Johnnie & the Lowdowns
Johnnie & the Lowdowns know that the song is more important than any one member. It's all about the groove. While avoiding the obvious and overplayed, Johnnie & The Lowdowns still cover a Who's Who of classic Blues greats, including Muddy Waters, Howling Wolf, Elmore James, Jimmy Reed, BB and Albert King and Willie Dixon, while also giving props to some of the more contemporary and urban Blues artists such as David Bromberg, Son Seals, Houndog Taylor and Junior Wells. Johnnie & The Lowdowns mixes in a healthy dose of original material, ranging in styles from straight ahead Blues, to Swing and New Orleans, Detroit and Memphis style RB. The variety of music played will ensure that there is something for everyone, including the dancers in the crowd. They have developed a reputation for putting on a great live show, playing full out whether it is 5 or 500 people in the room. This is the bands freshman release, recorded at The Project Studio in Richmond, Virginia. The CD will be distributed by Digitone Records, an independent record label. Right now the Lowdowns are looking ahead, polishing their live show and writing new material for future releases. Their slogan still sums it all up. 'We got your Blues right here'
