Format: Audio CD
Mike Wheeler has traveled the world, played with the best of the best, and is a heavy-hitter, very much in demand, on Chicago's legendary blues scene. His band is exciting, dynamic and Mike himself is an epic talent, both vocally and on guitar. This is a phenomenal recording truly that truly demonstrates the essence of the blues in today's scene. I've had the pleasure of seeing Mike Wheeler and his band live many many times, because their energy and talent keeps you coming back for more. This cd captures why if you're ever in Chicago, this the band to see. By far one of the best blues releases to come out in a long time. Check it out, you won't be disappointed!
