Bandleader-drummer-singer Big Joe Maher leads a group of blues pros, young and old, that include bassist Tom “Mookie” Brill, keyboard ace Kevin McKendree, 16 year old guitar ace Yates McKendree, guitarist Robert Frahm and 16 year old singer-guitar female phenom Erin Coburn on his uplifting Rockhouse Party record.
Sharing vocal duties with bassist Tom Brill, Big Joe and Brill both deliver soulful performances song after song. This record truly lives up to its moniker. Soul-stirring vocals bolstered by Kevin McKendree’s world-class piano & keyboard chops, slick guitar work from the up and coming Frahm, McKendree & Coburn and Big Joe’s flawless timekeeping. Good stuff! [B.M.O.]
