ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Vini and the Demons' blues come at you wailing, hissing, flailing, sizzling, exploding, crackling, hurting... the magic is working from the first note."
-- Shamrock McShane
MOON MAGAZINE - August 2001

VINI AND THE DEMONS

In Muddy Waters' song, Deep Down in Florida, he sings about going to Gainesville "...to see some friends of mine." Gainesville is the town where Vini and the Demons came together for their debut performance on October 29, 1999. For the next two years they played the blues; from Miami's Tobacco Road to Fat Matt's Rib Shack in Atlanta. At the beginning of winter in 2001, the Demons relocated as a band to Chicago, like many of their blues heroes did before them.

The Demons vowed a sacred oath to help keep the blues thriving into the 21st century and beyond. Vini and the Demons made this commitment, in part, with the encouragement and blessing of Muddy Waters' daughter Ros, and the legendary Bo Diddley, both supporters and fans of the band.

Since their arrival in Chicago, the Demons were a feature act for two years on rotation at Eddy "The Chief" Clearwater's Reservation Blues. The Demons have played on just about every blues stage in Chicago. Vini and the Demons have shared the stage with Eddie Taylor, Jr., Little Arthur Duncan, Billy Branch and the Sons of Blues, Bo Diddley, Sharon Lewis, Eddy "The Chief" Clearwater, Jimmy Burns, and many other legendary blues musicians.

With a repertoire of over 70 blues standards and original Demon songs, Vini and the Demons keep their audiences drinking, dancing, and feeling the blues the way it was meant to be experienced.

Vini and the Demons never rehearse or perform until they have had a ritual shot of Jack Daniel's in honor of Robert Johnson, and all the blues musicians who have come before them. The Demons do not play non-smoking venues.

Makes you wanna slap yo mamma!!!
I was lucky enough to see VINI AND THE DEMONS in some of their earliest performances in Gainesville. This group and their album lifts you right out of your seat and touches and possesses areas of the soul you didn't know existed. They are masters at capturing an audience such that the listener will want to hang on to every note. Their delivery encircles and flows through your mind, body, and soul. A truly deep group such as THE DEMONS which sets itself apart only comes along once and a long while. This album is not just for the Blues purist but will appeal to anyone who appreciates great music. I also highly recommend taking advantage of any opportunity to experience their shows!!!

A Band like this? Once in a Blue Moon
There are many Blues Bands in Chicago but very seldom do they take you back and forge ahead in Blues artistry.Pay attention folks. You'll know it when you hear it. They are consistently good and they leave you asking for one more set.Go see them! Then you will be able to say I knew them when...And oh, by the way. When you go to see them ask them to play Someday after awhile by Freddie King. It gives me gooe bumps every time.

These guys are the REAL deal
I haven't had a CD move me like this one does in a very long time. Go ahead and listen to your favorite classic blues recordings. Then listen to this baby. If you love those old classics, you will be certain of one thing; these guys are doing it RIGHT. The coolest part? Most of these songs are ORIGINALS and stand toe to toe with the standards. In my opinion, Vini and the Demons are creating the NEW BLUES CLASSICS.

The Demons Are Incredible!
This collection of both vintage blues and original Demons
tunes is the just a perfect blend of old and new. They have got this blues thing down cold. Whether its 'Sittin' On Top of the World' or 'Shake Your Ass For Me', the Demons play it with feeling. The intensity and emotion in their playing
is what comes thru on every track, and that's what makes this CD so great to listen to.

LIKE POTATO CHIPS - YOU CAN'T JUST EAT ONE
THE INTENSITY THRILLS THIS REVIEWER. IT FORCES YOU TO LISTEN TO EACH CUT OVER AND OVER. THE SKILL OF THESE 4 PROFESSIONALS IS VERY EVIDENT. A FRIEND OF MINE LISTENED TO IT 12 TIMES CONTINUOUSLY. DON'T FORGET TO PLAY IT LOUD - VERY LOUD! YOU'LL FEEL LIKE YOU'RE IN A SMOKE FILLED DANCE CLUB IN MISSISSIPPI. LIKE A POTATO CHIP - YOU GOTTA TASTE IT AGAIN AND AGAIN.
OH - AND BEFORE YOU LISTEN TO IT - HAVE A SHOT OF JACK....

PP from Istanbul


Viniandthedemons' music just inject the Blues into your veins. The unbearable awareness of having to go on no matter what, every (fcukn) day. I listen to it.. and I feel burned by the notes and the lirics; that's when the BLUES do POSSESS your soul. This music is the salt on your bruises. Be careful: It makes you realize, it makes you see. That's because, Viniandthedemons play their hearts and not just instruments.
