Ever since their first gig at Lane Hall on the campus of The University of Delaware in 1973, the band has traveled the world with its brand of Booze & Boogie Rock. A main stay on classic rock radio with hits like One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer; Move It On Over; Who Do You Love; Bad To The Bone; I Drink Alone; Get A Haircut; You Talk Too Much; Treat Her Right; The Fixer and Tail Dragger. The band has kept up a grinding pace performing for a loyal fan base the world over and, after 40 years, there is no sign of slowing down.

George and the band are busy working on a new album to be released early next year. They will once again join forces with Nashville producer Tom Hambridge, who worked with the band on the critically acclaimed record 2120 South Michigan Avenue, a tribute to the Chicago blues label Chess Records. This time the project will consist entirely of original material; songs that demonstrate the broad reach of George’s songwriting, with some titles going back to the beginning of his recording career. George and Tom have combed through the vaults and found a handful of nuggets that no one has heard, along with a few songs that they want to record again with a new sound.

The band returned from Europe and did a run of dates with blues great Buddy Guy in August. They will spend this fall and winter finishing their album and plan to return to the road in February 2014.

As always, you know what you’re getting. No guesswork here. It’s hard-rocking, thirst-quenching, over-the-top rock ‘n’ roll with a generous serving of the blues.
