Nuthin' But a Thang!
."It is good music so the pleasure is mine and you are helping us sound good. I am playing two tracks from your disc - 'The Other Side of Town' and 'Too Blessed To Be Depressed." A big thumbs up!" - BILL WAX SIRIUS/XM RADIO - "Glenn Patrik does his thang with a flair and style that's laid back and relaxed, yet in control. Well worth several listens!" - BLUES DELUXE RADIO SHOW - "Glenn Patrik's latest musical smorgasbord "Nuthin' But A Thang" offers up a veritable cornucopia of tasty treats representing each of the four essential ear food groups: blues, jazz, rock, and soul... a very diverse and talented guitarist/singer/songwriter who is joined on this project by a very talented supporting cast... Lot of good stuff on this CD but I especially enjoyed the blues/rockin' "Too Blessed to be Depressed", "Don'tcha Know", which really let's the band shine, and the very fine instrumental track "Last Night." - BLUESROCKERS - "Patrik's Blues pedigree becomes evident from the first enjoyable notes of track one, 'Don't Call Me Daddy'...the band swings up-tempo: bass and drums popping and the organ holds the bottom while Patrik expertly plays a few bars of Blue notes on guitar... After 40 years on the Blues journey, Patrik has reached another milestone. His CD came across as joyful and fun loving, and if you are not having any fun on the highway, then you are missing the trip." - BLUES BLAST - "Patrik carries a genuine Kansas City swing with his message, allowing his band to flow comfortably with it's rhythmic wave and to cover the territory with finger-poppin' charm... sings with authority and fills on guitar while coordinating with bass, keyboards and drums...at his best with soulful ballads such as "Friend of Mine," where his sincere approach leaves a powerful message...exhibits a clear mastery of the guitar." - SOUTHLAND BLUES - "Folks with a jones for classic roadhouse blues-rock would do well to check out this artist, whose "Don't Call Me Daddy" defines the genre..."The Bossman" allows this performer to show off some proficient guita licks...an excellent calling card for live gigs." - MUSIC CONNECTION - "NUTIN' BUT A THANG! Captures all that is best in American music...true swing and great ensemble playing...a superb album." - VICKYS BLUES & ROOTS (U.K.) - "NUTHIN' BUT A THANG! Is a pleasant surprise...a very entertaining disc by a Bluesman who's always strived to make the best of all the opportunities to learn and hone his craft. A real treat to listen to. - BLUES BYTES - 'If you are in need of a smokey lounge vibe with stingin' guitar licks; rich, raspy velvet vocals and fresh, yet hauntingly familiar tunes; catch what Glenn Patrik is layin' down on 'Nuthin' But A Thang'. It is just what the doctor ordered!' - HAMMERED BY THE BLUES - "Glenn Patrik's new CD 'NUTHIN' BUT A THANG!' shows us all the limitless possibilities one can achieve... From the opening Track 'Don't Call Me Daddy', to the closing Track 'Other Side of Town', Patrik offers us his no-nonsense approach to the Blues; Front Jump-Style Blues, to lingering Soulful Blues, and beyond, Glenn mixes it up very nicely and offers us a CD sure to please all. A very fine addition to Patrik's Musical Resume. " - BLUES UNDERGROUND - "Oh yes! This will sway your hips, and offers proof that the Blues still swing like hell...'4pm Blues', is ample proof of Patrik's Blues versatility, and his guitar stings and soars with distinct echoes of Albert Collins and Buddy Guy. He's also got some great lyrical qualities, too - check out the blue-collar complaining of 'Too Blessed To Be Depressed' and you'll be impressed. It's great to know that there are bands like this around who can still offer us that exciting buzz real urban Blues provides." - BLUES MATTERS - "Kickin' off with the real thing, Glenn Patrik swims through a breeze of West Coast downbeat swing tunes, starting with "Don't Call Me Daddy"... Blues can get gritty, but Glenn knows how to get it down for real... there's some fiery and Old School Fender guitar. Screwy and scary string-bending aerobics are going on here. It's a guy playing really killer guitar...a CD that you will want in your special place on the shelf. There's a great desire to express Glenn's personal trip in the Blues . I hope that is more to come from this man and his group. Get this CD and enjoy!" - BLUES SOURCE - 'Glenn Patrick's music mixes the best of the Kansas City style blues with a large serving of Old Town Chicago. A perfect blend of traditional and contemporary blues that grabs a hold of you and doesn't let go.' - KKFI-FM (KANSAS CITY) - "Glenn Patrik leaves you wanting more as you watch him perform. I enjoy watching him play his guitar. It's as if it is an extension of his body." - BOOKS, BLUES & BETTING - "Old-school electric blues highlights include the closing number - the funky 'Other Side Of Town'; his own reworking of 'Kansas City' the emotive voodoo like "One More Day" and the cool-as-hell funk-ified "Thang Thang." - METALLIVILLE - "Glenn's cover of "Kansas City" lays down a funky, distorted organ sound low into the mix again, accenting the soulful tenor of Patrik's vocals..." - ALL ACCESS MAGAZINE - "A perfect marriage between Kansas City and Chicago blues...on "Kansas City" Patrik brings his own laid-back shuffle, now adorned with beautiful guitar riffs. "Patrik's blues are a combination of funky Robert Cray type feel and some witty contemporary Chicago blues sounds; fresh and clever guitar work fascinates with every solo... this guy is good, very good. From the opener 'Don't Call Me Daddy" 'to the closer' Other Side Of Town' song for song, he keeps you effortlessly under a spell." ...we hope that Glenn Patrik will take the the time to fly from Kansas City to Europe!" - ROOTSTIME (BELGIUM) - "Look out, fellow Blues DJ's: You got all the Blues, in all the styles, on one single CD!
