The KingBees second album, Hoodoo Moon, solidifies them as one of the midwest’s most creatively original blues bands. Showcasing 10 new original songs, HooDoo Moon proves the KingBees to be one of the region’s premier blues bands. This CD paints the whole canvas of the blues, evoking comparisons to such artists as Professor Longhair, Little Feat and The Allman Brothers. Eclectic and highly entertaining, HooDoo Moon shows the KingBees are a band to be reckoned with
The 10 new original songs run the gamut from Chicago to New Orleans blues, with some blues rock in the mix. As Greg Martin, guitar virtuoso from the Kentucky Headhunters blurbed on the Hoodoo Moon cover,” RIck, Jim, David, Mike and Rob wear their influences well. Louisville blues icons such as Sylvester Weaver and Steve Ferguson from NRBQ would be proud.”
Rick Cain’s gritty vocals and screaming harp, Rob Brown’s impeccable keyboard work, the roaring thunder of the rhythm section featuring Dave Marasco on drums and Big Mike Taylor on the Fender bass, and the distinctive guitar work by Jim Haswell, coupled with eclectic and topical songwriting combine to form a uniquely satisfying album.
Recorded at LaLa Land studio and produced by Steve Wilson, amp tech to the late Stevie Ray Vaughn and current sound director for the Headhunters, Hoodoo Moon is guaranteed to please.
