Album Notes
GENTLEMEN'S BLUES CLUB: SHOTGUN WEDDING - COLLECTOR'S EDITION includes all 10 of the original tracks from GBC Vol.1 - Shotgun Wedding, plus an additional 5 Bonus Tracks, including 3 Concert Versions recording Live in Los Angeles, and 2 rare alternate studio mixes. The bonus material includes:

- SINCE I’VE BEEN LOVING YOU (Live): A rippin’ power trio version of the Led Zeppelin Blues Masterpiece.

- WHITE ROOM (Sonic Assault Mix): This 7 minute alternate version features a no-holds-barred Philip Sayce guitar solo that is simply incredible. Phil plugged in his Strat, turned up his Fuchs amp to 11, and “just went for it”! Lots of wah-pedal madness… Awesome!

- DUST BROOM (Live): A high-energy rendition that emortalizes Dirty Dave’s tale of love with a very naughty hotel maid.

- SHOTGUN WEDDING (Live): A faster live arrangement that includes the original bridge section that was edited out for the studio version.

- LYNDELL SHUFFLE: Originally a Screaming Buddahead tribute to BB’s old girlfriend (and her amazing “shuffle”). This infectious alternate version features Florida blues harp sensation Kellie Rucker and unites Dave & Phil with 4 of the original members of BB Chung King & The Screaming Buddaheads. 6 tasty solos!

Gentlemen’s Blues Club is an ALL-STAR, KICK-ASS, Hard-Rockin' Blues Album by Gentlemen's Blues Club (GBC) from Los Angeles, California. GBC is led by Bassist/Producer MICK STOVER (a founding member of BB CHUNG KING and THE SCREAMING BUDDAHEADS)

This GBC COLLECTOR’S EDITION is loaded with awesome Guest Stars, and boasts 3 of Southern California's most exciting Electric Blues Guitarists and the best Hammond B3 player in North America. Check out this line-up:

*** "DIRTY" DAVE OSTI *** vocalist extraordinaire, is also one of the most Soulful Guitarists on the planet. He may be legitimately labeled a master songsmith, having written over 500 great tunes! His raw, aggressive talent is beyond description... He will wear you out with his hi-energy rock songs, then sooth you back to life with his smooth acoustic masterpieces. Check out his awesome Grammy contending original song "The Thorn" on this highly acclaimed disc.

Grammy Nominee *** ALAN "BB Chung King" MIRIKITANI *** has been a West Coast Blues icon since 1988 when he masterminded the now legendary BB CHUNG KING & THE SCREAMING BUDDAHEADS. He has toured all over the US, Canada, Europe, and Japan, spreading the "GOSPEL OF THE BLUES". BB always blows your mind and shows you why they say he has "SOUL FROM DEEP DOWN IN THE HOLE!" His modern trio incarnation of THE BUDDAHEADS can be found on and his CD "Mumbo Jumbo" is also sold on CD Baby

Special Guest Guitar Wunderkind *** PHILIP SAYCE *** The JAN 2006 Edition of GUITAR PLAYER MAGAZINE praised Philip's "Chewy drop-tuned riffs, wiggy bends, sassy wah, singing feedback, and waves of blistering, Fuzz Face-soaked leads". Originally from WALES via TORONTO CANADA, Phil has been tearing up the "L.A. SCENE" for the last 4 years. He has toured, recorded, and performed with such greats as MELISSA ETHRIDGE, JEFF HEALEY, UNCLE KRACKER, and DOBIE GRAY. Last year Philip appeared on JAY LENO, DAVID LETTERMAN, GOOD MORNING AMERICA, and received a standing ovation at THE 2005 GRAMMY PRESENTATIONS as the featured guitarist in The Melissa Ethridge Band. His debut American solo CD "Peace Machine" is also available on CD Baby. Check out for more info

*** TEDDY ZIGZAG *** is LA's "first call" Hammond B3 KEYBOARD player. He toured with GUNS & ROSES in their heyday (including their infamous WEMBLY STADIUM performances in England) Ted played extensively with CAROLE KING & SLASH'S SNAKEPIT, and currently tours with ALICE COOPER. Ted also plays a mean blues harp, and has been featured in numerous movie releases & TV productions. He undoubtedly is one of the very best MCs in the music business. Check out his highly impressive discography on

Drummer, Producer, Actor *** DAVID RAVEN *** is one of the most sought-after drummers in Los Angeles. His album credits include STEVE JONES (of the SEX PISTOLS), RICKY MARTIN, IGGY POP, DREAD ZEPPELIN, BOBBY WOMACK, The SURFARIS, The MEAT PUPPETS, and his own personal project The MOJO MONKEYS. He is featured in the “Off-Broadway” smash, MUTAYTOR. Check out his alter-ego “Hambone Hix” at

*** MICK STOVER *** 6'3" of throbbing bass groove, Mick toured JAPAN, the US and Canada with BB CHUNG KING & THE SCREAMING BUDDAHEADS sharing bills with JOHNNY WINTER, PAT TRAVERS, OTIS RUSH, GREAT WHITE, NAZARETH, ROBIN TROWER, & the great BB KING. He has played onstage with SLASH, ERNIE ISLEY, CC DeVILLE, DWEEZIL ZAPPA, STEVE STEVENS, GILBY CLARKE, JOE BONAMASSA, etc. Check out his bio and discography at

Rare Studio Versions and Wild Live Renditions make this CD ROCK!!!
I was fortunate enough to see GBC live in Southern California twice in 2006. WOW! The best band I have seen in a long time. David Raven & Mick Stover are the tightest rhythm section since the days of Stax & Motown. Dave Osti is of the brightest stars in today's Hard Blues scene and Teddy ZigZag (Guns 'n' Roses) is the best Hammond B3 player I have seen since Jon Lord played Osaka with Deep Purple. I love the new bonus LIVE tracks because they capture the incredible vibe of a GBC concert. My favorite tracks on this COLLECTOR'S EDITION are "Since I've Been Loving You" (better than Zep), the bonus version of "White Room" (the hottest solo of the year), and "Living at the Aztec Hotel" (greasier than vintage ZZ Top).

These Gentlemen KICK ASS!
... Gentlemen’s Blues Club could be described as something of a super group, composed of members who all come with impressive musical resumes. Band leader and bassist Michael (Mick) Stover is one of the founders of the infamous BB Chung King & the Screaming Buddaheads, a band long known for its “party ‘til you drop” blues rock style. Vocalist/guitarist “Dirty Dave” Osti is credited with having written over 500 songs, as well as being one of the most respected blues-rock guitarists in Southern California. His song, “The Thorn,” on the GBC disc “Shotgun Wedding,” was nominated for a Grammy. Drummer, producer and actor David Raven is also a familiar face on the LA music scene, with a list of album credits as long as a Fender Strat. He’s worked with Steve Jones (Sex Pistols), Ricky Martin, Iggy Pop, Dread Zeppelin, Nancy Sinatra, The Surfaris and many more. Keyboardist Teddy Zigzag is a top-call Hammond B3 master, having worked with Guns & Roses, Alice Cooper and many other top names. In addition, GBC is often joined onstage by luminaries Alan “BB Chung King” Mirkitani (front man of the Buddaheads), guitarist/vocalist Philip Sayce (Melissa Ethridge, Jeff Healey) and drummers Lee Spath (Buddaheads) and Joe Travers (Zappa). If you like your blues hard and sweaty, this... is it.

the experience is now complete - just what the doctor ordered!
i really dug the shotgun wedding cd. one of this years 10 best albums i think. i bought this new enhanced cd and my musical experience is now complete.

the collectors edition has all the original songs + a bunch of way cool additional stuff. my favorite new track is the sonic assault mix of white room. phillip sayce plays the best solo i have heard in years on it. i think he is the best blues guitarist in the world after jeff beck. the sonic assault solo keeps going + going and keeps gettin better until it climaxes at the end. the original version fades out but on this one you can hear him unplug his guitar and turn off his wah wah pedal at the end. its uber cool.

there is also a live version of since i been lovin you that shows dirty daves musical genious. he plays better than page + sings better than plant at the same time. hes got soul, baby. A whole lotta soul. great effin cd!

Hans Schwanz

Even better than the original.
Anyone who is a GBC fan will like this album very much. I purchased Volume 1 when it first came out and played it every day for a month. Now I am doing the same with the Collector's Edition. I'm falling in love with the guitar playing of Dirty Dave & Phil all over again.

Steve Fields

Too good to keep to yourself
Great songs, great hooks, great licks, and great lyrics. This cd has it all! Pound for pound these guys are the best outfit since the days of cream and jimi hendrix. I hope the next gentlemens cd comes out real soon.
