By not only keeping the blues alive but also expanding its boundaries, Mike and the boys prove night after night that they deserved to be Two-Time Finalists at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis. ” - Beardo, Founder of Bandana Blues

The Franklin Sessions

The Latest Release!

The Franklin Sessions was born out of the desire to get back to a more organic approach to recording. All the rhythm tracks were cut with one take live in the studio. Kevin McKendree put a great band together:  Yates McKendree on drums, David Santos on bass, James Pennebaker on guitar and Kevin on keys for the session and we cut 4 tracks. I was so pleased with the sound, the vibe and Kevin’s guidance I brought my Rollin’ & Tumblin’ Bandmates Bill Sharrow, Billy Wear and Tim Hooper back to The Rock House and recorded 9 tracks over two days with Kevin joining us on keys. These recordings capture the essence of Rollin’ & Tumblin’ and we hope you dig it!
