Wall of Thunder
Bluespower is a mix of Blues, Jazz, Country, & of course good old Rock 'n' Roll. At the Heart of Bluespower are members Scot Clark (Guitar-Vocals) Erwin Kreiner (Bass-Vocals) & James 'Chubbs' Heimbuch (Drums-Vocals), all original members since they formed back in October of 1994. Their music can best be described as 'High-Energy Blues', but with the capability to switch to 'Low Down' Blues, Jazz, Country, or Rock 'n' Roll at the drop of a hat. Bluespower began by playing the local club circuit, including local biker bars & corner Pubs. Gigging regularly in New York - New Jersey, they began to discover their sound. It's a unique combination of Freddie King meets Jimi Hendrix, meets Johnny Winter, meets Stevie Ray Vaughn, meets Rory Gallagher, meets Muddy Waters, meets Cream, meets.....Well, you know what we mean. They have recorded 4 CDs to date (Produced by the group themselves, and engineered by Mike Marangi of 'The Doghouse' Studios). 2 CDs, Wall of Thunder (1998) & Spare Parts (2002) contain mostly original songs (The only song that isn't an original is 'Boot Hill' from the Wall of Thunder CD). The other 2 CDs are live recordings which contain cover songs, & they are used primarily for promotional purposes. The CDs represent what Bluespower are all about, a mixture of many different musical styles packaged in a Blues-Rock format. Most people who attend a Bluespower show say 'Wow'! But what you will also notice is how much fun they are having. They thoroughly enjoy playing. Whether they're performing at an outdoor festival or at a small intimate club, they are in their element.....and that element is music.
