man) but they also touch on southern rock and country,and they write songs devoid of the usual blues clickhs. There is a fresh upbeat
quality to "Watch think about that", a sense of humour to Somewhere else instead and a suitable dark moodiness to Black Moon." Tom Harrison.Vancouver Province, April 3 2007

Pacific Blues Recording

Downhome and uptown, with excellent original songs
BC Canada continues to simmer and boil with stellar blues acts, and The Blue Voodoo is another addition to our 'Canadian content' on the website.
'Back to the Shack' is the third chapter of their style of blues, and it's broad and as varied in styles as you might want on one disc. Downhome and uptown, with excellent original songs and a host of guest musicians, this one requires more than one listening to take it all in.

The third CD from Blue Voodoo is varied in styles and moods, but original in its blues roots. The band has received nominations from the Maple Awards and WMCA for their past works, this one should garner them even more.

Back to the Shack,It opens with all guns blazing!
Just a few comments on Back to the Shack - WELL DONE!
I like the way it opens with all guns blazing! - Somewhere else instead - Yeah! Watcha think about that - well I think's it great. Black Moon - I've heard and already liked. But my two all time favourites on the album is Monday Morning Blues (the Devil of the neighbourhoood) & SIMPLE - simply marvellous."
"Now Uncle Tom's Cabin - is Beatles influenced ...And Mojo Lovin' Man - I like the way the Voodoo took Mojo and made it their own. That's what the Blues is all about. All in all a fine Blues album if I do say so myself."

www.Blues Critic.com

The Blue VooDoo...These guys are really an adventurous melodic ....band
The leadoff track, "Somewhere Else Again", also has shades of the Fab Four with brass, organ and a Mott & The Hoople (Ian Hunter)-inspired vocal.Bluesy numbers you have the Swampy "Black Moon", steamrollin' "Monday Morning Blues", derivative "Mojo Lovin' Man" and the more Downhome "Suitcase Blues". The track that jumped up the highest is a gorgeous acoustic Rock ballad called "Reason Why". Lead singer and guitarist Rick Dalgarno affected vocal, the Beatlesque bridge and a seamless melody make this the song Soul Asylum needed before fading into memory."

Real Blues Magazine

*"I've just had my mind blown.Back to the Shack will slay music lovers"
....“Back To The Shack” has a lot of Power in the Sound (overall) thanks to some terrific horn charts from Wainwright who multi-tracked sax ‘sections’ seamlessly. This is very evident on the opening track “Somewhere Else Instead”, a hard-rockin’ number that quickly establishes the identity of the disc. “Watcha Think About That” is an excellent bit of song crafting and it straddles the Rock/C&W/Blues genres effortlessly. One the DJs will love. “Shoeshine Shuffle” is another original ‘hot one’ that features a fiery guitar solo (Dalgarno?) and acoustic harp from Hurricane Hoerl. “Black Moon” is another hard-rockin’ gem with tasty guitar and a nice Hammond organ swirling about. “Monday Mornin’ Blues” cries out for a video. A real jumpin’, infectious ditty with baritone sax bottom (or pseudo-baritone?) and the guitar work will have every old-time Rocker smilin’...... Andy Grigg
