Album Notes
FAT DANNY BENNETT - lead guitar, slide guitar, mouth harp
Fat Danny is the heart and soul of the Hard Tymz. He writes and sings all of the original material. Danny's songs come from his everyday life. Danny says, "Sing the Blues? Hell, I'm living the Blues." A multi-talented instrumentalist, Danny counts Johnny "Guitar" Watson, Link Wray, and all the "Kings" among his influences.

MIKE BURNES - drums and percussion
The quiet man of the group, Mike Burnes, lets his sticks do the talking as he lays down a take-no-prisoners drum beat. Mike brings an uptown jazzy feel to the down home blues of The Hard Tymz.

MIKE RINCON - Fender bass
Big Mike brings a welcome Latino influence and a solid low-rider style bottom to the Hard Tymz rhythm section. Mike not only played bass with the Blendells on their renowned cruising favorite, "La, La, La, La, La," but he also anchored Cannibal and the Headhunters on the original "Land Of A 1000 Dances."

DOYLE SMITH - Hammond organ & Wurlitzer piano
Born about 20 miles from where Robert Johnson played his last gig, Doyle hails from the Blues rich environment of the Mississippi Delta. His blues chops were honed on the chitlin' circuit throughout the Deep South.

Lujira Cooper - Blues Onstage

It's really too, too good to rate. Listen and be overwhelmed by "The Power of t
The title says it all. It's definitely a four star CD led Fat Danny Bennett. He and the band take you on an unparalleled blues adventure. It's blues as it ought to be with every song telling a story. Bennett's musical prowess reminds one of Jimmy Reed. He does it all; write, sing and play various instruments. This is Bennett's blues and no one else's.

This is a dynamic, electric collection. It is destined to be a future blues classic. One will look back on this like an Elmore James or Jimmy Reed collection and say "Wow he really understood the blues." With Fat Danny Bennett on vocals, guitar, and harp, you get a throwback to the days of Jimmy Reed. The music is his in all ways since he writes the lyrics and music to make his songs work. When you add to the mix Smith's keyboards; Big Mike Rincon's bass, and Mike Burnes smooth yet intense drums you get a blues mix worthy of hours of listening. If their power comes through on this CD imagine them live. Though I originally said I'd give this CD a four star rating I now revise that assessment. It's really too, too good to rate. Listen and be overwhelmed by "The Power of the Blues."
