RSB - Into The Blue-"The Inside Story"

Hi Everyone! I can't believe how long it's been since I've posted here to our site, but this is certainly blog-worthy news! We have been working round the clock to finish up our new CD, Into The blue. It's scheduled to drop Labor Day Weekend. We should have it for our show at Harpoon Eddie's on Aug. 31 and certainly for our show at the Blues In The Bay fest in Alex Bay on Sat. Sept. 1st at 6pm.

We are excited to share our latest music with all of you. It's been a long time coming, but we feel it will be well worth the wait. This is our best effort yet and for the first time we will be including a couple of cover songs along with eight RSB originals. We've got something for everyone here - Chicago style shuffle, 60's Stax style r&b, up-tempo boogie, swamp blues, T-Bone Walker inspired blues, rockers and a New Orleans second-liner.  Recorded to analog tape  to get that old school vibe-this is our best sounding record yet!

Recorded at Moletrax Studio here in Syracuse, NY, by Jeff Moleski. We tracked in the studios' huge tracking room live with the whole band with no headphones! Call us brave or foolish, but we wanted to try to get that live feel of the band playing off of each other. I think the results bear this out. This is not to say that we didn't fix some 'oops moments' and add other instruments in the mix, but the basic rhythm tracks and many of the solos you will be hearing are live and in the moment.! We opted to use the take that had the 'vibe' regardless of a few minor mistakes. 'Perfectly flawed' is what I call it!

Stay tuned for more of the inside story behind 'RSB-Into the Blue'!
