This is a blues lovers CD!!! If you like your blues music cut deep from the core then you will love the Dennis McClung Blues Band's new release, "Live! Out of the Ordinary." Recorded completely live in a local club with no production tricks, this has to be one of the purest, most honest blues performances available. The interaction between the audience and the band generates excitement from the first note. McClung's vocals are feverishly intense, and his lead guitar work is some of the finest you will hear any where. It stings with a passion that grabs you tight and won't let go. Add the sweetness of the piano and a sizzling rhythm section and you can't resist!!! The DMBB definitely delivers some powerful, hard-drivin' blues. "Live! Out of the Ordinary" is anything but ordinary. It's extraordinary!

Dennis McClung Blues Band - the Fab Four of the Blues!
2 Apr 2006. PARIS, France. - I thought I knew how can sing Dennis McClung. I thought I knew how he and his band can play. Well, I knew nothing, but nothing at all! I couldn't imagine that it is humanly possible to sing like Dennis sings "How Blue Can You Get" on his new album Live! Out of the Ordinary. Recorded live at the Ordinary club in Clarksburg, WV, using only 2 microphones located amongst the audience, the whole album explodes the limits of the "rough perfectness" we adore the Blues for. A tribute to the Blues Greats, this record, from all points of view, may itself be considered as a chef-d'oeuvre of a Great Artist, which is Dennis McClung Blues Band - the Fab Four of the Blues!
