Hot on the heels of their Blues Music Award-nominated Earwig debut, Stop And Think About It
, San Diego-based vocalist/guitarist Chris James and bassist Patrick Rynn return with their eagerly awaited encore Gonna Boogie Anyway
. Christ and Patrick's roots are firmly planted in traditional blues; they're expert at raw-edged Chicago and Delta styles as well as swinging jump blues. Gonna Boogie Anyway
features several unplugged selections - a first for the duo - showcasing their unerring grasp of the idiom alongside hard-driving band-backed tracks. Original material dominates, though Chris and Patrick revive classics by Bo Diddley, Jimmy Reed, and Robert Lockwood, Jr. Their studio cohorts include piano legends Henry Gray (1950s sideman to Bo Diddley and Howlin' Wolf) and ex-Freddie King keyboard accompanist David Maxwell and drummers Sam Lay and Willie Hayes; Bob Corritore and Earwig label mate Rob Stone share harmonica duties. Deep, satisfying blues with a high-energy swagger!
