Boogiemen – Scream ‘n Howl
The Boogiemen were a five-piece blues band who played an energetic blend of traditional blues, rock-blues, R&B and rockabilly. What's interesting about his band is their low-key approach and apparent lack of a front person. There is no one lead that takes center stage all the time. If there is a lead instrument in the band, it would have to be the harp playing of Chuck Edwards who has a definite leaning toward the classic Chicago blues harp sound.
The band combines elements of blues, rock, country, R&B, and rockabilly with a dash of Texas style boogie to create a cool blend of rockin' blues on their new release on Blue Loon, "Scream 'n Howl'.
"Scream 'n Howl' features 14 great songs that showcase howling harmonica, rocking guitar, some great boogie-woogie piano, a tight rhythm section that knows where the "pocket" is, and some fine vocal performances by both group members and the Holmes Brothers, who make a guest appearance on "Members Only".
While the Boogiemen's rocking style amy not always appeal to some hard-to-please blues purists, fans of the Fabulous Thunderbirds, early J. Geils Bans, the Red Devils, and other contemporary artists shoald become instant fans of the disc's energy and honesty.
