ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Back Alley Blues Band (southern) is a Florida-based band that doesn't sound like your father's blues band... Crossing the "lines" and not being stuck in "the same old shuffles" this band can move the blues on people in more ways than one!

Mixing in the diverse influences and experiences all the members bring to the table, Back Alley Blues Band has a style it can call its own. Funky, rockin' blues are the sounds you will find here, mixed with a dash of Rockabilly and Americana stylings to boot. Not that the band couldn't play a traditional blues style, but why sound like everybody else?

There is a wide range of styles on display here, from the '60s Texas-style opener of "My Baby Caught The Train", the swamp-style ballad "Even Angels Get The Blues", the Bo Diddley inspired "Queen Of Hearts", the rockabilly rave-up "Oh Well", to acoustic flavored tunes like "Chihuahua Blues" and the traditional "Mississippi Blues".

This band is no fly-by-night operation, or a band of assembled studio musicians-Back Alley Blues Band has been around Tampa Bay, Florida going on 10 years now, playing every chance that comes our way, each time letting the soul of the music out of our hearts and into the ears of our listeners. Give the samples a try-you won't be disappointed!!

Hailing from Florida the Back Alley Blues Band has become a staple for the Sunshine State's blues aficionados. When Franc Robert (Guitar/Vocals) and Smokin Joe Sadowski (Harp/Vocals) teamed up in 1996 the backbone of the band was formed. Over the years members came and went, but in 2002 Don Cox (Bass) and David Simmons (Drums) the recipe for success was complete. In August 2004, the Back Alley Blues Band released their first full length CD. Their current CD, "Boxcar Tourists" is full of great music. We are airing "Call Me The Robber" on todays Blues Feed. It is only one of eleven great songs on this CD.

Great playing on this CD. I especially like the harp, great playing, great tone. I visit the Florida area a few times a year and will make a point of going out to hear this band.
