Dr. K's Blues Band - Dr. K's Blues Band (1968)

                                                               Dr. K's Blues Band
Former John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers guitarist/bassist Geoff Krivit formed the short-lived blues and boogie group Doctor K's Blues Band with pianist Richard "Dr. K" Kaye and vocalist/harmonica player Mick Hasse in 1967. Although their self-titled album, released in 1968, showcased masterful interpretations of blues classics and included a memorable piano boogie, "Crippled Clarence," sales were virtually nonexistent and the group disbanded. Most members of Doctor K's Blues Band, including Krivit (who had shown great promise when he briefly replaced Eric Clapton in Mayall's Bluesbreakers), disappeared from the music scene.

Smokey Wilson - The Man From Mars (1997)

                                                                Smokey Wilson
This West Coast-based guitarist shines brilliantly on his third album for Bullseye Blues. While some of his earlier locally produced efforts have been uneven affairs, here kudos must go forth to producer and keyboard sideman Ron Levy. Levy keeps Wilson's guitar tone at sting and bite level 10 and his vocals right up front and toasty, surrounding him with a solid rhythm section and spare horn stabs. Eight of the 12 songs here are from Smokey's prolific pen, including "You Don't Drink What I Drink," and the title track, "Too Drunk To Drive," "Don't Tangle With Me," and "Black Widow," winners all. A quartet of covers (Magic Sam's "Easy Baby," Elmore James' "Something Inside Of Me" and a pair of Howlin' Wolf tunes, "Louise" and "44 Blues," with the latter featuring a guest turn from James Harman) rounds out this excellent session. Those who can't get enough of nasty, stinging lead guitar lines would do well to investigate this album.

ELECTRIC BLUES - Still, Going Strong ! (1979)

                                                               ELECTRIC BLUES
The Noordwijk band Electric Blues was founded by Henk Vegt, Bert Bulk and Wendel Hillebrands. The first years (1967-1968) "when the boys only counted 15 years" under the name "Relax" but in 1969 the name was renamed Electric Blues, a name that better covered the load because the repertoire consisted exclusively of Blues songs of John Mayall-Cuby-Savoy Brown-Ten Years After Livin'Blues etc. In 1969 drummer Dick van Oosten joined the band. Soon the band was asked for performances, first in the Bulb Region and later on far beyond in Germany. In Noordwijk and the surrounding area the band had many loyal fans who traveled with all performances. The band already had a unique Bandbus for that time, on which ELECTRIC BLUES was chalked in large letters. The guitarist Wendel Hillebrands was for that time a real attraction, he saw n.l. chance to conjure up the difficult and especially fast blues riffs from his Les Paul guitar, something that back then (1970 and over from GB) could hardly be seen on the Dutch stages. Wendel was in a wheelchair because he had been paralyzed in childhood. But .... he was dragged everywhere by the band members and was a full-fledged band member. Unfortunately, in 1989, Wendel died at the age of 41.
In the seventies the band was also asked for the hugely popular TV program "Voor de fuist weg" by Willem Duys. In this program, many bands broke through, so also for Electric Blues an excellent opportunity, but Wendel refused to offer him mooting reasons, Too bad .... other ??
In 1974 mouth harmonica virtuoso Pietro Smeding (Red Pietro) was brought to the band and not without success, Pietro knows to the present day to play a fantastic piece of blues harp. In 1979 the band released their first LP called "Still going Strong" , composed solely of this work, mostly composed of texts by Henk Vegt. Henk has always been the driving force behind the band, once started as a singer / guitarist and from 1974 as a singer / drummer. The entire management and PR activities were and continue to be provided by Henk Vegt.
In the early years the band rehearsed in Sassenheim in the bulb shed of Warnaar on the Hoofdstraat, but soon the band moved to the familiar Noordwijk to the bulb shed of the Fam.Duindam on the Schiestraat.De last 5 years of the existence of the band found rehearsals take place in the bulb shed of Piet Warmerdam in Noordwijkerhout.
Henk Vegt and Bert Bulk have always been members of the band after a short break. Together they have loved and suffered from birth in the Schoolstraat (Henk 4-2-1952) and the Julianastraat (Bert 1-3-1952). each other shared both at school and daily with the band.
Since November 2011 the band rehearses weekly and with great enthusiasm in the farm of Henk Vegt. The place of Wendel has been taken over by the well-known guitarist Aadje Kreeft who in the seventies has seen all Dutch and many foreign pop venues with the bands Blue Planet-The Incrowd-Think Tank and George Cash. Aad released several LPs and singles of which the famous: I'm going man I'm going from Blue Planet and Nightingale from George Cash.
To give the band a bit more body, Edwin van Schijndel has joined (ex-In Crowd)

Joe Metzka - Live at BB's (2016)

                                                              Joe Metzka
A Chicago transient, Metzka's smokin' blue LIVE AT BB'S is not only a funky, jazz-rock tinged aural treat, it's a true embodiment of St. Louis' deep musicianship.

Metzka actually moved here three years ago. Pursuing a teaching career, he also hoped to sharpen his strong blues based guitar and vocal chops. Auditioning for live work, BB's agreed to a regular Thursday gig. To perform though, Metzka paid his Chicago based band to stay overnight after each show. Cash earned became a wash. So John May offered a suggestion: Try some STL musicians.

That proposition was not only a winner, this CD is its showcase.

Starting with the Metzka original "Your Love", keyboardist Ladale Fitzpatrick, bassist Phil Burton and drummer Ron Carr lay open a palette primed for sweet improv. All of Metzka's songs are excellent. The driving "Can't Keep Up With You", love seeking "Stay", and jazzy after hours instrumental "Ladale And Ron Go To White Castle" grace his natural songwriting with the ensemble's deft skill.

True to his Chicago roots, Metzka covers Otis Rush's "All Your Love" and the classic blues staple "Sweet Home Chicago". He also covers our city's "Everyday I Have The Blues" and segues a fascinating combo of "Ain't No Sunshine" with "Summertime". But the most moving cover is "Georgia". A Hoagy Carmichael ballad that Ray Charles lifted straight to heaven, Metzka's smoky voice and Fitzpatrick's classic piano tugs the beating heart as well as Ray Charles' version ever did.

The St. Louis scene has and continues to grow a myriad of blues based styles. Whichever way the mirror points though, this town's ability to reflect, absorb and grow is exponential. Joe Metzka's LIVE AT BB'S not only follows the precedence of BB's four wonderful blues releases, it delivers its own pure stamp of STL magic.

Frankly speaking, Joe Metzka's arrival can be heralded as a welcomed awakening. Just push play on the CD player and let this baby spin. The real deal flows from there...... ENJOY!!

Rolly Gibb - Drôle De Gueule (2019)

                                                                     Rolly Gibb
Rolly grew up in Paris, France where he learned classical music as a child.  Then Rolly traded his classical education for a guitar purchased at the local flea market.  He formed several bands with his sister who played the piano and sang with him with other friends and started to write songs for the band.  As the band evolved, Rolly and his sister were trained by a music production firm and started to record demos. 
But the music he loved was Rock and Blues and the record producers didn't seem to understand this important point!  So while his sister became a professional background singer, Rolly left for Canada. 
At some point, he didn't touch his guitar and didn't write new songs and it was only many years later that he realized that music was really his only raison d’être! 
The encounter with some musician friends with a home studio put him back in the mood for creation and he quickly started to write one song after another and just couldn’t stop anymore.

Big George Jackson - Beggin' Ain't For Me (1998)

                                                                Big George Jackson
Revered songwriter Big George Jackson's songs didn't have the same snap, crackle, and pop when he recorded them himself -- they always came off better when sung by other singers. Jackson's low voice wasn't the best vehicle to sell the hearty Southern dramas he wrote so prolifically; it was better suited for uptempo blues, the material that comprises the lion's share of Beggin' Ain't for Me. He wrote eight of the ten songs, but the most lively numbers are Elmore James' "Shake Your Moneymaker" and "Kitchen Sink Boogie" (credited to a trio of writers) with its strong lead guitar play. Jackson's no spring chicken, but "Ella May" sounds as if a much older man is singing; the lyrics don't get much more complex than, "Ella May what you got cookin' today." "Looking to Steal Somebody" is so deliberate that you have time to insert alternate lyrics before Jackson sings the ones he wrote. Jackson helps his cause by blowing a fiery harp on many selections. If you're looking for an album of jumping blues, this is top shelf, but those expecting to hear Jackson the writer of "I'm Just a Prisoner," "Cheatin' in the Next Room," and "Find 'Em, Fool 'Em, Forget 'Em" will still be looking after this CD is done playing.

Scott Ellison - Live At Joey's (1995)

                                                                      Scott Ellison
Scott caught the music bug at an early age-February 13, 1964 to be exact-and just like every other nine year old who was watching the Beatles on Ed Sullivan that night, he fell in love with the guitar. During the 70's Scott's home town of Tulsa was a hot bed of musical talent. Eric Clapton and Freddie King's bands were both based in Tulsa as was Leon Russell's Shelter Records. Influenced and electrified by the British Invasion bands, moved by the sounds of Motown and touched by the soulfulness of the Rhythm and Blues music coming out of Memphis, it wasn't long before Scott started his own band. 
In 1977 he began touring with Jessica James (Conway Twitty's daughter) and by 1981 "Gatemouth" Brown had plucked up this emerging, energetic guitar player to play Rhythm in his band. 
Ellison became acclimated to the life of a musician on the Road and found that he loved it. He watched and learned a great deal from playing with Gatemouth. "What impressed me so much was not only his musicianship - he was a big influence on my guitar playing", Ellison says," It was his energy. He just had so much fun doing it. I told myself I want to have fun like that when I'm doing my own thing." A move to LA in the mid. 80's found Scott playing and touring with the likes of The Box Tops, The Shirelles, J.J. Jackson, The Drifters, The Coasters and Gary "U.S." Bonds. 
By the 90's Scott had formed his own Blues Band and opened up shows for such legends as Joe Cocker, Roy Orbison, The Fabulous T-Birds, Leon Russell, Bobby Bland and Buddy Guy. Throughout his career Scott has been a prolific song writer and has composed and released numerous CD's. Cold Hard Cash, produced by Dennis Walker of Robert Cray fame, all songs written by Scott and Dennis proved to be a highly successful CD. His CD's Live At Joey's, Chains of Love, Bad Case of the Blues and Icestorm have also been well received. All of his songs reflect Scott's love for the Blues and his talent as a writer.

1.I'm Ready Baby

3.I've Been Down Too Long
4.Chains Of Love

                                                              Possum Belly Overalls
We started in 2017 after we found Fabrizio. Ray was added and in Januari we did our first show at the famous Maloe Melo. Torsten and Jan met at the bar in Ilpendam where they live just north of Amsterdam. Torsten is a 100% Blues man playing the Mouth Harp like nobody else. He's got a “Little Walter” approach in his sound but got his own distinctive feel. Jan is the Rockabilly drummer with a big Blues collection and soft spot for traditional and Jump Blues from Doctor Ross to Wynonie Harris. Fabrizio is a great guitarist with a authentic sound and sing's like a true Italian. His sound and playing skills is a mix of Ike Turner meets Micky Baker. Ray is the man with the big Double Bass Swingin’ the Blues up and down those long string's. Joris is the boogie machine playing those keys with the like's of Jelly Roll Morton up to Jimmy McGriff on his Hammond B3.

Jack De Keyzer - Down In The Groove (2000)

                                                                   Jack De Keyzer
From concert halls to nightclubs, theatres to honky-tonks - guitarist, singer and songwriter, Jack de Keyzer has performed his brand of rockin? blues throughout North America for the past 25 years. Born in London, England, de Keyzer?s earliest influences were British rockers, Cliff Richard & the Shadows (who featured the great Hank Marvin on lead guitar.) By the time the Beatles hit, de Keyzer?s path was chosen. Learning rock?n roll and rhythm`n blues from the British groups, The Beatles, Rolling Stones, (US expatriate) Jimi Hendrix, Cream and Led Zeppelin, Jack eventually found the source and became a blues disciple from age 15 onward. De Keyzer say`s "I love all styles of music, just as long as there`s blues running through it." Starting as a sideman, session guitarist, de Keyzer worked with many international artists beginning with King Biscuit Boy, in Hamilton, Ontario where the teenaged Jack emigrated to from England. Jack was featured on several King Biscuit a! lbums. From there it was stints with Ronnie Hawkins and New York City, Rock-a-Billy crooner, Robert Gordon, where a very young Jack played alongside Duke Robillard. After this de Keyzer joined popular Canadian group, The Bop Cats. The Cats pre-dated Stray Cats and released several CD's before de Keyzer began fronting the more rock'n roll oriented Rock Angels. Jack also continued doing session work during this time performing with many of his musical heros, Bo Diddley, John Hammond Jr., Etta James and Otis Rush. De Keyzer also performed regularly with Blue Rodeo at this time. Starting his own band in 1985, Jack de Keyzer has released 3 CD's to date, "Hard Working Man" (Warner Music Canada 1991), "Wild at Heart" (1994 Parfio Music Group) and the latest, award winning release,"Down in the Groove."
