Running with the Herd
Blueganu's music is a blend of Americana, Blues, Country and Rock. The band consists of four seasoned players who have cut their teeth and honed their skills in roadhouses and clubs throughout the New England area for the past 30 years. If you're a fan of roots based music you'll enjoy the well-crafted music of this talented band. The songs and performances are earthy and real; born of many years playing in the smoke filled, neon flickering venues that are rapidly vanishing from the American musical landscape. BC Magazine CD Review 6/7/2007: Tongue-firmly in cheek for most of this stuff but it just washes over you like a pleasant shower. It's blues-folky rock that just puts a smile on your face no matter how grumpy you might be. This lot even get a way with a twee entitled/lyrical 'Sugar' with it's infectious tune and cheery lyrics. There are odes to Memphis on here, 'Take Me Back To Memphis,' and the mountains, 'Man of the Mountains,' naturally. This is not the music for racing down the motorway but a disc for when the weather outside is rubbish, you got a glass of jack in your hand, and you just want to listen to some aural fun. Imagine a less stoned Grateful Dead and a less pretentious Fish with a dash of ole' school blues. And I would be shirking my duties if I did not say the playing on here is first rate.
