ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Moon Over Montgomery,” the second release produced by The McKee Brothers, once again features inspired performances by a talented roster of players from Los Angeles and Michigan, including soulful vocalists Bob Schultz (original keyboardist with Bob Seger), Jeff Robinson, Reggie Gonzales, Maxayn Lewis, Laith Al-Saadi (vocal and guitar – 2016 finalist on “The Voice”), Larry McCray (vocal and guitar), guitarist Ari Teitel, keyboardists Bobby West and Jim Alfredson (formerly with Janiva Magness and in Organis- simo), horn players Lee Thornburg (formerly of Tower of Power, now touring with Joe Bonamassa) and Doug Webb (Posi-Tone Records recording artist), bassists Bobby Watson (Rufus), Al Threats, and J.V. Collier (Bruce Hornsby) - as well as the brothers themselves: Denis McKee on guitar, keyboards, bass, and vocals, and Ralph McKee on bass, lap steel guitar, and vocals.

The music is high-energy and soulful, in several styles: from gospel (the inspirational title track paying tribute to the 1965 civil rights march), gritty funk (Go 2 Work!, Bayou Man, I Feel Like Dynamite, Blues of the Month Club), soul (Where You Gettin’ It?, Runaway Love, and the Latin-flavored Late At Night), jazz-blues (Kicks), to the funky country of Confidential and the rock of Remember When. Check out Laith Al-Saadi’s vocal and Larry McCray’s guitar on Worried About Tomorrow, the incendiary blues vocal by Jeff Robinson on You Know How I Lie, with smokin’ guitar by Al-Saadi, the rhythm section’s irre- sistible New Orleans grooves on Flat, Black, & Circular and Pigfeet, the great Lee Thornburg horn arrangement on the gospel ballad Celebrate Me Home, and some impressive guitar work throughout by Denis McKee.

“Moon Over Montgomery is a triumph on several levels. The excellent musicianship with a shared purpose, the top drawer singing of original music, and the excellent leadership and individual performances of the Brothers themselves lifts the sounds to a very high level. It is at once listenable and excit- ing, uplifting and inspired soul based music, which is rare these days. If you are not already hip to the great McKee Brothers you’d best get aboard this bullet train and ride as far as they can take you.” - Michael G. Nastos, WCBN-FM, Hot House Magazine, Michigan Music Hall of Fame, SEMJA Lifetime Music Award Recipient

“Moon over Montgomery by the McKee Bros is in high rotation on the Capitol City Blues Cruise here at WMMQ. The recording is fantastic and it has an incredible collection of stellar musi- cians from the West Coast and Mid-West. The CD is a joy to listen to. I am glad to be able play it for my listeners here in Michigan.” - Scott Allman, Host - Capitol City Blues Cruise, WMMQ, Lansing, Michigan
