The quintet is featured on Hummel’s 2014 release on Electro Fi’s “The Hustle Is Really On”, nominated for a Blues Music Award for best traditional blues cd in 2015. Funderburgh produced the newest upcoming Hummel/Golden State/Lone Star project, set for Feb. 2016. You’ll be hearing some very new and yet released tunes in the mix. Having these blues masters together in an intimate setting will knock your socks off!
Little Charlie sums up the collective mojo of the band best: “This is all about 5 guys who have been playing music all their lives, but each night play with the energy and excitement of their first gig.” Their upcoming album is bound to be one of the most listened to and talked about Blues Albums of 2016. Alone or with past bands, the three are individually outstanding. Come to Studio Bob to hear them together on tour!
