DR. TEQUILA

DR. TEQUILA

2010-11-16

Take a shaker and mix in one part Jimmy Buffett, one part Santana, a Jigger of Dr. Loco's Rockin JalapeƱo band and a splash of the blues and you have a good description of Dr. Tequila. Dr. Tequila other wise known as Richie Barron resides from the San Francisco California area and has put together a rocking band that he calls the Mission "D" Project as this recording was made in the mission district of San Francisco. The title track has a Latin beat that could jump start any party. "See You Next Summer" sounds like it could have been recorded as a Jimmy Buffett theme song. "Dream World" is the most traditional blues track on this disc and "No Trouble Tonight" is a rocking tune that may just funk you up. The only let down track I felt on this disc was the "Who Dat? Bayou Medley" where Dr. Tequila mixes Credence Clearwater's "Born On The Bayou" with Steppenwolf's "Born To Be Wild" , in simplistic terms Dr. Tequila is not a John Kay. This CD may not win a lot of awards, but it sure is fun. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
