The Danny Petroni Blue Project” featuring Ku-umba Frank Lacy record(CD) has been a labor of Love.
Super storm Sandy had just devastated the Jersey shore; towns in and around Tom Rivers and inland towns like Sayreville NJ were heavily damaged .
Many musicians and music related business were down. Gigs cancelled, venues damaged, all music productions stopped in the immediate area.
With in a few weeks The "Danny Petroni Blue Project" was born.
If I could create a blues record, with original songs that I had been writing, employ local Musicians and use local Music Production impacted by Sandy... that would be something.
I contacted Frank Lacy, Gene Boccia, Gary Oleyar, Dave Halpern and John Allen and the rest is history.
It has been a year since "The Blue Project" started and Sandy left us. The record is now finished.
“It has a country/jaz chill out feel to it maybe a little gospel thrown in there too. Great soulful vocals, superb tones It reminds me of Otis redding but it has a more modern edge. With the trend of skinny jeans and roughed up shoes.” Reverbnation
“Classic rock opus from a set of old school musicians out of the BSW or Chicago mold. A touch of Zappa is included as well with the R&B style singer. Actually there are great horn charts, pro rhythm ensemble plus lots of 'stunt ' guitar taking dives & spins a la Vai or Frank himself.” Reverbnation
