ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Juke Hounds share an attitude-- a Midwestern grit that makes them relate to the blues and to each other.

When the Jukes play, you’ll hear echoes of BB King and James Cotton along with a defiance and swagger that says "you can't keep me down." The music, the lyrics and the bands’ aggressive stage presence announce they are a force to be reckoned with.

Says Rhys Williams of Blues Blast Magazine: "Kicking off with “I Drive”, which features a riff reminiscent of an updated, angular, more frazzled “Smokestack Lightnin’”, Gardner sings with real venom: “Backseat drivers give me lip, I ain’t going to take their shit, because it’s my life, my way, I drive.” The attitude in both the lyrics and the aggressive attack of the musicians reflects the grit and power that is found throughout Bluesitude. But this is also a band that understands light and shade. When Kormanik steps up for his harmonica solo in “I Drive”, the band slips into a gentler, funky, backing rhythm before Kormanik, Barber and Dominick drop out entirely, leaving Smallwood’s drums and Gardner’s solo guitar. Gardner pulls out a powerfully melodic solo while the musicians re-enter gradually to help build the tension and momentum of an impressive song. “

And Mladen Loncar of the Soundguardian.com writes: “Deeply immersed in a dynamic, effective and inervirajući electric blues, these experienced musicians without doubt manage to effectively connect and present their original material and traditional blues repertoire. “
