"Within the context of the group everyone shines. They're all tight and loose at the same time and this doesn't change as they put together this blues concoction.Any fans of these musicians and regional styles will find this appealing"

 

Matt McDonald-Blues Magazine 7/16

 

"Their self-titled debut(***1/2) is a blast from start to finish. Effortlessly melds California and Texas as well as Chicago blues on a set of originals. 

 

Nick Cristiano-Philadelphia Inquirer 8/25/16

 

"They just might be the best blues band going"

 

Kent Wolgamott-Lincoln Journal Star

 

"A stunning piece of work from start to finish"

 

Roger Gatchet-Living Blues

 

"Top notch from start to finish, skip this one at your peril."

 

Mark Smith-Music Revue

 

"These guys have a sound as big as their combined resumes..."

 

Kevin Wierbicki-antiMusic

 

"Though described as a blues 'supergroup', this fivesome refreshingly displays none of the showboating or excess such a tag can suggest. Veteran harp master Mark Hummel fronts a lineup which lays down a set of blues as rock solid as each of the individual resumes."

 

Duane Verh/Roots Music Report

 

"All respected instrumentalists in their own right, this collaboration is a premium showcase of West Coast Blues.These guys are all veteran blues men playing what noted critic Dick Sherman dubs'Real Deal Blues'!"

 

Jim Hynes-Elmore Magazine

 

"Great bluesmen from California and Texas, including Mark Hummel and Anson Funderburgh....This is authentically real blues music. Dig It!"

 

Joe Wolfe-Ear To The Ground

 

"Terrific-this excellent release with more joint contributions and only a few individual blow out solos, making it walk like a sleeping giant"

 

Bman's Blues Report

 

"Having so many years under their belts, the band members are thrilled to be in a new project that can get them excited night after night. Feeding off each other's ideas, they bring something new to the table each show, keeping themselves as well as the audience entertained with the best effort they can put forth."
