The Little Red Rooster Blues Band: Lock up the Liquor

The Little Red Rooster Blues Band have been playing their spicy mix of Chicago Blues and West Coast Jump Blues for more than 30 years, establishing themselves as a household name in Philadelphia and the Delaware Valley. Their latest album Lock up the Liquor is perfectly to create a sweet buzz without using outside stimulants, liquid or otherwise.

As per usual in their genre, their songs are about trouble and mishaps, but they will always take it in their stride when the shit hits the fan. In fact they can joke about like they do in Thrift Shop Rubbers ("second-hand protection is no protection at all". Lock up the Liquor is a feelgood record about being getting beaten down and rise to the occasion to come out on top. Honourable mentions for their harp player Dave Holtzman and special guest Anthony Geraci on piano for making it swing.
