New Blues Revolution Live on the Sunset Strip

New Blues Revolution

Somebody (okay, the band’s pr guy) asked me to check out this blues band that was playing at the House of Blues /Crossroads in Hollywood so I said, “Sure, Why not!” The band was called the New Blues Revolution and I have to admit I was impressed. They were pretty damn good. Here was a band that played to the true meaning of the “House of Blues”! They played some of their original music like “Let Me Go”, threw in some Talking Heads and channeled Jim Morrison for “LA Woman.” I was even pleasantly surprised when they brought up Miss Idaho to sing “Mustang Sally” with them.  And she did not disappoint the blues crowd enjoying their cocktails

The band consists of Bill Grisolia on vocals and piano, Chapman Cooper on guitar, Barry Hayman on bass and Philip E. Hardy on drums. The four of them create a high-energy blues sound that is modern but still deep and soulful. They open for a diverse range of music legends including Tab Benoit, Macy Gray, Leon Russell, Rick Derringer, Burt Bacharach, Blood Sweat & Tears, Three Dog Night, David Lindley, Michael Burks and Katey Segal and receive rave reviews where ever they play.
