Album Review

PROFESSOR JOHNNY P's JUKE JOINT, John Porter

"While they continue to set the bar higher and higher for performance, they’ve just raised it for an album as well."

PBS 106.7 FM, Peter Merrett

"No doing it by the numbers with washy imitations but rather with unfettered unadulterated talent to not only perform brilliantly but to also compose instant classics."



INDIE VOICE BLOG, Bob Leggett

"Their sound combines elements of funk, soul, gospel and rock to form their own variety of progressive blues."

BLUES AGAIN! BLUES IN ALL ITS STATES, Caesar

"The blues offered by this group has its roots deep in the origins of this music and draws a completely modern and contemporary flavor."

BMAN’S BLUES REPORT, Bman

"Very nice ...it’s a powerhouse ... with sounds reminiscent of (a) more primitive blues which is really becoming a trademark for The Bush League ...a rawthentic blues experience"

MARY4MUSIC.COM, Peter “Blewzzman” Lauro, Blues Editor

"Hopefully, breaking out onto the national scene is next in the band’s grand scheme of things, and from what I just heard – “James RiVAh,” their strongest effort yet – may very well be the vehicle to take them there."
