ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Toby & The Tremors are:
Toby Rhodes – Lead Vocals, Keyboards
Kevin “Stik” Paul – Guitar, Vocals
Larry O’Connor – Bass, Vocals
Tim Scruggs – Drums, Vocals
Bobby Imundo – Sax, Vocals

Continuing the band’s creative musical journey, the group has released their second album: HOTEL BLUE. The album kicks in with the title track’s haunting melody and lyrics. Other stand-out tracks include “LETTER FROM LONDON” with its “Stones-like” bass line, and “MR. NOBODY” which has the makings of becoming a Blues classic. Another track, written by Toby and Kevin Lee is “THESE LETTERS,” which captures the loneliness of our troops in a distant land and the importance of receiving cherished mail from home. Also, there is a revved-up version of Robert Parker’s “BAREFOOTIN’” with Stik’s smokin’ guitar and Toby’s raw vocals.

Toby Rhodes

From T.V. commercials to radio jingles, “The Voice” has that identifiable quality and razor edge that cuts through your soul and hammers home its message. “Blue Eyed Soul” has now been reinvented with a new millennium touch. Toby has co-written songs with Kevin Lee and The Lonesome City Kings on MCA Records.

Kevin “Stik” Paul

A true Blues guitar veteran, “Stik” grew up in Chicago where he formed his style while working the “Chitlin Circuit.” Recently, his music has carried him overseas to support his various releases on the Provouge label in Amsterdam. “Stik” squeezes more emotion out of a Fender Stratocaster than most, and this effort is no exception.

Larry O’Connor

Veteran bass player Larry O’Connor’s credits include playing with the Joe Kelly Blues Band and Ted Aliotta of “Lake Shore Drive” fame. Larry adds just the right punch to the band.

Tim “Timmy” Scruggs

The other half of the foundation is also a Music Major. After attending the conservatory of music, Tim stretched out with acts such as Moonflower, Prey’n Mantyz, and Ted Aliotta. His rock solid style has brought him to play shows at Soldier Field and other similar events. As Toby puts it, “Charlie Watts was busy, so I called Timmy!” In February 2004, Timmy and the 101st Rock Division, entertained our troops in Kuwait, Iraq, U.A.E. and several countries in Africa.

Bobby Imundo

The latest addition to the band, sax player, Bobby Imundo is the perfect fit for the group with his hard-hitting soulful solos. He has done work for The Ides of March and Streetplayer, which was produced by the group Chicago.

WOW!! Haunting Melody and Vocals
While the title track, "Hotel Blue," has a haunting melody and vocals, "Mr. Nobody," is pure bluesy rockin' soul at its best and could very well be the title track. "These Letters" needs to be released to our troops in Iraq. "Soul Shakin" makes you want to jump up and dance, and Rolling Stones' fans will love "Letter from London." Can't get enough of this one! Even better than their first CD!

Toby Rhodes gives Toby & The Tremors an R&B edge
Vocalist/keyboardist Toby Rhodes gives Toby & The Tremors an R&B edge on their second CD, Hotel Blue. Rhodes writes most of the band's material and gets solid support from his mates, particularly guitarist Kevin "Stik" Paul. Soul Shakin' is a classic road song while the slinky Mr. Nobody and hard-hitting Voodoo Charm are sure to get a crowd dancing. Hotel Blue closes with a rousing version of Barefootin'.
