The last MOTU & The RoadHouse Jesters album won critical acclaim. Now, with the addtion of Carl Olsen on bass, and some road experience under their belts, this new live album shows even a greater chemistry in this group of very talented musicians. This live recording of the band was made on a hot NY Saturday Night ( June 28, 2008) at a SOLD OUT MOTU & The RoadHouse Jesters concert held at Port Jazz in downtown Port Jefferson, Long Island, NY. GoodTimes Magazine attended the SOLD OUT show and wrote this about the concert in their July 8,2008 Issue:
“ Dr Richard (motu) was a fabulous slide guitarist, and he was complimented by various solos/rhythms from George Gashonia’s hands. Carl Olsen had maybe one of the best bass sounds for a local blues band out there. Ed Modzel kept a clear-cut downbeat throughout each song. Rounding it all out was Dee Chetta’s voice; powerfully open, conquering delicate melodies, and dexterous vocal lines with soul. If one phrase had to explain it all, They were the best part of an Oreo cookie...even without milk. “
-GoodTimes Magazine (7/8/2008 Issue)

NO REFUNDS / NO EXCHANGES is MOTU's Ninth (9th) Official CD Release! It contains some blues classics along with a few great MOTU originals and it again demonstrates the versatility, and skill, of guitarist Dr. Richard Michelson as well as his accomplished associates on this disc.

Listen to this new CD and learn why the Long Island Blues Society calls him, "Interpretive, talented, and visionary!" MOTU's latest CD is guaranteed to please the toughest music critic!

The Best Jam Blues Guitarist Ever!!!
I saw MOTU & The RoadHouse Jesters at The BrookHaven Amphitheatre. That's also where I bought this great new CD. This band has two super guitarists that play off of each other in very different styles that work well together. I really enjoyed watching MOTU play regular picking guitar styles that reminded me of Hot Tuna, but I enjoyed MOTU's slide guitar playing even more! He is a master at this style and when he plays slide, his guitar comes alive with unique tones and sounds that I've never heard any slide guitarist do! He somehow uses his other fingers that the slide is not on to play other notes backing up his own slide playing. It is both unusual and amazing to watch and hear. I'm a guitarist so I went home and tried to duplicate what I saw MOTU do and I just was not able to do it! You have got to see this guy. He makes it all look so simple. Even the CD, when I first heard it I said OK this is very cool. But now the more I hear it the more I realize what great musicians this whole band is. Then like a cherry on top of an ice cream float, they also have this great female vocalist who sings with MOTU making even classic blues harmonies sound pretty! I have become a big MOTU fan and I recommend this live CD to anyone who digs good rock, jam, or blues guitar music! A must for any collection.

Motu on WRCN-FM
Motu told me he was going to be on from 8 - 10PM on Sunday on WRCN-FM 103.9 and each time I hear his music it gets better so I found the feed on the web.

Jerry Schaefer, the WRCN host, had a brief interview with Motu to start. He mentioned Motu's 2008/2009 Regional International Blues Challenge (IBC) win and that he is also a recent winner of two BILLBOARD World Music Awards! Motu explained that all of the "Roadhouse Jesters" didn't make it but a guitarist, George Gashonia, and their singer, Dolores Chetta, did.
The first two songs were Motu solos. "I Need a Little More Time" with a voice channeling an old blues master from the '30s backed by Motu's authentic old style slide blues. The announcer thought it was too much of a downer but hey, it is the blues not the happies. "A Wind is Blowing from the West" another Motu original done in the same style as the first. An anti-war song. The sentiment was similar to Emerson, Lake and Palmer's "Lucky Man" but all blues in the music. Great songs.

"Hesitation Blues" the classic blues song done with impeccable harmony with Dolores.

"Ain't None of your Business" joined by George and a Motu scripted song. Made you want to hear them all together if they could sound that good with just three members.

From the Roadhouse Jesters latest CD "No Refunds. No Exchanges" they did a Motu original "Refund Check". The covers are wonderful but give me the originals.

They talked about their European Tour and the great reception they received. What a great way to take a vacation! It sounded like I'm not the only person from out of state that is a fan.

"Hear Come Those Blues Again" a driving blues song with the truncated band. Motu showing his mastery of the slide guitar.

"Angel From Montgomery" shows of Dolores' voice beautifully in a John Prine song. What a sweet clear voice. A good counterpoint to Motu's rough blues singing voice. The classic "Little Red Rooster" showed Dolores off again. They played more.

Go and hear the Roadhouse Jesters play or Motu alone or buy the alblums. Motu is like wine. He has gotten better with age. Hell, I'm going to Memphis to hear him play.
