Review by Tom Hyslop /Blues Review Magazine

Roxy Perry say's, "My gigs are not for wllflowers or the feint-hearted." " We have huge fun". If you aren't planning to have a good time, you've got the wrong disc in hand. Roxy has refined her big-city brand of Blues to guarantee total abandon, and with NY BLUES QUEEN, she takes the party from the city to the nation.
Her supporting cast is a revelation. The rhythm section of Bob Fusco / bass, Stuar Stahr / drums and Bob Mayo's piano playing, rocks with a steady roll and swings hard. Matt Baxter balances the rarest of commodoties among guitarists- taste- with an uncanny knack for driving songs home. The smart charts of Roxy's horn section, Baron Raymonde, Dave Mullen and Paul Brandenberg, add a big , brassy, uptown party sound to the mix. As Ms. Perry puts it , " No ass draggers here."
Nothing tired about the setlist either; all the songs are fresh sounding originals. Roxy and her band make the most of the album's only shuffle, ''Hey Mr.'', mixing grease and honk in equal proportions. From there the horizons broaden. ''Do the Right Thing'' a Big Apple-centric, streetwise strut, finds Roxy issuing instructions on propper conduct and Baxter taking the jazzy route in his guitar break. Roxy invests ''Way Down'' a sophisticated eight bar blues. The rideout zig-zags into supercharged gospel testifying. ''Men Like You'', a case study in dynamics, shifts from simmering to speaker blowing. Second-line drumming and fine Dixieland horn work underpin the wistful verses and jubilant choruses of Roxy's New Orleans dream. ''shakin off the Blues''. ''Struck Down,'' takes maximum minor key advantage of the Perry band's big sound. Roxy closes with ''Tailgate Swing,'' a driving acoustic blues in the Muddy Waters style.
Roxy's the real deal. Her instincts are dead-on; she caresses introspective numbers like ''Woo-ooh'' and blows the lid off rockers like the explosive ''The Blues Don't Knock. So push the chairs aside, cause a set's worth of New York City blues, Roxy Perry style, is about to come to you. Roxy on the scene at Manny's Car Wash: ''We judge how well the night went by how much furniture is still standing, how many waitresses are passed out on the floor, and how deep the lake of beer is
in front of the stage.'' All that good-time power comes across loud and clear on NYBQ. Curtsy, kneel or bow down. Roxy Perry IS New York's Blues Queen.

Like Blues? You'll Love NY BLUES QUEEN!
I'm not one to take time writing reviews...but...this one is deserved. Saw Roxy Perry and her band at a July 4th fireworks show, and had to buy her CD. Bought it and took it on a trip this weekend. Listened to it twice, going and returning. My wife and I 'bopped' and 'tapped' to every song, with the CD's wonderful blend of blues and, at times, a sense of ole' rock & roll. There are numerous instrumental interludes, adding to the listening pleasure of the entire CD. If we had a complaint at all, it is that more than the 9 songs on the CD would have been great. Couldn't get enough. Enough said.

"Real Deal"... & other understatements!
First time I heard Roxy was on a "Music Choice" digital TV channel... but may as well have come to me thru the hot vacuume tubes of an old AM radio; turned 'jus right' and New York-ward on a windowsill. It may have taken me a few minutes before I looked to read the liner-note... but till then I was sure I was hearing one of the blues-queens: not merely of New York, but of the genre. My first instinct was to apply for a steady blues-harp position if one ever came up... but then reaized it was Roxy herself blowin' that Mississippi saxophone like a hurricane- and all that between a voice callin' and "answerin' back" with blues and tenacity of a soul leanin' into a hail-storm!! For fear of understatement- if you miss this blues queen... you've missed a national treasure!!

NY Blues Queen
To Roxy's music I first came into touch by "Back To Bluesville", a real phenomenal recording. So I became interested in more by the NY Blues Queen.
And the so called CD is also great. Roxy is growing with every recording. Only Roxy live can top it, I guess. I didn't have this pleasure yet.

Phenomenal lady...not only as a blues singer but as a wonderful songwriter!
My father always loved me to sing to him since I was a child..I am 58 years old now and have sang blues most of my life. I lost my father last year and I have pretty much given up performing, so when I start getting down..I take out Roxy's CD (that I purchased in NY) and I immediately feel so excited. The songs touch me..it's like they were written about my life in so many ways. You cannot sing the blues without living them and feeling them "WAY DOWN". Thank you Roxy Perry, NY Blues Queen.
