Album Notes
"Before there was The Blues Brothers, there was Duke and the Drivers."

Dean Johnson, Boston Herald, January 22, 2002

DUKE AND THE DRIVERS has achieved legendary stature as one of the greatest New England party bands of all time. From their inception, the band has been known for explosive rock and roll, funky rhythm and blues, and their outrageous stage show featuring front men Sam Deluxe, Cadillac Jack, Mad Mississippi Buffalo, Earthquake Morton and Rhinestone Mudflaps III.
Formed in the early days of Boston Rock and Roll and as a result of the Duke's inspirational training regimen, the DRIVERS honed their skills playing nearly every college and roadhouse throughout New England. They went on to sign with ABC records, where they recorded two albums featuring the singles "What You Got" and "Check Your Bucket". The DRIVERS have had the pleasure of working from coast to coast with the likes of: Aerosmith, B.B. King, Deep Purple, J. Geils, ZZ Top and the Eagles. They have garnered a devoted following of Duke fans which has continued to grow to this day.
In recent years, DUKE AND THE DRIVERS has anchored a series of special events, including their now infamous Annual Christmas Show. Always a smash, this year's party at The House of Blues in Cambridge, Massachusetts sold out an unprecedented three nights in just a few hours.
With the release of a new CD and Anniversary Celebration DVD, the Duke has felt compelled to gather his unique cast of characters once again, in 2003, for the Check Your Bucket Revue Tour.
Along with the original members, this new revue includes side men associated with Buddy Guy, Peter Wolf and The Four Tops. The incomparable Uptown Horns, best known for their work with The Rolling Stones on their Steel Wheels Tour, are also on board. The Duke is very proud of this pan cultural extravaganza and the cross generational infusion provided in JK Sampson, the Duke's favorite guitar gunslinger and biological son of Sam Deluxe.
With material that is more relevant today than ever, their zany stage antics, backed by an explosive rhythm and blues machine, the extraordinary "Check Your Bucket with Duke and the Drivers Revue" is a special event, not to be missed.

" How exciting is this! "

I've been waiting 25 years to for THE DUKE to get back toit !! Awesome !!
This CD brings back so many great memories of carefree goodtimes. Ii have been playing it nonstop since I got and even turned on a few young folks to The Duke ! Thanks for keepin it rollin !!

Your friend,



This was the way (LIVE) to hear Duke et.al. in the early Beantown days.
It is great to hear this material after they were away for so long. It is sad about the passing of Bobby C. the drummer--he was too young. Periodically they reunite to play here and about. Keep your eye on their web site. In the meantime, check out the Mystics for that gritty Sam Deluxe vocal, not to mention the outstanding lineup. Their two vinyl releases were great, but again the material was best witnessed live. This disc captures that. Roll On Duke!

I "LOVE" the CHECK YOUR BUCKET CD...pca/LaCrosse, Wi, SF,CA
Duke and The Drivers: check Your Bucket...a must for your collection. Its a live performance with a lot of energy!!!!Buy at least two copies...sorry I forgot to bring one to my SF condo to listen to, but have a copy of the CD at my main home and also for my car..Gave several copies to firiends as gifts. Its UPBEAT and gets you going!! A GREAT Group...pca..just enjoy their music.


WOW! Makes me feel young again.
The Drivers have not missed a beat!! Thirty years ago there were TWO, TWO bands in Boston to party with and to be loyal to. They were Duke and The Drivers and The James Montgomery Band. Shake, Rattle, and Roll, the Drivers still have their soul! Couldn't help myself, here I am singing and playing air guitar...Thanks guys. Keep on rocking!!
