Eddie Zyne

Solid! This guy is the real thing!
This record feels like somebody crossed Jerry Lee Lewis with Elvis Presley. Victor's voice has great depth and was recorded with terrific realism. I have to give the producer, Stephen Dees, a hand for getting
Victor's piano sounding like I was standing right over it (I could hear every note). The band was so solid that I wondered if this was some sort of computer trickery until I heard the instrumental track and knew it
was flesh and blood playing their hearts out. You'll want to play this CD over and over again. Buy it!

Deb

My heartstrings have been stroked in just the right way!
The sound is incredible! The lyrics are sensual and stunning! This is one of the best produced cds that I have heard in a long time! Way to go! Can hardly wait to add it to my collection! TOP NOTCH STUFF!

Laura

Well done!
This CD is beautifully produced, with great material and each track having it's own unique flavor. It's hard to listen to this without wanting to dance. Overall, a very talented group of musicians performing tastefully. WELL DONE!!

Joseph Rupke

Simply the Best
Long live the Blues. Are you the only guy/gal left in the world who thinks blues is the only real music? Do names like Clapton, King (all 5), Charles, Vaughn, Todd, Hooker, or Lewis make you want to stand up and be counted. Are you sick and tired of every FM station and TV program playing "music? There is an answer, and there is hope. Victor Wainwright re-awakens the blues with every note. Stand up, be counted, join your brothers and sisters in the blues and listen to this album. The first few tracks will shatter the ether your ears have been swimming in for years thanks to current crap music. Prepare to feel alive. Prepare for a new life. This is the time, here is the CD and your chance.

Daytona Beach News Journal

Poor Jerry Lee Lewis
Poor Jerry Lee Lewis. Yep, the piano-stompin' wild man was among the inaugural inductees in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986, but you know a whole lotta sobbin' has choked his heart every time the Killer has surveyed today's music scene.

While even the most gorilla-fingered nu-metal guitarist has a Chuck Berry riff or two tucked into his arsenal, Lewis' effect on modern rock is about as apparent as the Teletubbies' influence.

Well, Jerry Lee, rest easy. Daytona piano slapper Victor Wainwright feels your pain, and so he's thrown a whole lotta Killer spirit into his sizzling new CD, "Piana from Savannah."

Yes, Wainwright is an MTV-weened twentysomething, but he's sold his soul to roots rock and rootsy R&B. With area musician Stephen Dees as producer and frequent co-writer, Wainwright pays homage to Lewis on "Shoestring" and the raucous title track and cranks up some high-octane boogie-billy on "Two-Lane Blacktop."

Get up outa that Easy Chair and Get Gone!!
This CD is like a drug - one listen and you're hooked. If this doesn't get you going, you must be dead! From Melody Drive to the Holy Ground, take that Two Lane Blacktop and Bug Out at the Sugar Shop. This is the coolest rockin' roots stuff since Elvis left the building. Not a Bad Seed in the bunch. Even if your on a Shoestring budget, get this CD. You'll be glad you did!!

Melinda

Victor...you ARE the Piana King!
Though it's hard to be objective when you know an artist, I see I am not the only one bowled over by this small peek into the complex greatness that is Victor Wainwright. His resounding voice sends goosebumps up the spine while his lightning-kissed fingers send chills back down it. The commanding presence of the band, captured with all of the energy and tone of a live performance, is an amazing and versitile animal all on its own. This stunning tribute to the roots of blues will have anyone toe tapping, knee slapping, and dancing around the livingroom before the first track is even over. And for a real treat, sneak away to Daytona and find this talented young man in one of his haunts, banging away with his band. I promise you are in for a royal treat because he's just as warm and friendly as he is a blazing genius on the piana!

Move Over Jerry Lee & Ray Charles...Victor is Piana King!!!
"Piana King" tells it all... Nothing holds you back from wanting to crank up the volume in a car. You just can't get enough of it, once you hear it. It's a rockin' good time!
"Sugar Shop"... A delicious treat to Blues Music, you'll want to listen to time and time again.
"Easy Chair"... Just what you want to listen to at the end of the day.
"Holy Ground"... Whoa! Church Music on a Blues CD?... Hey, It ROCKS!!
"Shoestring"... Brings me back to the happy times of Jerry Lee Lewis, and makes me forget all my blues. If I had any left, listening to this cd.
"Baby I'm Yours"... A love song that I finally like. Elvis couldn't touch this if he wanted to!!

It's hard to follow the speed limit while this one's playing!
I remember the first time I met Victor Wainwright. I gravitated into a local pub after being seduced by the groove based music coming from inside the smoky bar. I saw customers clapping and swaying to the music. Lo and behold! There was this robust, clean-cut kid sitting behind a keyboard, his hat cocked to one side. It made me feel good to hear the music from yesterday's era being brought back to life by this talented young man. I remember thinking, "This kid won't be here for long." So I decided any bar or restaurant that booked Victor knew what they were talking about and that is exactly where you could find me most weekends. It wasn't hard to find Victor out on the streets. He has been playing on a regular basis for the last two years. The first CD that Victor sent me, Shoestring, was an example of a born talent, still in its cocoon state. Well, I have news for you: The butterfly has emerged! That young boogie-woogie keyboard boy is all grown up. Now he has given us Piana From Savannah, featuring the King of the Keys. Albert Ammons and Pinetop Perkins would be proud. Piana From Savannah is a superbly mastered collaboration of Victor Wainwright and respected local musician Stephen Dees. With the help of Greg Gumpel on guitar and mandolin, Brian Kelly on drums, Patricia Ann Dees on sax, Charlie DeChant on sax, Mark Hodgson on harmonica, Justin Olsen on trumpet and joining the whole gang on backup vocals, the CD is a top quality production of Victor's piano, vocal, and Hammond organ talent. I have no doubt that this will quickly be picked up by a major label. My favorites: "Piana From Savannah"; "Easy Chair"; "Holy Ground"; "Bug Out"; and "Baby I'm Yours." You will want to buy this CD now while you can still catch Victor at local venues. Atlantic Records in Daytona on International Speedway is great for finding up-and-coming local artists on disc. And be careful Cats, it's hard to follow the speed limit while this one's playing.

Hey, brother, want a cup o' joe, man?
This CD is so sophisticated, so complex, so demanding... But not really. Here is an example of the ease of what jazz, blues, and rock n' roll has to offer. Simplicity is where you find it, where you make it, where you dig it. One song in particular exemplifies this perfectly. The track, "Easychair" has it all. A lazy, sauntering sache, easy flow, easy tempo, easy on the ears, easy on the brain, easy on the soul. Yet, it's not as easy as it sounds. These guys just make it sound and feel that way. Rock players who truly take music seriously eventually learn that slow and easy is not easy to do. It requires spiritual feel, deep intuition, and good enough chops to relax into what you play. It takes skill to be able to play lazily. It takes a solid sense of rhythm to be able to fall back on one another in this sort of arrangement, and these guys make it all seem so easy, so simple, so natural... Man, once I get up outta this chair, I'm gonna write these cats a nice review, see...?
