Tomblin, Lucky Band, Red Hot From Blue Rock

Red Hot from Blue Rock is an apt description for this sizzling collection of 13 songs delivered by Austin’s purveyors of homegrown Texas honky-tonk music, The Lucky Tomblin Band. With two previous albums of critically-acclaimed roadhouse music under its collective belt, The Lucky Tomblin Band returns with yet another dance floor mix of both originals and well-chosen covers by such classic writers as Hank Williams Jerry Lee Lewis Moon Mullican, Mel Tillis Buddy Knox, Tommy Duncan and Billy “The Kid” Emerson among others. Not many bands can boast the amazing personnel of this group: Lucky Tomblin (lead vocals), Redd Volkaert (lead guitar and lead vocals), Earl Poole Ball (piano and lead vocals), John X. Reed (lead guitar and lead vocals), Sarah Brown (bass and lead vocals), Bobby Arnold (rhythm guitar and lead vocals) and Jon Hahn on drums. Besides taking the lead vocals on four songs on Red Hot from Blue Rock, band leader Lucky Tomblin spreads the lead singing chores throughout the band, with Redd, Earl, Johnand Sarah each singing on two songs and Bobby making his singing debut. “If the Lucky Tomblin Band doesn't put you in a honky-tonk mood, there's eithersomething wrong with you, or you're not really listening,” said one reviewer about theband’s sound. “This is classic honky-tonk as it was meant to be played,” said another. Perhaps yet a third reviewer may have had the best description yet of this music when he wrote: “Tomblin and crew deliver what a good time Luckenbach honky-tonk Saturday night must have felt like back when the earth was cooling.”
