Shane Theriot returns with another groove heavy collection of 10 original tunes dripping with New Orleans injected-funk and burning guitar.
Joined by a cast of legendary drummers including Zigaboo Modeliste (The Meters), Jim Keltner , Richie Hayward (Little Feat) and New Orleans icon Johnny Vidacovich, Shane masterfully rips over these grooves while still allowing the funky backbeats to take the front seat.
