Album Notes
Following the success of the Johnny & MoTones first two "live in the studio"
albums; Two Hits For The Kitty (The Sun Studio Sessions) and Get Gone (The
Muscle Shoals Sessions) the group decided to spend 2010 doing a traditional
studio album. Recorded at RiverSide Productions, Mosinee, WI January
through August of 2010, the group features, Piano man Johnny Altenburgh and
mainstays.... Chris O'Keefe, guitar, John Greiner, sax and Keras Nimz,
guitar and vocals. Newcomers to the sessions are vocalist
extraordinaire...Kevin Moore as well as veterans, drummer Ryan Korb, bassist,
Bruce Lammers, Trumpeter Bob Kase, vocalists, Paula Hall, Ellen Altenburgh, Dave Baehr
and former Curb Records artist, Mitch Viegut (AirKraft.)

This talented group of musicians effortlessly switch gears from Electric
blues, to traditional blues to jump blues to Rhythm and blues and make it
all work together! The MoTones unmistakable sound lives on in "Nothing To

(About Two Hits For The Kitty)
"Any blues, roots, and early rock fan will love this retro album. It's
extremely easy listening, very danceable and has all the energy you'd expect
from a group playing in the hall of kings." (Jazz Review)

(About Get Gone)
"This is swamp-rockin' Memphis soul, slightly updated but with a reverence
for the old-fashioned blues-rock sound, with nasty guitars, gritty vocals,
sassy original songs, and a borrowed rhythm section of David Hood and Mike
Dillon Curington (from the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section) (Muse Inc.
Contemporary Blues Market)

Superb Blues
When you listen to the superb Blues CD, “Nothin’ To Lose,” by the fantastic band Johnny & The Mo-Tones, only one word comes to mind: Wow! This group has all the right grooves as their melodies are irresistible and so are the vocals and instrumentation. Opening up the album, the title track, “Nothin’ To Lose,” impresses with strong vocals and a vibrant energy from the piano and excellent sax riffs while the bass and drums keep the steady beat. They take the tempo down a few notches on the songs, “That’s Why I Sing The Blues” and "Wish You Were Young Again” giving this album a nice variety of mixes. The song, “The White cliffs of Dover,” highlights some brilliant solo work by the guitar and horn giving the audience a taste of the fantastic caliber of musicianship. Their rendition of the song, “Hey Joe,” is awesome as they put a nice spin on it. Fans of the Blues will really enjoy the intoxicating songs on the spectacular album, “Nothin’ To Lose.”
