You Better Believe It!
Terence McArdle will delight swing dancers, roots music fans, and blues lovers alike with his swinging guitar, rough vocalizing, swinging shuffle grooves, and pulsing horns -- a sound both retro and modern. His music is danceably fun but still bluesy and deep. 'You Better Believe It' spotlights McArdle's voice and guitar in several styles and contexts: a jump r'n'b band with horns; a 40s style cocktail blues combo with piano, upright bass, and brushed drums; a very funky, contempory blues rhythm section; and a Chicago blues band with harmonica front and center. The songs include fresh interpretations of classics by Rosco Gordon, T-Bone Walker, Guitar Slim, Clarence 'Bon Ton' Garlow, John Lee 'Sonny Boy' Williamson, and Tampa Red among others plus two original instrumentals (Boogie For Pee Wee and Mimona) destined to become classics for blues guitar fans everywhere.
