ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Dixie brought her bare-knuckle style of Mississippi Hill Country drumming, Joe Mazzari brought his gutter rock guitar, and gritty vocals that have a New York bite, to create 61 GHOSTS.This unlikely duo are based out of the Northeast and draw upon their own personal musical influences. Each had already honed a sound through years of performing on the road.
Joe played with Johnny Thunders (post New York Dolls), fronted a handful of his own original rock bands, toured overseas numerous times, and recorded with Jimmy Miller who’d produced the Rolling Stones, Motorhead and Traffic.
Dixie traveled the world with legendary bluesman Leo ‘Bud’ Welch for years performing countless festivals worldwide.
61 GHOSTS felt the need to create their own unique style of music drawing upon Joe’s poignant lyrics and melodies. Joe and Dixie create steamy-driving grooves, razor sharp dynamics, and high energy to create what they refer to as gritty and primal rock n' roll. Their combined passion and need to create a style of music all their own exquisitely blend the attitude of the big city streets and the restless spirits of the Mississippi Hills that conjures up 61 GHOSTS.

Classic Rock Magazine
"….this six-track EP that conjours up the dreamy delta and the gritty mean streets in the same breath."

Rootsville Bues, Jazz & Roots Info Netherlands
"The man who comes to this '61 Ghosts' color is Guitar-slinger Joe Mazzari. This songwriter already started writing songs in his early twenties and inspired by names John Hiatt and Bob Dylan. But equally, he showed interest in Link Wray and Rory Gallagher. In the given 'blues', his preference was given to just about everything that had to do with the Delta. Since the 80's, he has already released some albums and traveled through the states and the UK. Not only with his Joe Mazzari Band but also with Johnny Thunders. The 'Ghosts' he has now found in Dixie Deadwood's person who played years of drums at Leo 'Bud' Welch. With the 'All Night Blues Band' playing for four years she released three albums under the name 'Mississippi Hill Country Blues'. Together with his grainy voice and rock guitar, Joe Mazzari has a strong personality who feels completely at home in the roots rock brought by these '61 Ghosts'.”

Chris Spector Midwest Record Entertainment Reviews, News, and Views…
"Two well-traveled rockers meet up in blues country just as electricity came to the area. Powered with the kind of sincerity that sneaks upon you and makes you a fan before you know it, the power, intensity and passion here make this a keeper for the play list. White kids with the blues and a vision for pushing tradition into the future, this is a lot more fun that you might have expected. By all means check it out."

The Rocking Magpie, Newcastle UK....
"...Mazzari sounds like Henry Rollins at times and others JD Wilkes or even Nick Cave; and his guitar flits between Steve Jones, Muddy Waters and Rory Gallagher…"

Dave Drury Blues Matters! Magazine Issue 95...
"This is down and dirty rock ‘n’ roll flavoured with touches of Americana and Mississippi hill country blues created with passion and fervour."

Gerry Casey, Music Critic Monaghan Times Ireland...
"Bonnie & Clyde of Rock n' Roll!”

Cedric Burnside, Grandson of the famed Hill Country Blues artist R.L. Burnside...
"...Dixie has the ear for raw blues."

Lester Thompson, Music Critic San Francisco Review...
"61 Ghosts is like being dragged behind an old Harley through the Americana Badlands."
