Album Notes
It's about time that another band has finally decided to break the mold of humdrum, ho-hum music being spoon-fed to us by the music industry. Elvis did it. So did the Beatles. Steve Earle and Dave Matthews are doing it. And now, SlingBlade is heading where most of the clone and cover bands fear to go; down the path of a musical genre that has yet to be properly labeled, but is fast sweeping through the country. Some call it "Americana". Some call it "Roots Rock". We call it "Roadhouse ".
"Roadhouse." The name elicits the image of the early honkytonks; with sawdust on the dance floor, and lighting coming from candles stuck in long necks mixed with the glow of the neon sign hanging above the bar. These were the homes of the early Rock pioneers who gave you that raw, sensuous, in-your-face sound, long before disco, and long before video, when live music was King.
The best way to get a really clear idea of what a certain genre of music is like is to actually get out and listen to some of it. Roadhouse is no different. Getting a grasp on Roadhouse may take a bit longer since it is such a wide genre of music. In fact, it is a multi-genre genre. Roadhouse is Hank but Not Garth, Stones but not Skynyrd.
As their bootleg tapes and CDs circulate among those who are already in the know, SlingBlade continues to work on original material to take into the studio for their second recording session. And they continue to build their repertoire with the "Roadhouse-Rock, Swingin', Honky-Boogie, kinda thang" that generates so much excitement at their performances.
There are those that lead and those that follow. SlingBlade is proud to be one of the leaders of a whole new musical experience. 'Cause, if you're not the lead dog, the view never changes.

Thanks for a new sound to party to!!!
Great CD for anyone's collection! Each song has it's own flavor and no skip tracks. Listen right through!!

A CD Baby Newbie

I'm listening to it right now! Makes me feel like findin' a cowboy and a beer and gettin' sawdust on my feet - er, boots.

C. Shewmake

I have a classical background and don’t usually listen to this kind of music, but this CD is addictive. Something different than the typical. All original songs! The first selection, Bottom of the Bottle, is a true gem. Excellent drums. Definite recommendation and money well-spent.

Mo Riddle

The BEST of the genre (until their next one)
The songs on this CD flow. It's been a long time since a recording has grabbed me the way 100% Certified Roadhouse has. I've had the pleasure of hearing some of the band's earlier music and the boys from VA are now absolutely on their way to the rest of America. Great job!

Vickie Lynn Of Rising Sun

Keeps A Smile On Your Lips
I have to admit that this type of music is normally not my cup of tea, however, you can't listen to these songs without a smile on your lips. The tracks are upbeat and the more sentimental ones touch memories in your heart that were forgotten. It's a great CD with the promise of greater things to come.

Very Good Rockin Group!
