THE HOMEMADE JAMZ BLUES BAND

THE GAME

2010-11-29

When you think of great Mississippi blues artist you probably think of BB King, Muddy Waters, Howlin Wolf, Willie Dixon, Otis Spann or Charlie Musselwhite. On their third release "The Game" you can add The Homemade Jamz Blues Band to this list. This is quite an accomplishment since guitarist and vocalist Ryan Perry is only eighteen, his brother and bassist Kyle Perry is sixteen and drummer Taya Perry who doesn't miss a beat is only twelve. All ten tracks for this disc were composed by their father Renauld Perry which keeps these songs of loss betrayal and hard times authentic and true. This CD easily gets my vote for the best traditional sounding Delta Blues CD for 2010 and that's quite an accomplishment when the oldest member is still only eighteen. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
